My Top Books of 2021

Every year is a new reading adventure. This year, happily, was one of the best fiction-reading years I’ve had in a long time. I followed my heart a bit more than my head in choosing titles and ended up with some new favorites, as well as re-reading an old favorite that makes the list again […]

My Top Books of 2020

There’s a great quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson that I love: I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me. And so each year’s tally of books read make up my year as well. I’m always excited to look back and remember what […]

My Top Books of 2019

I had such a good reading year this year. It was hard to narrow my top books of 2019 into a manageable list. For as long as I can remember, my favorite part of my day has been the part when I get to curl up for an hour or so with a pile of books. […]

My Top Books of 2018

As we close out another year of reading, I find myself with a renewed appreciation and vigor for the importance and the blessing of reading. Having devoured books at the hungry pace of 100+ a year for at least fifteen years (I didn’t start keeping track until 2002), I’ve been feeling increasingly uncomfortable and even […]

My Top Books of 2017

When you’re a writer, stories are life. You can’t create them without ingesting them. That’s why Stephen King famously said: If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that. That’s why this annual look back at my top books of 2017 is always one […]

My Top Books of 2016

The one thing that’s almost as fun as looking back on the writing I accomplished during the year is looking back on reading my top books of 2016. Ironically, the one year I decide to host a “Read 100 Books in a Year” challenge on Goodreads is also the first year in recent memory when I […]

Top Books of 2014

Top Books of 2014

Every year, I find myself reading with the maniac intensity of someone who believes it might be the last reading year. (I like to turn everything into an extreme sport.) After all, what self-respecting writer doesn’t study at the feet of the masters as much as she can? I had so much fun sharing my […]

Top Books of 2013

Writers are, above all, readers. So in the tradition of all the fun Top 10 posts that fly around the Internet this time of the year, here are my top books of 2013. At any given time, I usually have a bookmark in four different books: a novel, a general non-fiction book, a writing book, […]

For a few years now, I’ve been lamenting that I wasn’t reading at the pace I was accustomed to in the past. This year, I’m happy to say… I’m baaaaaaaaaacckkk!!! :p It was a good reading year, ya’ll. I enjoyed myself thoroughly and encountered so many new authors and new ideas. Today’s post features some […]
