WG #19: Favorite Books of 2008

The year is only three-fourths over, so this list will likely grow/change by the end of the year, but Dewey wants our lists now so here's mine (with links to my reviews):

Picture Book:
Little Hoot by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace

Middle Grade:
The Big Splash by Jack Ferraiolo
Joy of Spooking: Fiendish Deeds by PJ Bracegirdle

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks by E. Lockhart
Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman

No One You Know by Michelle Richmond
Tomato Girl by Jayne Pupek

What are your favorites published this year?

Oh, Tomato Girl and No One You Know are on my wish lists. I want to read them so much and that's one reason I don't like making this kind of list before the end of the year. I may luck out and get copies of them (and others I want to read) and my list could completely change.

I JUST finished the Hunger Games. Oh my gosh, it was so amazing-I had to add it to out best books list, too.

I liked The Disreputable History and Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty, too.

I haven't read any of these, but I've got The Hunger Games pretty high on my wishlist.

I think Hunger Games may be my number 1. It is THAT good!

I am really looking forward to Hunger Games. I've seen many great reviews of it, but a few people have told me it seems to be overly similar to the Battle Royale series.

The Tomato Girl is on my list! I've heard great things about that book.
