My 3000th Blog Post = My 21st Annual Recommended Reading List!

Every year since 1993, I’ve compiled a list of favorite books read during the year. What started as an insert to my holiday cards evolved into this blog, and over two decades later, the tradition continues.

In putting together this year’s list, I’ve noticed that it’s very heavy in very recent releases (five titles from 2012 alone) and marks the first time I’ve had husband and wife writers make the list (Geraldine Brooks and one of my favorite authors, Tony Horwitz.)

So here, in no particular order, I am pleased to present my twenty-first annual recommended reading list. Happy reading!

Click on the book title to see my review.

(Every year, I swear I’m going to write the book review shortly after reading the book and thereby avoid the end-of-year crunch of writing reviews. Obviously, I failed at that once again and rather than delay sending out my holiday cards, I decided to post the list here and fill it in as I go in the coming weeks. As full reviews are posted to the blog, I’ll update this list with links to each review.)

  1. WOW. You are awesome. AH! I’m so happy you loved Absolutely True Diary. I introduced this one to my students last year and they loved it.
