Top Ten Tuesday:
What were my favorite reads each year for the past ten years?
Note: I started keeping track on my books on Goodreads in July of 2009. My slection for 2009 reflects my favorite books from the last half of the year, July to December. For all other years, I consulted Goodreads and based my choices on my recollections and the reviews I wrote for those books. Some books have weathered better than others, but to the best of my memory I selected books I liked THAT year, even if it hasn't remained a favorite moving forward.
(I read the book in the highlighted year. The books were not necessarily published that year.)
