It's Here!

Yep, it's here.  What?  The New York Times' list of Notable Books for 2013, of course!  When I read My Education by Susan Choi, I promised that if Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld made the Notables list, and My Education did not, I wouldn't link you to the list.  Fear not - neither book made the list.  So HERE is your link.  In fact, none of the books published in 2013 that I have read made the list, which was sort of a surprise.

On the other hand, just about every book on my TBR list made it:  The Circle by Dave Eggers; The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt; The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer; and Manson by Jeff Guinn all are listed.  MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood hasn't made my TBR list yet, but it most likely will after I finish the second book in the Oryx and Crake series, The Year of the Flood.  Also, I managed to pick up We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo at a used book sale, which also is a notable.  Looks like I will have lots of good books to blog about in 2014!

Usually after I see the Notables list, I add a ton of books to my TBR list.  Not so much this year.  The only one that I am adding is Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.

And now that I have the list, let the holidays begin!  Happy Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Black Friday everyone! 

Still Reading:  Upload by Mark McClelland

Almost Done Listening to:  The Iliad by Homer


  1. Some of my favorites from this year (The Goldfinch, The Interestings) and a few I'm still looking forward to reading! I just finished Life After Life and I'd definitely add it to your list.

  2. Read Life After Life. I wouldn't trust any book list from this year that didn't include it.

    1. Definitely looking forward to it! Thanks!
