My goal for starting this blog in January was to keep a running tally of the books I read for the year with a review. Every year it is my intention to read a book a week, but I never quite make it and I thought the blog would keep me honest. I decided to count my books so far for the year and I’ve already read 59! I can’t believe it. This blog has been a great motivator.
As I looked through my list I picked my five favorites so far this year. On Writing by Stephen King is my favorite this year, hands down. I also really liked Four Seasons in Rome by Anthony Doerr, Fear & Trembling by Amelie Nothomb, Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore, and The Bone Collector by Jeffrey Deaver.
Anyone else have a favorite for the year so far?
