Alison's Book Marks Top 10 Books Read in 2009
This was not easy. It was so hard that I'm sitting at my computer at 8pm on New Year's Eve unsure of my picks. I'll probably change my mind, but I'm pulling the trigger anyway.
Of the books I read in 2009, not necessarily those that were released in 2009, here are my favorites.
1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
2. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
3. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
4. The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson #5) by Rick Riordan
5. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
6. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
8. South of Broad by Pat Conroy
9. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
10. The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
11. The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson
Yeah, so my list has 11 books on it. It's my blog. Honestly, the last four books have changed position on the list so many times, I had to include #11.
