Some were books to be reviewed, some were stumbled upon at the library, some were glaring at my from the stacks in my library and I finally melted under the pressure. These are my favorite reads of the year.
I read a lot. All the time, really. A few years ago I finally learned to allow myself to stop reading books that I wasn’t enjoying and move on to another title. The end of the year is an arbitrary marker but it’s as good a time as any to look back and review the pages I’ve read. Here are eight books I enjoyed reading this year.
