2009 Reading Summary

My most boring post yet?  It's ok—this one's just for me.  For reference.  It's a list of the YA books I read in 2009, listed alphabetically by author.  It's just that sometimes I forget, and my periodic summaries of what I read aren't so easy to navigate.  I think there's 95 if I counted right. [updated a couple of times cause I remembered a few that I hadn't blogged about.]

Also: Dying to know which are my 2009 favorites from this list (listed in alphabetical order by author, not by how much I loved them)
Going Bovine, Sacred Scars, Andromeda Klein, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Marcelo in the Real World, and Leviathan!

And my favorite non-2009 book?  Knights of the Hill Country!
