We had so much fun reading with you this year! Bet if you went back and counted all the books we read combined… well, holy moly, it would be a LOT: hundreds, thousands, bajillions (um, roughly…). Anyway, thanks for sharing all your opinions on books you loved, ones you didn’t, and sharing must-read book suggestions with other DogEared readers.
We picked one review from each of this year’s DogEared bloggers for our Top 9 of ’09 List. These are books that got you all fired up to post about or excited to read, and they were books each of the reviewers loved best.
Here is the DogEared Top 9 of ’09 (in no particular order of favorites!).
Mummies by Elizabeth Carney – ’cause we learned how to make a mummy in REAL life… not that we’re going to, but wow!
Shug by Jenny Han – just for all the funny postings about first kisses. Hee hee.
Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke – aka Hannah’s “favorite book of ALL time” also turned us on to other books by this author, Inkspell and Inkheart.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney – like getting to peek at someone’s private journal, this hilarious book had a waiting list at most of your school libraries.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling – is there any ”Best of” list that J.K. Rowling wouldn’t make? That’s what we thought. You are big, big fans.
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart – ’cause there were so many surprise twists & turns in this plot that you guys kept trying to post book spoilers in the comments of Lily’s review that we had to delete.
The Guinness World Records 2010: Book of the Decade – for its freaky pictures, crazy stunts and odd records set across the globe, this book ranks as one of the all-time faves for leaving an impression on readers.
The Fire Within by Chris D’Lacey – hard to choose a favorite review from Reed, who sets our own NG Kids record for posting the MOST reviews this past year (can you say Employee of the Year?), but this mythology series was a pretty good one.
African Critters by Robert B. Haas – ’cause we are suckers for anything about animals in the wild… we’re National Geographic, after all.
Now, check out these reviews, today is the last day to to vote in our “So You Wanna Be a DogEared Blogger” contest for your favorite NEW bloggers and KEEP READING!
Happy New Year!!
