Best Books I Read in 2009

I’m a little late to the party…here are my top ten favorite books read in 2009:

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

2. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

3. Morbid Curiosity Cures The Blues edited by Loren Rhoads

4. Dope by Sara Gran

5. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

6. Starkweather Dreams by Christopher Conlon (This is really a poetry collection but I loved it so much I’m including it here anyway.)

7. The Darkness by Jason Pinter

8. Ghostwriter by Travis Thrasher

9. Audrey’s Door by Sarah Langan

10. The Deep Blue Good-by by John D. MacDonald

My record keeping got sloppy toward the end of the year but I know I read at least 50 novels, 10 short fiction anthologies, 5 poetry collections and 5 non-fiction books related to the craft of writing. This was an improvement from 2008. Here’s hoping I can keep up that pace in 2010.
