I realized I haven't been listing the books I've read since I finished my list of 33 from the 101 things project in October of 2008. Here are 27 of them haphazardly categorized, but I might be missing a few:

Four Stars
Beneath a Marble Sky - John Shors
Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert (The movie was good but not as good as the book. Believe the hype on this one.)
Midnight at the Dragon Cafe - Judy Fong Bates
My Name Is Memory - Ann Brashares (an unexpected birthday gift, but a great book)
The Birth of Venus - Sarah Dunant
The Other Boleyn Girl - Philippa Gregory
The Private Papers of the Eastern Jewel - Maureen Lindley (just finished today)
The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger (another one where the movie was good but the book better)

Three Stars
Breaking Dawn - Stephenie Meyer
Devil in the Details : Scenes from an Obsessive Girlhood - Jennifer Traig (so funny that I forced Aaron to borrow it)
Digging to America - Anne Tyler
Eclipse - Stephenie Meyer
Goodnight Nobody - Jennifer Weiner
Plan B - Emily Barr (Backpack is still my favorite book by Barr. They need to make at least one of her novels into a movie.)

Two Stars
Bookends - Jane Green
Cuba - Emily Barr
Driving over Lemons : An Optimist in Andalucia - Chris Stewart
Goddess for Hire - Sonia Singh
Jemima J - Jane Green
Notting Hell - Rachel Johnson (I need to read the sequel Shire Hell)
Tell Me Lies - Jennifer Cruisie
The Flawless Skin of Ugly People - Doug Crandall
The Last Summer of You and Me - Ann Brashares

Don't Remember Enough to Rate
Irish Girls About Town - Various
Scottish Girls About Town - Various
The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club - Laurie Notaro (All I can remember is most of the stories involved drinking too much.)

Hated it
Wanderlust - Chris Dyer (The "e-mail message" style was annoying and the characters were way too shallow.)

Thanks to paperbackswap, my To Be Read shelf is overflowing.
