So this week's topic is to come up with a best books released in 2008 list. so far i've read 82 books, 26 were nonfiction and 64 were from the library. Of those though, only perhaps a dozen (maybe less) were from this year. Here are the 5 best, with the score I gave them at the time. I had another couple of 6's but didn't feel they were as good as the three 6's here.
In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan-7, non-fic
Duma Key by Stephen King-7
The Dracula Dossier by James Reese-6, though i don't know if it counts as it isn't out yet!
Bonk by Mary Roach-6, nonfic
Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith-6
