Once again, those clever folks over at The Broke and Bookish have come up with another Top Ten Tuesday theme I couldn’t resist – this time it’s my Top Ten Books read this year. It’s really hard to limit myself to just ten when I’ve read so many great books recently, but here’s going with my gut, roughly in the order in which I read them.
And, holding over from this weekend’s 48 HBC mindset, I’m pleased to note that half of these have diverse protagonists. That’s better than I would have guessed, even if I’m not doing so well with diversity in my authors.
