Late last week, the New York Times presented a batch of year-end roundups. Critics Janet Maslin, Dwight Garner, and Michiko Kakutani all pick their top books of 2009. And while I certainly have my disagreements with the critics, I do find lists like this helpful for reminding me of books I might have forgotten over the year.
For example, I’m ashamed to admit that I never got around to reading Wells Tower’s Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned. It just got lost in the shuffle for me. But now that I finally have some reading time available again, I’m going to pick it up.
What about you? Feel free to voice your own favorite books of 2009.
