BOOKING TRHOUGH THURSDAY: The Best?

It’s a week or two later than you’d expect, and it may be almost a trite question, but … what were your favorite books from 2008?
(It’s an oldie but a goodie question for a reason, after all … because, who can’t use good book suggestions from time to time?)



These are my top rated books from last year at librarything, so I liked them best, at least when I rated them! No, in retrospect, these were all great reads, for all different reasons. Enjoy!


Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson


Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella


Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer


The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


Crow Lake by Mary Lawson


Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi


Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli


The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway


Black Swan Green by David Mitchell


The Blinding Absense of Light by Ben Tahar Jalloun

I have read Crow Lake, The Book Thief and Persepolis. I loved those.

The Cellist of Sarajevo is on its way to me.

I am going to check out the other books in your list.

I just bought The Book Thief, and I love the Eyre Affaire! The 5th book in the series, Something's Rotten, made my list of best reads for this year :-) I keep picking up Persepolis and putting it back, so I think i'm getting ready to read it soon. Lovely list of your favourite reads!

I'm going to have to check out some of the books on your list. The Book Thief is on my TBR list. Some of my Favorites were "The Bonesetters Daughter," "To Kill a Mockingbird," "Miracle at Speedy Motors," & "Stop Dressing Your 6 Year Old Like a Skank."

Wishing you Great Reading in 2009!
