Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
OK, I messed up. I had a post all ready to go earlier today and I even published it. And then I realized, oops! That’s next week’s Top Ten Tuesday. So I’m getting a little bit of deja vu all over again as I do this week’s topic. Oh, calamity!
This week’s REAL topic is:
Top Ten Favorite 2016 Releases So Far This Year
Hmmm…this Top Ten seems a little unfair this week. I’ve probably only read around 15 or so 2016 releases (if you count the re-releases of classic British Mysteries that I’ve read), so that doesn’t seem like much of a “top ten” list for me. Instead I’ll go with my top five 2016 releases, and top five prior-to-2016 releases.
Top 2016 Reads
- A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy by Sue Klebold
- Three Martini Lunch by Suzanne Rindell
- Double Knot by Gretchen Archer
- Corpse with the Garnet Face by Cathy Ace
- A Muddied Murder by Wendy Tyson
Just a note on Ms. Klebold’s book – I’ve read it, and it’s sitting in a pile waiting for me to review it here on Hidden Staircase. It is hearbreaking and at times difficult to read. But a powerful story about a mother coming to terms with her son’s inexcusable actions, and attempting to educate others on depression (and how well people can hide it) and what she terms as “brain health.” My link here is not to my review, which I have not completed yet, but why I chose to read the book in the first place.
Top Reads Published Prior to 2016 (But Read in 2016)
- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
- Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
- Double Indemnity by James M. Cain
- The Crossing by Michael Connelly
What about you? What fabulous reads have you found this year (2016 or otherwise)? What should I pick up next? (Ha! I say that like I don’t have a huge TBR pile.) Sound off below, and link up to your own TTT if you’ve got one!
