Every year, one of my favorite tasks is assembling my Top 10 List, which usually (actually always) involves winnowing and eliminating – at the end of the list, there are even more titles I really enjoyed. This year I’m moving two perennials to the “Emeritus” category – Louise Penny and William Kent Krueger – they are almost always on the list so, while including the wonderful book each of them wrote this year, I’ve left room for 10 other titles as well. Happy reading!
I love remembering back over the year to the books that gave me a thrill or a delightful character or a great story or a memorable setting or gorgeous prose – or all of these. It’s always tough to winnow this list to 10 – I’ve listed other titles at the end of this list that were also great. For the month of December 2012, we offer these titles, including the extra recommendations, at 15% off. (Please contact us in order to receive the discount.) This list is alphabetical.
