It has been a great reading year! I have read some amazing books and also thrown a few bad ones across the room ;) However it is time for me to look back and pick out the ones that I couldn't put down and can't wait for the next in series.

I do have an overall best of 2008. There is a trilogy of books that I read this year that I can't forget about. A set of books that will be staying on my bookshelf forever. They made such an impression that I read all 3 books pratically one after the other because I couldn't get enough.

My best read this year has to go to -

The Crow Series by Jeri Smith-Ready
