Favorite Novels of 2008

Between my reading for the 52 Books, 52 Weeks and Book Notes series, I was exposed to a wealth of new fiction this year, and my shortlist of outstanding novels numbered over 30. These are the novels that I read this year and impressed me the most.

All links go to either my short reviews in the Book Notes series or to the Amazon page if the book hasn't been featured (yet) at Largehearted Boy.
