1. Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey
Wow. I will never complain about Twilight fans ever again. Why? Because Hearts at Stake makes that series look like fucking Carmilla. This is easily the worst vampire book in the history of vampire books and the only reason I finished it was because I had to review it for Amazon. This was hands downt he worst book I read in 2009. Burn it. BURN IT.

2. Antartica 2041: My Quest to Save the Earth’s Last Wilderness by Robert Swann
A great little book about the history of Antartica and the political and environmental stuggles it currently faces. Like all the books I read this month, this was one I had to review, but I really enjoyed this. its just too bad the ARC was so flimsy the book had fallen to pieces by the time I was done. Definitely a read for non-fiction and history fans.

3. The Raw Milk Revolution: Behind America’s Emerging Battle Over Food Rights by David E Gumpert
What a strange little topic filled with some of the craziest motherfuckers I have ever read about (on both sides). I didn’t even know there was a massive controversy about raw milk. This was a fascinating read I could barely put down and it was a train wreck from beginning to end. I also loved the links to pro and anti raw milk web sites. HILARIOUS.

4. Possessed by Kate Cann
This was a fun little young adult book. Although there isn’t any actual possession in the book, it is a fun horror story where everything that unfolds may or may not be supernatural in origin. It’s all up to the reader, I’m still surprised at how much I enjoyed this one.

Nice that it was 17,000 exact. I couldn’t have planned that. I beat my 2006 count by 850 pages. Not bad. Between this resolution and the 365 DVD reviews, my resolution for 2010 is not to make any resolutions.
