2009 Reading Roundup

After finishing every book, I faithfully record it in a Google Docs Spreadsheet - and boy, am I glad I do! I pulled up my 2009 Books and happily reflected, month by month, on another great year of reading. I gave 11 fictional books five-star ratings in 2009, and of those, I would choose the following as my favorites:

1) The Help by Kathryn Stockett
2) The Girls by Lori Lansens
3) Affinity by Sarah Waters
4) Homer and Langley by E.L. Doctorow
5) Out Stealing Horses by Per Pettersen

Here are the rest of my five-star books:
Sorry by Gail Jones
The Hiding Place by Trezza Azzopardi
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
So Brave, Young and Handsome by Leif Enger

While I usually finish 75+ books a year, 2009 was much busier, not allowing me to read as much. I finished 61 books (still not too shabby). And after reflecting over my 2009 books, I am definitely pleased with the quality of books I've read.

I wish each of you a wonderful 2010 full of love, happiness, good health and lots of quality reading!
