WG Book Bloggers Top 10 of 2009 Results

In loving memory to Dewey, a book blogger who made a HUGE impact on the blogging community, especially all book review blogs, welcome to the results for the Weekly Geeks Book Bloggers Top 10 of 2009.

For two weeks, Weekly Geekers nominated their top 10 books that were published in 2009.  Then, we invited readers from all over to  converge on the voting booth to cast their books for their favorite novel.  There were 15 different categories with a total of 2216 votes cast.  Holy cow.  That was a lot close to 1000 more than last year.

So, without further ado, I give you the top 3 picks from each category:

Childrens Middle Grade / Contemporary Literature / Fantasy Science Fiction / Urban Fantasy / Graphic Novel / Historical Fiction / Memoir / Mystery / Mystery Thriller / Nonfiction / Romance / Short Story Collections / Women’s Literature / Young Adult / Young Adult: Fantasy

About Jackie 3273 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
