  1. This is exactly why I started writing my reviews as a prompt of what I have read… unfortunately I only started in 2010 so I don’t have a clue what I read that year except it wasn’t anything on the list above!

    • Writing reviews is a nice reminder, absolutely. From this list, I only read ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire’.
      I will check the 2010 winners right before publishing the blog post – thrilling, really. 😉
