Weekly Geek - 2008 favorites so far

Well, I'm actually more of an occasional geek. But I try! I thought this week's "assignment" was fun, since it's always good to go back and take stock of what I've been reading. This week we are to compile a list of our favorite books we've read that were published in 2008 (and leave a link on the site). And for those who read lots of new books, we are to limit our lists to 10 books. Dewey's ambition here is for all the Weekly Geeks to vote and eventually come up with a top ten books of the year list. That sounds like fun!

Here is my list (in no particular order):

1. House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones
2. Savvy by Ingrid Law
3. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
4. Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
5. Blood Noir by Laurell Hamilton
6. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
7. Embrace the Night by Karen Chance
8. Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs
9. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
10. My Bonny Light Horseman by L.A. Meyer

I haven't read all that many books from 2008, but these are my favorites of the ones I have read. I am about halfway into Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book and have a pretty strong feeling it's going up on that list, too! I will update for the next few weeks, as Dewey suggests. I look forward to checking out everyone else's lists, now that I've finally had a moment to put mine together.

  2. I haven't read most of the books other people have posted, either - it makes me feel like a reading slacker! :-)

  4. I'll be curious to hear what you think of them if you do! I'd say, judging from your blog reviews, you'd probably enjoy The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks.

  5. I bet House of Many Ways will be added to my list once I read it!

    And I'm really looking forward to your review of The Graveyard Book :)
