what was your favorite book read in 2008?



hello everyone! happy new years, hopefully it's starting off great for you all. this is my first post and i just love this community.  i would like to reflect on 2008 one more time and i was wondering, what was your favorite book that you read in 2008?

this was mine:


the gargoyle by andrew davidson

words can't explain how much i love this book. i will say that i was tempted to buy another copy of it, just in case i lost the one i have now, but i am careful with my books so that wasn't necessary. i highly recommend it to anyone who likes an intense love story and isn't too squeamish because it has very graphic details about a burned victim and the process he has to undergo. i can't write decent summaries without giving much away, so here is the amazon review. this book is amazing in every way. there is so much beautiful imagery conveyed, the writing is deep and engaging, and it's just full of surprises. it gripped me from the beginning and left me wanting more after it's ending. i should also mention that this is andrew davidson's first novel and what a debut one it is. it's absolutely breath taking. i will definitely read it again this year. has anyone read it and if you have, did you like it?

and also, what's your reading goal for this year? i'm keeping mine reasonable and going for 50 books, but i most likely will surpass it.
