The Book Connection's Top 10 Favorite Books of 2009

The Book Connection and The Children's and Teens' Book Connection collectively read over 100 books last year; not too bad considering the crazy year I had with work and family life.

And although choosing only 10 favorites of 2009 is going to be very tough, here's the list from Number 10 to Number 1. I'll post a separate list at The Children's and Teen's Book Connection for my favorites in kid's books.

Feel free to share some of your favorites too!

Besides these great books, I have to say I really enjoyed Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper. I'm a sucker for pet memoirs.

Great job - sounds like a lot of interesting books. I know picking ten is difficult but sounds like you have had a great year. Will look into some of these books later in the year to read since I'm so behind on my own reviews and all - E :)

Cheryl, thank you so much for including One Holy Night! I'm honored to see it on your list as well as Kathi's My Son, John. I must say I'm going to have to make room on my TBR pile for several of the other books on the list. Looks like some great reading!
