Top Reads of 2009

This year, I have conquered last year's number of books read last year! And throughout the year, I reviewed almost all of them. So, I thought to let you all in on the ones that have stuck in my mind this year as my top reads. This list is in no particular order, here they are!

1. 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' by Oscar Wilde.
2. 'I Am Legend' by Richard Matheson
3. 'I Know Why The Cage Bird Sings' by Maya Angelou
4. 'The Uncommon Reader' by Alan Bennett
5. 'A Life in Time & Space: The David Tennant Biography' by Nigel Goodall
6. 'Watchmen' by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons
7. 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' by Stephen Chbosky
8. 'Blood Music' by Greg Bear
9. 'The Wave' by Todd Strasser
10.'Tuesdays With Morrie' by Mitch Albom

There you have it. My list of favourites out of twenty-seven books I've read this year. I'm currently reading 'Make Lemonade' by Virginia Euwer Wolff; and it's pretty good so far. I may yet add it to next year's list when I get going on 2010's Reading List. Otherwise, Happy Reading over the Holiday period.


  1. I read "I know why the caged bird sings." Very powerful! I wish you a great New Year!

    Happy Reading!

  2. A wide ranging list. Love it! Reminds me to read Dorian Gray again.

  3. I've been wanting to read 'I Am Legend' since I saw the movie, because I loved the movie, and the book version is ALWAYS better!

    I'm a new follower to your blog, I found it on Book Blogs.

  4. Welcome to my blog Aye.Me? Thanks for the comment; however I'll have to wait until I return from my holidays to have a look at your blog as the Wi-Fi where I am isn't very good.

    I'll be home in a few days and back to reviewing before the end of the week, guys! And have I got books to review!
