Top Picks of 2008

So, I’m a bit behind on this seeing how it is now 4 days into the new year, but here are my top reads in 2008.  Not all were new to 2008, in fact one is a 1983 Newbery honor book, but this year was the first time I read them and they made an impression.  In no particular order, here they are:

  1. Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
  2. Frostbite (Vampire Academy 2) and Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy 3) by Richelle Mead
  3. The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner
  4. War of the Witches by Maite Carranza
  5. Impossible by Nancy Werlin
  6. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
  7. The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley
  8. Red Glass by Laura Resau
  9. Fact of Life #31 by Denise Vega
