The Better to Hold You - Alisa Sheckley

Did Not Finish

Seduced By Shadows - Jessa Slade


So there they are - all 141 of them. :)

I have a few that stand out in my mind - for different reasons - and here they are:

Lover Avenged by J R Ward - cause ewww, creepy half sister sex.

The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - cause WoW, that is just brutal.

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon - cause WTH, such a letdown after that long wait.

Soulless by Gail Carriger - cause a mannerly werewolf is just too funny.

Shadowfae by Erica Hayes - cause it really didn't live up to all the hype.

The Better to Hold You by Alisa Sheckley - cause it is the worst book I've ever read.

How bout you? What books did you like best/worst in 2009?
