Banana Rose. I loved Natalie Goldberg's nonfiction. Oops. Not her fiction.
Tin Can Tree by Anne Tyler. I loved everything I'd read of Anne Tyler. Everything else.
God of Small Things. Too graphic for this reader.
The Story of Mankind. It won a Newbery. And why?
Kitchen Confidential. Can't stand that awful Anthony Bourdain. Get some integrity, fellow.
Boy's Life by Robert McCammon. I had heard McCammon writes horror. I hate horror. Boy's Life is a little different.
Chemistry by Wang Weike. I don't know anything about science, especially chemistry. It's still magnificent.
Radium Girls by Kate Moore. It could have been bleak and depressing. It was bleak and depressing, but good writing lifts everything up.
Winter by Karl Ove Knausgaard. So many people warned me that this would be impossible to read. They were wrong. Completely wrong.
The Last Shot: City Streets, Basketball Dreams. What do I know about sports? Nada. A fabulous story even for a sporty-no-nothing like me.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
