2009 In Review: Books

Not my most prolific year, here is what bookshelf looked like in 2009.
  • I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, Tucker Max
  • Rattled, Christine Coppa
  • Angela’s Ashes, Frank McCourt
  • It Sucked and Then I Cried, Heather Armstrong
  • When You Are Engulfed In Flames, David Sedaris
  • Belong to Me, Marisa de los Santos
  • Jesus Land, Julia Scheeres
  • Julie and Julia, Julie Powell
  • Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, Chelsea Handler
  • My Horizontal Life, Chelsea Handler
  • Loose Girl, Kerry Cohen
  • Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve Harvey
  • Zeitoun, Dave Eggers
...in addition to too many text books. My list is small and humble, but I spent half of the year in graduate school. Which I feel is a completely acceptable excuse. You heard it here first: 2010 will be better.

Favorite: Angela’s Ashes
Made me laugh the hardest: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell
Made me think the hardest:
Jesus Land
Took me longest to get through: Julie and Julia
Book that I hesitate to admit that I read: Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man
Theme of my 2009 reading list: Memoir mania

Have any suggestions for a book that I absolutely must not miss in 2010? Let me know! Other suggestions, teasing, statements of praise and disgust and other comments? I'll take those, too.

Have you read the Book of Negros (I think the American title is Someone knows my name). The sequel to Three Cups of Tea (Stones into Schools) is excellent.

I'm in the middle of Angela's Ashes right now! :)

I read Chelsea's books and I'm waiting to get my hands on some of the others from the library. Totally want to see Chelsea live, but she hasn't come to Pittsburgh yet!
