Lab Girl...Yes, I know you've seen it around, but you still haven't picked up a copy, have you? Deep down you think it's not your sort of story. You are wrong.
Letters of Note...A book of letters? Really? you say. Give it a chance. It's mesmerizing. I promise.
The Battle for Room 314...You might think I'll let you pass on this one if you aren't a teacher. Sorry, but everyone needs to read this book. It explains a lot about the abysmal lack of thoughtful discourse in the US. As well as the results of the most recent American election.
The Art of the Pie...It's easy. Really. (Easy as pie, it turns out, is true.) I dare you to find this book at your local bookseller and take a look at the cover (oh, deliciousness) or to read the brilliant intro and walk away without buying it. We need more pie.
Lonely Planet's Beautiful World...I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful book of beautiful photos from our beautiful world.
The Night Gardener...My list of wonderful books you might have missed last year would not be complete without a children's picture book. This one is a doozy.
Some Writer! The Story of E. B. White...Have to include this one. The illustrations in this children's biography are brilliant.
I'm sorry I don't have any fiction from last year on this list. There was a lot of fiction I liked a lot, like Commonwealth and Summer Before the War, but the truth is I liked these a lot but I'm not mad for them, and I think there's a difference between these levels of love for books. Maybe you've run across some fiction from 2016 I missed...please share.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
