Booking Through Thursday: Year’s Favorites

Here is this week’s Booking Through Thursday:

What were your favorite books of the year? (Books that were new to you in 2009, if not necessarily published this year.)

Well, I was going to do a Top 10, but it turns out I’ve read 13 books that I really liked this year, so here is my Top 13 list — though not in the order read, or in any other order.
