What defines your year?

My life goes beyond writing and reading . . . but since this is a writing/reading/creativity blog, I'm going to define my reading life by authors. Sound weird? It might. I read a lot of books and I've noticed a trend. In 2007 I read Lois Lowery for the first time (as an adult) and I gobbled up all her books that year. In 2008 I devoured all of Eva Ibbotsons books. In 2009, I discovered Neal Shusterman for the very first time and read every book that I could get my hands on that he had written. There may be a couple more that I need to read, but I've read pert' near all ov'em!

It makes me wonder what author I'll discover or rediscover in 2010. Any suggestions? I'm up for it!

Consequently, I didn't reach the "50 books in a year" challenge, but I had fun trying. :0)

Also, I want to appologize for not being more involved w/ my blog friends at the end of this year. Along w/ my kids going all all different directions since school started and my current writing rut, I've had less time for blog interaction. I'm going to go visit blogs right now to make up for it.

Happy New Year, and Happy reading!
