Halfway through the year and I have 11 favorite books published this year. It’s simply been a great year for books. Or at least for books that I like and can enthusiastically recommend to readers. Here the list of My favorite books of 2013 (so far) in my library’s catalog, with the books in no particular order, but still looking all pretty and official (shiny book covers and it being in a library catalog and all).
Here’s the list as a list, with some order to it. By age group and then alphabetical:
Seven general fiction:
Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler
Truth in Advertising by John Kenney
The View from Penthouse B by Elinor Lipman
Tenth of December by George Saunders
We Live in Water by Jess Walter
The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
I truly do love nonfiction, but this first half of the year was solidly fiction.
