Looking back on this list makes me smile. While there weren't too many books I read this year that I can envision being classics one day, I did have a lot of fun with my reading. This past year for me was the year of the Twilight series, Pretty Little Liars, Memory Keeper's Daughter, Amy Sedaris, Marilyn Manson, Jane Green, weddings, and Stargirl. It's been pretty eclectic and all enjoyable. I hope next year brings me more great finds.

I hope you all have a great New Year's Eve and a fantastic 2009!
