I was once dubbed Warrior Librarian, and I glommed onto that title like french breads gloms on to my thighs. I love the idea of being a story keeper, a fierce protector of reading, and of sharing the brilliant books I’ve read with others.
In that vein, here are my top-rated fiction & memoir books by year. I intend for this to be a juicy place for sharing not just my favorites, but yours, too. Please do share your “best of” via the comments section at the very bottom of the page.
A few things to note:
- I’ve only included books I’ve given 5 stars to. But stars are subjective. I would rather say I LOVED these books with everything that I am, but this list doesn’t include books I really, really liked or books that I just really liked.
- Whether or not I like a book is totally personal. As it is for all readers. I can pick up the most well-written, amazing story, and because it has one errant zombie, I won’t like it. I don’t like mushrooms either, but that doesn’t make ’em “bad.”
