The Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Novels of 2009

Barnes & Noble has named their Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Novels of 2009. The list includes thirteen books in all, with Lamentation by Ken Scholes topping the list.

Of the thirteen books listed, I've read only one (Boneshaker, which I also reviewed). There are, however, a number of them that look interesting and that I'll likely add to my reading (and review) list for 2010.

Here are the books in order:

  1. Lamentation (Psalms of Isaak Series #1) by Ken Scholes
  2. The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
  3. Boneshaker by Cherie Priest [read my review]
  4. Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
  5. Canticle (Psalms of Isaak Series #2) by Ken Scholes
  6. Makers by Cory Doctorow
  7. The Ghost King (Transitions Series #3) by R.A. Salvatore
  8. The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart by Jesse Bullington
  9. The Temporal Void by Peter F. Hamilton
  10. Watermind by M.M. Buckner
  11. The Suicide Collectors by David Oppegaard
  12. The Unincorporated Man by Dani and Eytan Kollin
  13. Ice Song by Kirsten Imani Kasai

    Same here. I'd heard of a lot of them, but only read Boneshaker so far. Figured this was a good way to find a book or two to add to next year's reading list, though. As if the list is not already long enough...
