Warrior Librarian

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.”

Looking for more great book suggestions? I have many others to recommend on Goodreads—books I’ve really, really liked, or books I’ve just really liked, so feel free to follow me there to find more titles to read. (You’ll find all my non-fiction favorites there too.)

Share the Love…

I’d love to hear about your favorites. Or… feel free to share your thoughts on the books I’ve listed. Agree? Disagree? Whatever makes your page-turning hand tingle.

But a Note: Be nice, folks, or you will be banned from commenting forthwith, forever and ever and ever. *Insert maniacal laughter here* No, really.
