The Best Book for this period is Transcription by Kate Atkinson!
Highly recommended: Solace by Brenda McKeon
Starting with my 1300th review, I decided to do my Best Book series differently. Because I have gone to three postings a week, the Best of Five post came roughly every other week. Now, I plan to do this post every ten books instead, permitting me to post a few more reviews in the same period of time. So, this post will appear roughly once a month but may mention more books.
The Best Book for this period is Crow Lake by Mary Lawson!
Since it is my blog anniversary today, I follow my tradition of posting my top ten books that I reviewed during the previous year. This year was a difficult one, because I had three books by Dorothy Whipple appearing in my Best of Five series, and my rule is to select only one book by an author in my year’s top ten.
As usual, this is a mixed bag of books, combining one nonfiction and one short story collection with several classic books and only one contemporary one (if you don’t count multigenerational sagas). Historical novels feature quite heavily this year.
So, with no further ado except a comment that this year I decided to list them in backwards order from when they were posted, here are my top ten books for this year:
