My Best (And Worst) Books of 2010…So Far
I’m up to my eyeballs reading my own stuff to edit right now, so I haven’t had time for real blog entries, just the occasional shameless plug. Anyway, here are the best books I’ve read in 2010. And by that I mean books I read in 2010, not published in 2010, though a great many of them were also from this year thanks to the Amazon Vine program. So if you’re looking for a book to buy someone (and you’ve already bought them all of mine, which are without a doubt the best books ever in existence–take that, Holy Bible!) or you’re just looking for something to read, here are my 10 best and then followed by my three worst.
The Best of the Best (In No Particular Order)
- How to Be an American Housewife Margaret Dilloway
- The Green Mile: The Complete Serial Novel Stephen King
- Possession A.S. Byatt
- Snapped Pamela Klaffke
- In the Company of Angels: A Novel Thomas E. Kennedy
- Sunset Park Paul Auster
- Post Office Charles Bukowski
- Father of the Rain Lily King
- Model Home: A Novel Eric Puchner
- Littlejohn Howard Owen
The Turkeys of 2010
- Last Night in Twisted River John Irving
- Imperial Bedrooms Bret Easton Ellis
- Stiltsville Susanna Daniel
I can probably come up with a defense for any of these upon request. And no, Freedom by Jonathan Franzen isn’t on either list because I haven’t read it yet!
That is all.
