The New York Times recently published their annual Most Notable Books of the year. I must say they chose well. 2013 has been a fantastic year for reading! Of course perusing their list resulted in too many more “to be read” titles added to my reading list.
At least half the books I read this year were actually published in 2013 (usually I tend to read more classics or older books). Here are twenty of my favorite reads of 2013, (in no particular order), most, but not all, published this year. Be sure to browse my bookshelf for short reviews of these and others.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What was your favorite read this year?
Transatlantic, by Colum McCann
This Side of Brightness, by Colum McCann
Lit, a memoir, by Mary Karr
Case Histories, by Kate Atkinson; indeed, her whole series on Jackson Brodie
The Best American Short Stories of 2012 ~ about halfway with this one now, excellent stories!
The Invisibles, by Hugh Sheehy ~ also about halfway with this one, outstanding work!
Whew, that’s a lot of links! 🙂
