I'm currently reading - AND listening to in the car - "The 19th Wife". I cannot get enough of this book, as it is utterly captivating.

Yay! I've had my eye on this book. I haven't read enough yet in 2009 to have a favorite really, but the one book I have finished, Daisy Miller, was very good!

Sounds like a good book, please enter me in this drawing. So far I've only read one book in 2009 and it's Perfume. It's an amazing read, so that would be my favourite.

Thanks

I read The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming by Lemony Snicket and found it hilarious, so I'll go with that one! Thanks for entering me!!

Megan said...

I've had my eye on this book.

I've only read one book so far this year, so I guess it's must be my favorite by default since it has no competition. It's The Longest Trip Home by John Grogan, and it was pretty good, though I'm not sure it'll still rank among my favorites once I've read a few more books this year!

Becca said...

Please enter me! Favorite book of 2009? Well, that doesn't give me a lot of choices but I guess I would go with The Virgin in the Ice by Ellis Peters. Thanks

It's a new year and I'm already getting a slow reading start. I'm really enjoying Twilight right now. So much so that everything else, as far as my TBR pile is taking a backseat.

Oh please throw my name in the hat for this one. Sounds like a wonderful story...

Lots of favorites last year but one that came to mind right now is Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.

betsytacy said...

My favorite so far is an oldie, Mrs. Time Christie by D.E. Stevenson. The diary format and humorous observations are very reminiscent of E.M. Delafield's Provincial Lady books.

betsytacy said...

Oops. That would be Mrs. Tim Christie.

Oh, I've been wanting to read this! My favorite book so far this year was probably Revolutionary Road - NOT what I was expecting.

ElleVee said...

I'm in love with the comic Nemi, which is hilarious and brilliant. But in terms of 'real' books of 2009, I'd probably have to say 'Hogfather' by Terry Pratchett.
