Wikipedia says it was published in 2006 and it also got an award in 2007. The American edition might have been published in 2009.


message 3: by Juanma (new)

Juanma Roca Blanco La mejor novela que he leído en los últimos años. Deliciosa, cautivadora y maravillosamente escrita. La autora tiene el don de poner al lector en la piel de los personajes y hacer que te involucres y enganches en una historia narrada con una magia impresionante.


message 4: by David (new)

David I want to add 'View Points and Points of View', by Clive Blake and Chris Robbins to this list, but seem to be having problems. Goodreads had a publishing date of Oct 2008 noted for this book, but this should be Feb 2009. When I pointed this out 'Heather' kindly alterred this, but now it reads published Feb 2009 (originally published in 2008). I've checked with the publishers, Emu House Publications, and they say it was published for the first time in Feb 2009, it was originally planned to be published in Oct 2008, but Christmas rush production problems meant this was resheduled for Feb 2009. Can someone please take off the '(originally published in 2008)' bit, so that I can add this book to this list.

message 6: by David (new)

David Ye, thanks Rusty, I have now posted my vote.


message 7: by Booklover (new)

Booklover I love this book! It's suspenseful and has a great ending, which I won't give away. Also, I like the fact that it's based on a true story, especially since it's set during the depression.


message 8: by Dafne (new)

Dafne i love vampire books!!!


message 9: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Wow, that is depressing. City of Glass is no.2?? I agree with The Help being the the best of this list, that one was amazing.


message 10: by Dafne (new)

Dafne Really?


message 11: by Kono (new)

Kono Grant Honestly, if you're not into vampires this has not been the greatest year for fiction. I'd say Home Repair by Liz Rosenberg is the one clear literary stand-out, and then, for surprise factor, Pride & Predjudice Zombie book was way wittier and better than I'd have dreamed. Those two make the year worthwhile-- let's hope for more good books this fall.


message 12: by Dafne (new)

Dafne No! I love vamps!!!!!!!


message 13: by Farzad (new)

Farzad hi, I love story books!!!!!!!!
PLEASE HELP ME TO FIND THEM


message 14: by Dafne (new)

Dafne look at library or bookstore or ask the internet!


message 15: by Tina (new)

Tina Starr Agree with Kono-- Home Repair made my top list for the year as well. I love the touch of humor, and yes it has a story, too, for readers like Farzad


message 16: by Bookprgirl (new)

Bookprgirl I think Gina Barreca's book "It's Not That I'm Bitter...." should be on this Best Books of 2009 list. She's smart, funny and honest. A must-have for 2009. It's Not That I'm Bitter . . . Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying About Visible Panty Lines and Conquered the World


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The form to add books is over on the right hand side of the page.


message 18: by Joe (new)

Joe Why does the best book list of 2009 not include "9 Dragons" by Michael Connolly or "The Defector" by Daniel Silva. Both excellent reads. skillfully written. Not artsy enough?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Why don't you add them? This is a collaborative list.

message 25: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Dec 17, 2009 11:42AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I guess the best thing you can do is vote for the ones you do like. Or add them if they're not already on the list - the link is over at the right side.


message 26: by David (new)

message 29: by SueAnn (new)

SueAnn sometimes a book's published date is later. You might be reading a book right now but the date is stated as 2010.



message 30: by Louise (new)

Louise If you are interested in the history of the American West, Manifest Destiny and Native Americans, then I recommend Elliot West's The Last Indian War:The Nez Perce Story. It gave me insight into the United States dealing with other cultures in the 1880's.


message 31: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Lane Really enjoyed going through your list.
I review books on amazon regularly and only heard about this site today. I'm having a great time reading the lists.
It's amazing so many books that I have read are not on these lists.
I really appreciate when people do a low rating as it is a true warning Don't waste your money.

Mary I'd like to know how to suggest books published in 2010, and when you do it.

message 38: by umberto (last edited Jan 13, 2010 07:39PM) (new)

umberto I've just received this GR Newsletter & the listopia today, it's interesting of course but, as for the first 1-100 list, I'm sorry I've not heard/read any title up there. Why don't you have a few more lists like, say, a classics list, a comtemporary classics list, a memoir list, a biography list, a history list, etc.?
Maybe I belong to another generation different from those young, elite readers worldwide.
Thanks for your time and kind consideration.


message 39: by James (new)

James Smith How about a memoirs/biography list. A great book came out in June about a grandfather that grew up on a farm in the '40's. The book is true memoirs, 35 chapters actually about life on the home front during WWII, eating traditions, clothes they wore and much more. It's titled A Grandfather's Gift it's on agrandfathersgiftonline.com It's available at all online stores.


message 40: by Ilene (new)

Ilene David I think Wally Lamb's latest book, The hour I First believed should be on this list. It is about Columbine and its aftermath as told by a survivor. We see the affects on those who survivied and how thier lives and the lives of their loved ones are affected. I love his character development and was not able to put the book down!


message 41: by Herman (new)

Herman Tok GONE OVER, by David Chacko and Alexander Kulcsar is the best historical published last year and one of the best novels period. See this review for an independent opinion. http://openlettersmonthly.com/blog/mi...


message 42: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Jan 14, 2010 11:12AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads There are a great many lists on Listopia (click All Lists at the right top of this page), and we are free to make more, on any subject that pleases us.

I am under the impression that The Hour I First Believed was first published in 2008.

Marilyn Willis I'd like to add 4 books that my book club read this year that I thought were excellent. No bad language, uplifting and no violence are our requirements.
The Wednesday Letters by Jason F Wright
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie BarrowsThe Zookeepers Wife by Diane Ackerman The Ultimate Life by Jim Stovall AND Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Just because a book came out a couple of years ago doesn't mean you can't read it now. :)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was first published in 2008.

The Wednesday Letters was first published in 2007, as was The Zookeeper's Wife and The Ultimate Life.

What kind of books does she like, Tshepo?

Jessie Carty how come there are all those categories but no poetry category?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads There seem to be a number of poetry-oriented lists. I would put "poetry" into "enter a tag" on the Listopia main page.

thanks susanna :) i have seen several poetry lists but i was surprised that the "best of" items listed in the newsletter were for a number of genres but no poetry!

Clayton Cate book:The Help|4667024] I'm a guy, actually an old guy, and maybe that helped me enjoy this book as much as I did. I was there, you see, in the deep south as a young white man, during the time frame this book is based on (the 1960s). I loved the book! I couldn't put it down. I don't think the book is an exaggeration of the conditions, and the mind set of the people, at all. It would be a mistake to believe that all the folks who were racist have had a change of heart since then. Perhaps a few did, but for the most part they just went underground.
