Tops of 2008: Weekly Geeks 19 and 20

I missed the Weekly Geeks last week, but seeing as its so very closely intertwined with this week's "assignment" I figured it couldn't hurt to just lump them together. Last week, Dewey asked the Weekly Geeks to come up with lists of our favorite books published in 2008. Here's my list (and yes, it is in a particular order) with links to my reviews.

1. Tears of the Desert by Halima Bashir
2. Ellington Boulevard by Adam Langer
3. The Cactus Eaters by Dan White
4. Queen of the Road by Doreen Orion
5. The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

So, that's mine. How about yours? That's right, Weekly Geeks #20 encourages us to encourage our readers, even those who aren't Weekly Geeks (oh, the horror!) to make their own lists of their favorite books from among those published this year. Should you do so, you'll make the ultimate goal, a list of the book blogosphere's top books of 2008 an even better representation of our collective opinions. So, please, make a list of your own and post it on your blog. When you do, leave the URL on the Mr. Linky for Week 19 and let your book bloggerly voice be heard, not to mention, be entered in another one of those spiffy Hachette box of books giveaways that Dewey always seems to have going on. Of course, you can (and probably should!) visit the post for all the finer details. Oh, and if you happened to actually hear about this for the first time here (what, you live in a cave? Cool!) and choose to make a list, please do let Dewey know that I sent you so I'll get more book blogging street cred another entry in the spiffy giveaway.
