Weekly Geeks is compiling it's "Top Ten Books of 2009" list and I think I'll toss in my two cents. I'm not really waiting on any books due out in December so I think I can safely say that I can make-up my list.
The WG staff will compile a master list to vote from after December 4; if you'd like to participate in the Top Ten list-making go to the sign-up page, read the instructions, make your list, and submit it to Mr. Linky.
Happy Thinking! Here are my Top Ten books of 2009 (I guess they're sort-of in order):
- The Children's Book by AS Byatt (literary fiction)
- The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson (crime/thriller)
- The Best American Essays 2009 edited by Mary Oliver (essay)
- Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (literary fiction)
- Drood by Dan Simmons (fiction)
- Under This Unbroken Sky by Shandi Mitchell (fiction)
- The Big Rewind by Nathan Rabin (biography)
- Mistress of the Monarchy by Alison Weir (history)
- Ophelia Joined the Group Maidens Who Don't Float by Sarah Schmelling (humor)
- Beowulf on the Beach by Jack Murnighan (lit crit/theory)
