Books Read in 2009

Yes, I know it is almost the end of 2010, but I wanted to backtrack to all of the books I read last year. At the time, it seemed like a lot (42), but compared to how many books I've read so far this year (74), it is not that impressive. Since I just started Actin' Up with books in July 2010, I don't have any reviews posted for these book, but I hope to revisit them at some point and share my thoughts.

The date listed is when I finished the book.

30: Does This Book Make Me Look Fat? ed. by Marissa Walsh

14 of today's most popular and critically acclaimed YA authors weigh in on the topic of body image. How often do you find yourself looking in the mirror? And smiling at what your see? More likely, you're thinking what you see is: Fat, Ugly, Skinny, Round, Stacked or Flat, Bad or Good. From reality television to tabloid headlines, we're all surrounded by weight and discussions of weight. In this collection, a stellar lineup of YA writers sound off on body image, self-esteem, diets, eating disorders, boys, fashion magazines, and why trying on jeans is a bad experience for everyone.
