It's a bit scary really to think that we are nearly at the end of the year and it is time to start thinking about what have been the best reads of the year.
Publisher's Weekly have put their thoughts together. The list is LONG, so here is a link for you to click over to read for yourself. I am just hoping to comment on a few of the categories!
These ones are on the list to be read:
When Will There Be Good News? by Kate Atkinson - just picked this up from the library tonight
Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh - intend to read this for the Booker Challenge
The Boat by Nam Le - I have heard a lot of great things about this book, and it is a bonus that it is by an Aussie author.
Serena by Ron Rash - heard good things about this book.
Breath by Tim Winton - I really should have read more Winton. What a bad Aussie I am!
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski
There's a couple of familiar author names but I haven't read any of the books.
None of these either!
I have read Private Arrangement by Sherry Thomas. To get on this list with your debut book is such a great achievement.
The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner - Heard a few good things about this one but haven't read it yet!
Nation by Terry Pratchett - Given that it is Pratchett I will get to it eventually.
