Best of 2009

2009 was a slow reading year for me, as you all know. I only read 45 books in 2009, compared to 101 in 2008 (top reads) and 95 in 2007 (top reads). And the ones that I did read were mostly in my favorite genre, mystery thriller, trying to kick-start my reading for the year. But these are all definitely my favorite authors and I recommend you read anything by them.

All of these books got the 5 star rating on my librarything list. Links are to the few that I did review on here.

  • Kindred in Death (Eve Dalla)- JD Robb
  • A Plague of Secrets (Dismas Hardy) - John Lescroart
  • Undone (Grant County) - Karin Slaughter
  • The entire series of Heartsick, Sweetheart and Evil at Heart - Chelsea Cain
  • Finger-lickin Fifteen - Janet Evanovich (much lighter than others in this group - back to her original laugh-out-loud books)
  • Judas Kiss - J.T. Ellison
  • Boneyard - Michelle Gagnon
  • Revenge of the Spellmans - Lisa Lutz (similar to Janet Evanovich)
Other Fiction
  • Greetings from Somewhere Else - Monica McInerney (LOVE all her books!)
  • The Help - Kathryn Stockett
All of these I highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.
