Booklist from 2009

I've been asked to make some recommendations from my reading last year - rather subjective really, it's all a matter of taste after all.
Anyhow, here is my list from 2009 in the order in which I read them. A great range of stirring, provocative writing through to some absolute tat. Unfortunately, I had to read them all, counting it something of a betrayal to give up on a book once started. For that of course (& most of my other hang up's) I blame my mother.
