My Favorite Books of 2009

OK this title could be misleading because most of the books I read in 2009 have been published for years but none the less they affected me in 2009 one way or another.

Click on the links to read my reviews of the books.

The Blind Assassin

Such a complex book!

His Dark Materials

Surprisingly very Philosophical for a childrens book.

A Fine Balance

A very good book. I couldn’t put it down. Depressing though but not in a “I want to kill myself” way

Murder in the Name of Honour

I hope this will be the first book of many for Rana.

To Kill a Mocking Bird

Oh how I loved this book. I loved it sooooo much. If you will pick just one book from this list to read pick this one!

The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas

This is such a sad sad book. What a sad story. Amazing though. Honestly it breaks your heart.

Go read something, it makes you love you more.



PS:  Shut up. Yes I am still doing 2009 favorites.  I think it’ll be 2011 before I finish but I WILL POST THEM DAMMIT!

  1. Thanks for the ideas. I haven’t read any of them (how funny is that?) Maybe I’ll do a 2009 post in another month just to make you feel better, teehee. After all, I never even started.

  2. To Kill A Mockingbird
    “Oh how I loved this book. I loved it sooooo much. If you will pick just one book from this list to read pick this one” i second that, i finished the book tow days ago and i am still amazed about how wondeful and awesome that book is, harper lee deserved her Pulitzer Prize

  3. MommaBean: HAHAHAHA . Well I never posted my any year favorites before but I thought I am going to do it this year no matter what!
    You havn’t read to kill a mocking bird? I am surprised. You would love it. Lots of great family value stuff and equality and …. just great stuff.

    Ahmad: Oh wow you just read it! It’s a great book isn’t it? I read the audio version of it too and watched the movie. LOVED IT EVEN MORE.

  4. didn’t you say “goodbye forever” or sth like that on yr previous post? and now you ask us to shut up!!? what’s going on 7aki?! :p

    I watched ” The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas”, should I still read the book?

    I also watched “the lovely bones” and The book is on my queue, have you seen/read it?

    so bi ma innik fahmaneh bi hai il mawadee3, what do you think of the “watching then reading” process? :))

  5. His Dark Materials is one of the most brilliant books I’ve ever read, it is constantly crossing my mind, years after I finished the books.

  6. nido: Hehehehehe. You have to read the book ” The Boy in The Striped Pajamas”. I listened to it via audio book and it was amazing. Check if your public library has the audio book.
    I like to read first then watch because film directors always change the book. But that’s me.

    Goodbye forever.

    Roba: How far back did you read it? You should re-read it again as an adult because you will think of it differently most probably.

  7. ‘to kill a mocking bird’ that was around 15 years ago at school, spellbinding!

    read The Shadow of the Wind (Zafon)??? who knows it might still make it to your 09 books list ;)))

  8. I’ve read that actually, as part of the book club, I really enjoyed it. I reviewd it in the book club tab up there

  9. cool!
    i saw you are currently reading the time travellers wife, someone gave just gave to me a couple of days ago, is it good?

  10. It’s really good, I recommend you read it.
