Peeking Between the Pages (Favorite Books of 2009)

Gosh it’s hard to pick favorites out of over 100 books. You’d think it would be easier but it’s not especially if you’ve enjoyed a lot of the books you’ve read. I tried to narrow it down but didn’t do the best job as you will see (for a few authors I listed both of their books-lol)…

Favorites (in no particular order):

1. The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister
2. Galway Bay by Mary Pat Kelly
3. The Traitor’s Wife and Hugh & Bess by Susan Higginbotham
4. Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler
5. The Laws of Harmony by Judith Ryan Hendricks
6. The Painter from Shanghai by Jennifer Cody Epstein
7. Holly’s Inbox by Holly Denham (Bill Surie)
8. Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross
9. Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran
10. The Kingmaking and Pendragon’s Banner by Helen Hollick

Favorite authors this year (in no particular order):

* Michelle Moran
* Laurie Viera Rigler
* Karen White
* Susan Higginbotham
* Helen Hollick

New to me authors that I’ll be reading more from:

* Lloyd Lofthouse
* Sandra Gulland
* Jennie Nash
* Nicole Baart
* Julie Buxbaum

And I could probably go on and on but I’ll stop here. I’ve had a great year of reading and was lucky enough to read many fantastic books. I’m looking forward to the same in 2010!
