Weekly Geeks 2009-43 (Top Ten of 2009)

This week's weekly geek is to list our top ten published in 2009.

Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork. (YA Realistic Fiction)
The Ask and the Answer. Patrick Ness. (YA Science Fiction)
All the Broken Pieces. Ann E. Burg. (YA Historical Fiction, YA Verse Novel)
Lips Touch Three Times. Laini Taylor. (YA Romance/YA Fantasy)
The King's Rose by Alisa M. Libby. (YA Historical Fiction/YA Romance)
The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams. (YA Realistic Fiction)
The Year The Swallows Came Early by Kathryn Fitzmaurice. (Middle Grade Realistic Fiction)
Umbrella Summer. Lisa Graff. (Middle Grade Realistic Fiction)
The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte. Syrie James. (Adult Historical Fiction)
Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty. (Adult Romance/Chick Lit)

I wanted to be a little diverse in including books for middle grade, young adult, and adult. I also wanted to make sure I covered books I read throughout the year--and not just in the past six weeks.

Lips Touch is definitely in my top 10. I need to start thinking about this. Will be HARD!

Good list. Lips Touch was in mine, too... I wonder how many others it's going to end up on?

I put Marcelo on mine, too! And I'm reading The Ask and the Answer right now. Great list.

Stork is on my list. So many books and not enough time. I wish I were a speed reader but I'm not.

Mmm...Lips Touch Three Times has been on more than one list. I'll have to check that one out.

Great list. I like seeing all the childrens/middle grade books being listed this year.
