Farewell to the Reading List (and my favorite books of 2009)

As 2009 draws to a close, I am happy to say that I met my goal of taking time to read good books. I read 45 of them, to be exact! A year ago in January 2009 I launched Nurture Mama’s Reading List as a way of making me accountable for what I read. Over the year I have shared the books I read, my gospel study notes, Caldecott books (another goal, I’m still working on that one), and our family scripture of the week.

As 2010 begins I have decided to close the door on Nurture Mama’s Reading List. Don’t worry–I still plan to read, and I still plan to share it with you, but I’m going to simplify things and just do all of my blogging in this one blog. I’ll still keep the Reading List online for reference, but I won’t be posting to it anymore. I also won’t be doing a Recently Read post for every book I read, just the really really great books that I want to share. You can check out my goodreads list on the right side bar to keep up with all of my books if you’re interested.

If you’re looking for something good to read, the books below were my favorites in 2009.

Best Fiction

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (and the rest of the Percy Jackson series)

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Best Non-Fiction
Nurture Shock by Po Bronson & Ashley Merryman

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

Happy Reading in 2010!
