I’ve waited until the last possible minute to get my “best of list” post up and as usual I always struggle with figuring out which books deserve to go on here. For various reasons these are the books that really made my year.
The Stone Angel by Margaret Laurence
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson
Life Studies by Susan Vreeland
Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Blaming by Elizabeth Taylor
Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
Capote in Kansas by Kim Powers
Out by Natsuo Kirino
The Glimmer Palace by Beatrice Colin
I almost hesitate to post this because I know as soon as I do I’ll think of just one more to add. And, then I think of all the others that I did enjoy too. Anyway, thank you to all of you who are sharing your best of lists. I love reading them and of course adding more books to the ever growing wish list.
Here’s to a great 2009. Happy New Year!
