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 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
