2009 Year End Wrap Up

As 2009 has wrapped up, and 2010 is just beginning, it seemed like a great time to look back on all of the releases from the past year that were reviewed here at Luke Reviews.  Listed below are all of the books released for the first time in 2009 that I reviewed.  In bold are my 15 favorite books published in the past year (they may not have been the highest rated initially, but they are the ones that stuck with me most).  CHECK OUT LUKE REVIEWS TOMORROW FOR A SPECIAL FEATURE ON THE "TOP 15," ALONG WITH STATEMENTS FROM THE AUTHORS!  They are listed by genre, then by date of review.  I hope you enjoyed the past year of reading as much as I did, and that 2010 will be just as great a reading year as 2009!
