Quarterly Check-in: Booklist

One of my goals for 2010 was to read 100 books, so at this point I should be a quarter of a way there? My list comes from slowly reading through the list of "1001 books you should read before you die", recommendations from friends, blogs, and magazines, classics I've been interested in, and pretty covers (apparently a fair amount of Chick Lit and Joseph Conrad this year). Here's what I got so far!
Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Ben Winters (and Jane Austen)
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
The Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood
The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
Oscar Wilde and the Dead Man's Smile by Gyles Brandreth
LA Candy by Lauren Conrad
Swimsuit by James Patterson
Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad
Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde
Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis
Nostromo by Joseph Conrad
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad
