The 2009 Pub Challenge


The 2009 Pub Challenge is being hosted by Michelle at

It’s a challenge to read at least nine books published for the first time in your country in 2009. The rules are here.

I have read some great new books this year and I’m looking forward to more next year as well as picking up ideas from others.

I have had a look at what’s due out next year in the UK and I can already see four books that I want to read asap:

The Girl Who Played With Fire, by Steig Larsson
(UK release 6th January 2009)

Devil’s Brood, by Sharon Penman
(UK release 5th February 2009)

The Owl Killers, by Karen Maitland
(UK release 5th February 2009)

Delicate Edible Birds: And Other Stories, by Lauren Groff
(UK release 2nd July 2009)
