Top Ten Reads 2009

I picked out my favorite literary-ish reads amid the shameful sea of smut that I consumed this year...hey! I took the LSAT! Give me a break!

  • The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
  • The Secret History - Donna Tartt
  • The Stone Diaries - Carol Shields
  • I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith
  • The Bone graphic novel series - Jeff Smith
  • We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson
  • The Magician's Elephant - Kate DiCamillo
  • The Hakawati - Rabih Alameddine
  • When Everything Changed - Gail Collins
  • In the Valley of the Kings - Terrence Holt
And if I absolutely had to pick the best of the best it would be In the Valley of the Kings - Terrence Holt. It's just phenomenal.
