Weekly Geeks #19

Spread the love

This week we are supposed to compile a list of the Best Books Published in 2008. Two years ago I wouldn’t have been able to participate because I NEVER read books that just came out. Now that I do lots of review books though, I have lots to choose from.

I’m not sure I understand why this is being done so early, especially since there are SO many other books published this year I haven’t gotten to reading yet. But here goes. Turns out I rated 16 books five stars and 2 books four 1/2 stars so far, just counting those published in 2008.

Here are my top 10:


Love As a Way of Life by Gary Chapman
Have You Found Her by Janice Erlbaum

Adult Fiction
Death of a Six-Foot Teddy Bear by Sharon Dunn

YA Fiction
Pact of the Wolves by Nina Blazon

Swimming in the Monsoon Sea by Shyam Selvadurai

My Friend Jamal by Anna McQuinn
Mattland by Hazel Hutchins and Gail Herbert
