Best Books of 2008 (according to me!)

A lot of great books were published in 2008 and I only read a small fraction of them. But from the ones I did get to read here are 10 of my favorites.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
Madapple by Christina Meldrum

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch (adult nonfiction 158.1 P334)
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary Pearson
Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult (adult fiction)
Sweethearts by Sara Zarr

In addition to those amazing books, here are another 10 that were great, but didn’t quite make the top 10 list.

Exodus by Julie Bertagna
