Top Books of 2008!...

Here it is, the long-awaited list of Robin's favorite books from 2008 (hehe). I read ~170 books (approximate because I don't always put them down -- I'm a little scattered). I guess that should say 'at least' 170 books read in 2008. Of those 170 books, five of my five-star ratings fell into the category of reread, so I won't put them on the list (though I will make a list for just those).

Here they are, in alphabetical order (by title), my Top 16, Five-Star reads of 2008 (which means I read them thoroughly, loved them, and will read them again):

AFTER, Prose
COVER OF NIGHT, Howard (adult)
ELSEWHERE, Zevin
GRACELING, Cashore
GRAND & HUMBLE, Hartinger
HUNGER GAMES, Collins
LOVE, SARA, Lundgren
MEMOIRS OF A TEENAGE AMNESIAC, Zevin
ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE, Frost (adult - frost_light)
SHIFT, Bradbury
SQUAD (both books), Barnes (jenlyn_b)
THE COMPOUND, Bodeen (latteya)
THE SECRET LIFE OF SPARROW DELANEY, Harper
VIBES, Ryan
WAKE, McMann
WALKING ON GLASS, Fullerton (almafullerton)

The Four+-Star Honorable Mentions:

FAR FROM YOU, Schroeder (lisa_schroeder)
GONE, Grant
LAMENT, Stiefvater (m_stiefvater)
QUAD, Watson

And the Four-Star Middle Grades (which is the same as Five-Star YAs in Robin's world):

CROOKED KIND OF PERFECT, Urban (lurban)
MAGIC THIEF, Prineas (sarah_prineas)
SAVVY, Law

In case you're interested, the Five-Star rereads:

HARRY POTTER AND (THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, THE GOBLET OF FIRE, THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE, THE DEATHLY HALLOWS), Rowling
EAT CAKE, Ray
WILDFIRE AT MIDNIGHT, Stewart
TOUCH NOT THE CAT, Stewart
PROTECTOR OF THE SMALL, Pierce
NIGHTFALL, Aiken
