It’s that time of year: lists! So here are a few wonderful books I read in 2009.
I’m listing memorable books by authors I haven’t mentioned on the blog before. I read lots of terrific books this year by authors I’ve known and loved for ages — Sue Grafton, Michael Connelly, James Lee Burke, Tess Gerritsen, Janet Evanovich, Lee Child, Jeff Abbott, Harlan Coben — but want to single out some other writers who made me want to hide out, turn off the phone, or plead with the pilot to make the flight last longer so I wouldn’t have to interrupt my reading.
Bury Me Deep, Megan Abbott
Payback, Margaret Atwood
Cryptonomicon and Anathem, Neal Stephenson
Finch, Jeff VanderMeer
How about everybody else?
