3. Most Disappointing Book of 2010
Wildthorn by Jane Eagland

So that's it. Some of the books I have already reviewed on this blog, so I have put in the links.
If you visit, please leave a link so that I may visit your list, even though I plan to visit almost every one who signed the original meme, I love the siggestions so much.
Happy rest of the Holidays and God bless!!!!
