Favorite Books of 2008

I just love reading everyone's best-of-2008 lists and enjoyed posting my favorites last year, so I wanted to continue the tradition. I read over 200 books this year, definitely the most books that I've read in one year in a long time. This year, I want to read 200 more.

Em's Fav Teen Books of 2008 (in no particular order)
The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher
Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
How Not To Be Popular by Jennifer Ziegler
How To Be Bad by Lauren Myracle, E. Lockhart, and Maureen Johnson
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
House of Dance by Beth Kephart
Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
Looking for Alaska by John Green
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

I read so many good books this year that it was hard to narrow them down. My favorite part about blogging is talking to other bloggers about their favorite books. So many of the books I read this year were recommended to me by other bloggers. Thanks for recommending such great books and thanks for reading my blog!


  1. Wow, we do have several similarities! Not many bloggers I've come across have anywhere near the same favorites as me. :-)

  2. Wow -- I loved many of the books on your list as well!

    I really hope that I can read How to be Bad soon, because I've heard so many good things about it.


  3. I just picked up Audrey Wait from the library today and have Looking for Alaska on the TBR list. I also enjoyed Sweethearts.

  4. I loved Lock and Key, and Audrey Wait was so much fun - the best part when she broke out that classic LL Cool J rap.
    Loved John Green's Papertowns
    how could someone not love The Graveyard Book
    And House of Dance was simply beautiful.
    Sweethearts was great to, okay with the exception of Paper Towns I am basically just typing over your whole list, so I'll stop now

    And thanks for stopping by my

  5. Wow, thank you, Em. For this. Thank for all you always do. Is there anything you don't do?

    No, I don't think there is.

    :) and xo,
