This is my second year of reading Notable books but it seems I never actually wrote a specific post about it. My tally for 2008 was 33 books from the Notable lists, and these 14 books in 2009, of which I managed 3 reviews. The stars tell the story on the others.
The Madonnas of Leningrad***** by Debra Dean
The Elegance of the Hedgehog**** by Muriel Barbery
A Mercy***** by Toni Morrison
Olive Kitteridge***+ by Elizabeth Strout
Home Repair*** by Liz Rosenberg
The Little Stranger***** by Sarah Waters
Little Bee***** by Chris Cleave
The Weight of Heaven****+ by Thrity Umrigar
A Short History of Women*** by Kate Walbert
Invisible***** by Paul Auster
Lacuna***** by Barbara Kingsolver
Await Your Reply**** by Dan Chaon
The Broken Teaglass**** by Emily Arsenault
The Anthologist*** by Nicholson Baker
I'm sure I can manage a dozen in 2010. Leave a comment if you have any questions about any of these books and authors or want to know which I read in 2008. I'd be willing to write a brief review of any book if asked. Happy reading in 2010.
