Favorite Books of 2009 (So Far)

(inspired by[info]robinellen)


One of my 30×30 goals is to read 100 books this year. I’m well on my way—Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink is book 55. (And I’m really, really enjoying it, btw.) I’ve read almost exclusively YA, focusing on newish releases, and I feel like it’s given me a good sense of the market and of my own taste. As the year goes on, I find myself reading more and more analytically and critically and learning so much.


These are my favorite books so far:
