2009 - A Year In Books

Total Read in 2009: 80 (Technically 88 if you count the 8 other paranormal erotica novellas I read that were part of anthologies... I didn't add them though since I didn't read the 2 novellas by other authors within the same book)

The Breakdown:

Horror - 44
Paranormal Erotica - 10
Teen Paranormal - 8
Bizarro - 4
Urban Fantasy - 3
Paranormal Romance - 3
Teen Other - 3
Paranormal Mystery - 2
Fiction - 1
Graphic Novel - 1
Poetry - 1

Top 10 Books I Read in 2009 (I have posted a somewhat different list somewhere else, but that was prior to me giving this really detailed thought and I was also not done with reading all of my end-of-year books, so... this is the official. I also didn't include books that I re-read this year that were originally posted in the previous list that was posted. It was VERY hard to choose just 10 because I read a LOT of great books this year. Reviewing for MonsterLibrarian has given me the opportunity to try out some new authors that I haven't read before and I'm finding some new treasures out there. :) Two other books that I thought of putting on this list and didn't are books that I helped edit this year, but are coming out next year so figured I'd wait and add them to next year's list as I'm SURE they will make my list when I read them after publication.) Click on the book title/author name in order to go to that book's entry and read my review for the book.
