June 10: Top ten books I’ve read so far in 2014
This was tougher than I thought! I was in a horrible slump this first half of the year, although you might not know it at first glance since I am (somehow) on pace to meet my 50 books goal this year. Work was a little tougher/busier than normal, we had a death in the family… it’s just been rough. But I have managed to read 21 books so far this year, and here are my 10 picks for best of those (in no particular order):
Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
The Hot House: Life Inside Leavenworth Prison by Pete Earley
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (audio, read by Jeremy Irons)
The Martian by Andy Weir
The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan
When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi by David Maraniss
MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood
Moloka’i by Alan Brennert
The Round House by Louise Erdrich
Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed (audio, read by author)
What are your best reads so far this year?
