Top Books of 2009

This has been a WONDERFUL year for me (much better than 2008), and I'm anxious to see what 2010 brings.
By the way, I've decided on "twenty-ten," over the more cumbersome "two-thousand-ten." How about you?

I'm wondering a couple of things about my f-list. So tell me a couple of things:

One really great thing that happened to you this year and
Two great books you read in 2009!

As for me, the arrival of The Littlest Prince tops my list as the greatest thing that happened to/for me this year. There really isn't anything better than a warm baby snuggled into your neck, or listening to baby giggles. Life is good here at the Prince homestead.

As for the two greateset books I read in 2009:

I'm tempted to name the ones that I've read repeatedly from early inception, like Soul Enchilada and Scones and Sensibility, but that would probably be "cheating." So, I'm going to name a couple of others instead:

Also Known as Harper by Ann Haywood Leal, which is probably considered a "quiet" middle grade but has stuck with me all year long
Waiting for Winter by  Sebastian Meschenmoser, a picture book with such striking illustrations, they cannot be ignored.

Now, don't get me wrong, those are just two great books that were released in 2009. I also read a few books for the first time this year, which were released awhile back, but that I love, love, loved:

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Alexie Sherman

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Anyway, that wraps up this year for me. Tell me about you!
