My final list of 100 books are up! I'm so happy I reached this goal. Thanks to such a large reading challenge I read more books than I ever would have and I know my life enriched from the experience. This year my goal is back down to 50 books for a few reasons but most importantly, I found myself not reading certain books simply because they were too long and hopefully with half the books I won't have to do that.
In any event, here are some highlights from my readings in 2009. Each link takes you to my review of the book. I hope some of these are of interest to you!
Favorite Fiction: The Shadow of The Wind
Favorite YA Fiction: The Blue Notebook and Confetti Girl
Favorite Chick Lit: How to be Single
Favorite Classic: Revolutionary Road
Favorite Non-Fiction: Ornament of the World
Favorite Spiritual book: The Garden of Truth
Favorite book on writing: 78 reasons your book will never be published
Book that made me think: Life of Pi
I am slowly compiling my list of books to read for 2010. I know many of you kindly gave me suggestions several months ago and I'm looking forward to including those in my list of readings this year. BUT- can you please share your favorite books with me again and why you liked it? Your input much appreciated!
