Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Books that I've Read This Year...So Far

I couldn't resist this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish: Top Ten Books that You've Read So Far This Year.

Fortunately, the MilkA Tale for the Time BeingThe Good Lord Bird

Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman - Fun for the whole family. In fact, it is my kids' enthusiasm for this book that made it impossible not to include it on the list.
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
The Good Lord Bird by James McBride

LexiconFlight BehaviorThe Diving Bell and the Butterfly

Lexicon by Max Barry
Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver - Favorite audio so far this year
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby

Dept. of SpeculationThe Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar WaoThe Dog Stars

Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill - Look for review later this week
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
The Dog Stars by Peter Heller

And my favorite book of the year so far:

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie


  1. Oh, I keep seeing that Sherman Alexie book everywhere now... I really have to read it! Loved Oscar Wao. I've been hearing a lot of good things about A Tale for the Time Being. Terrific list!

  2. I liked the Alexie book. I haven't read the rest -- but several are on my list! Looks like you're having a great reading year!

  3. Wasn't the Alexie the best? I just loved the main character.

  4. Such a fun topic! I'm not even ready to think of my favorites so far this year, although I can probably think of three or four titles off the top of my head if I really wanted to.

    You've come up with a great list. I really liked The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian when I read it. The only other book you've mentioned that I have read is The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, which I remember liking as well.

  5. Great choices! I loved the audio version of This is How You Lose Her (read by the author) and have been meaning to pick up Oscar Wao ever since.
