We asked our favorite Atlanta writers and readers to tell us their favorite books of 2009. Amanda Gable is the author of The Confederate General Rides North.

My favorite books of 2009 (in no particular order) were Invisible Sisters: A Memoir by Jessica Handler, Bound South: A Novel by Susan Rebecca White, The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon (non-fiction) by David Grann, A History of Nursing: Poetry by Anne Webster, When It Happens to You: Poetry by Alice Teeter, A Slave No More: Two Men Who Escaped Freedom, Including Their Own Narratives of Emancipation edited by David W. Blight, and The Man Who Loved Books Too Much: The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession by Allison Hoover Bartlett.

I also have several books of 2009 stacked up that I’m eager to get to in 2010: Valeria’s Last Stand: A Novel by Marc Fitten, The Cracker Queen: A Memoir of a Jagged, Joyful Life by Lauretta Hannon, Gone From These Woods (fiction for young readers, 9-12) by Donny Seagraves, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: A Novel by Jamie Ford, Devil’s Dream; A Novel by Madison Smartt Bell, and Sam Richard’s Civil War Diary: A Chronicle of the Atlanta Home Front edited by Wendy Hamand Venet.
