Book Souk

A bazaar crowded with random offerings. William Gibson/Henrik Ibsen. Zafon, Murakami, Van Gogh. A table of well-thumbed Louisa May Alcott. Shiny Urban Fantasy and an aromatic clutter of cookbooks.

My Top 10 Reads in 2015

Closing the year with a list of my top 10 reads of 2015.  That's books read DURING 2015, regardless of when they were written (bear in mind that I don't often get around to reading things the year they're published). In alphabetical order by title, they are (teeny drumroll please!): 
* "Ancillary Justice" (Ann Leckie)
* "Barnaby Rudge" (Charles Dickens)
* "The Clasp" (Sloane Crosley)
* "A Discovery of Witches" (Deborah Harkness)
* "Many Colored World" (Julian May)
* "Sinister Street" (Compton Mackenzie)
* "Skippy Dies" (Paul Murray)
* "Station Eleven" (Emily St John Mandel)
* "Story of a New Name" (Elena Ferrante)
* "The Watchmaker of Filigree Street" (Natasha Pulley)
