EW picks Daniyal Mueenuddin and Dave Eggers' titles as the best books of 2009: What's your fave?

Posted on

It’s that time again: As 2009 draws to a close, we’ve been given the formidable task of culling the finest literature from the year. As always, it was tough picking out the best from a bevy of books published in the last 12 months. But who won? In the fiction category, it was Daniyal Mueenuddin’s collection of short stories, In Other Rooms, Other Wonders. As for nonfiction, the always reliable Dave Eggers topped the list with his Hurricane Katrina-centric book, Zeitoun. (For EW’s complete list of the top 10 fiction and nonfiction titles of the year, pick up a copy of our year-end Best & Worst double issue, on newsstands now.)

But that’s just EW’s opinion, Shelf Lifers. Tell us, which books top your 2009 list?
