Weekly Geeks #19 and 20

Okay, I've been away from WG for a while, but now I'm back for a challenge to find the best books published in 2008. I didn't think I'd read that many newly-published books this year, but apparently I did read some.

Here's my top 10 (so far, I might read something else by the deadline of October 25):

1. Mudbound by Hillary Jordan

2. The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square by Rosina Lippi

3. Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch

4. Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella

5. Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews

6. The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen

7. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows

8. Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

9. Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

10. Mermaids in the Basement by Michael Lee West

Now, for WG #20 - everyone in the book blogosphere is invited to make lists to help find the Best of 2008! So please visit Weekly Geeks #19 for the details and to post your list on Mr. Linky. It can even be just one new book that you've loved. Plus, Dewey's doing a draw for a box of 11 books out of people who've signed up with their lists - bonus!

Mudbound is one my wish list and I have loved absolutely everything I've read by Sarah Dessen, so far. You already know we have two favorites in common (thanks for dropping by!). Obviously, you have excellent taste. LOL

great list.
I'm writing down these titles, because I bet I'll like them too.

Bookfool - LOL! Why, thank you. I return the compliment! Mudbound is amazing and I always love Sarah D. too.

Raidergirl - Thanks! I bet you probably would like at least most of 'em. I'm going to check out some of yours, too.

Excellent list! I've only read two (Suite Scarlett and Lock and Key). I think I might just have to check out Remember Me since you and my sister enjoyed it. :)
Oh, and definitely read Living Dead Girl. It is ah-mazing!
