It's That Time of the Year...

If You Could Be Mine

Yes, everyone from The New York Times to NPR is coming out with their take on "the best books of 2013" right now.

I won't promise this list is "the best," but they're all books I enjoyed this year for various reasons. Please add your own favorite 2013 reads in the comments!! I hope some of my fabulous DPL colleagues will post their own lists, too--we're a diverse group with varying interests and tastes in books.

Science Fiction & Horror:

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King--Classic King. Well-drawn characters, good vs. evil, creepy villains. And a Colorado conection!

It's That Time of Year Again...

Blood, Bones & Butter

I enjoyed doing a nontraditional favorites of the year list last year, so thought I'd compile my favorite reads of 2011, in various categories, as the year comes to a close.

Favorite Cookbook:
Martha Stewart's New Pies & Tarts: 150 Recipes for Old-Fashioned and Modern Favorites.
Everything I've done from this book so far has been wonderful. The Brie & Apple Tart will be Christmas morning breakfast at our house, and later we'll have the Rocky Road Pie!

Yet Another End of the Year List

It seems like everyone from the New York Times to NPR is coming out with Best Books of the Year lists right now. As "best" is subjective,  I instead offer you some of my favorites in various categories. Most of these are 2010 books, but are some are older books that I first read or listened to this year.

Post-Apocalyptic Fiction (no zombies): The Passage, Justin Cronin

Post-Apocalyptic Fiction (with zombies): The Reapers are the Angels, Alden Bell, Feed, Mira Grant
