Best books of 2009 — of the ones I read anyway

Okay, so I was going to do this whole post about the best kid’s books I read this year, but while I was going through my list on goodreads, I started to get confused about my star rating system. Then I thought, hmm…which books would I actually recommend as something worthwhile to read (five-star or not?). Here’s they are, sorted by author’s last name (note–these are not necessarily NEW books, just books I read this year):My Favorite Books This Year
