Top Fiction Books of the Year

Looking back I read a lot more non-fiction than fiction books this year.  I love fiction, but honestly was a bit disappointed in the fiction books I read this year.  This is my list of my favorite fiction books. (These are order of my favorite with best at the top.)

  • Supreme Courtship by Christopher Buckley — Funniest book I read this year.  Not sure why I didn’t blog about it.  Probably my favorite fiction book of the year.
  • The Magician by Michael Scott — I am cheating a bit because I am really talking about the series rather than the particular book, but this was a good young adult fantasy series.  Also The Alchemyst and The Sorceress.
  • The Tourist by Olen Steinhauer — Good spy thriller.  In the vain of the Borne books.
  • Diamond Age and Snow Crash by Neal Stevenson — Different books, but hard to pick which is better.  They are the origins of the cyber-punk style of writing.
  • 1984 by George Orwell — This is a classic.  I had never read it before.  It is both very dated and quite modern.
  • Chasing Francis by Ian Morgan Cron — Fictional story of a pastor that looses his faith and then rediscovers it by learning about St Francis.  Not a perfect book but good attempt.

Trackbacks and Pingbacks

[…] in 2009 soon after it came out but before I started reviewing books here.  I rated it as one of my top fiction books last year.  These are both spy books.  They are post 9/11 spy books, so they are not wrapped up […]
