Favorites of 2009

Oh how I love to look back at what I’ve read throughout the year and revisit with the books that moved me. Whether they made me cry, laugh, think or simply entertain, I read a lot of books I enjoyed. Now, let me highlight the ones that really made my reading year. Here they are:

The Post-Office Girl by Stefan Zweig
The Slaves of Solitude
by Patrick Hamilton
My Cousin Rachel
by Daphne DuMaurier
by Jane Austen
Out Stealing Horses
by Per Petterson

Pieces of Me by Charlotte Gingras
by Laurie Halse Andersen
by Ellen Hopkins

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
A Morbid Taste For Bones
by Ellis Peters
Sharp Objects
by Gillian Flynn
The Blank Wall
by Elisabeth Sanxay Holding

Unfortunately, I didn’t do a very good job of reviewing a lot of the books I read this year so that’s why some of the books shown here don’t have links. Here’s hoping next year I’m a little bit more on top of things.

And, I have to point out that once again books that I read with the Slaves of Golconda ended up on my list of favorites (the Zweig & Hamilton). So if you are looking for an online book group discussion join us. We really read some gems throughout the year.

I’ll be looking forward to reading your best of lists too and tomorrow my end of year stats!
