Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon Hour 6 Mini Challenge

The Best Books of My Reading Year:

Although the year is only 4 months old, I've had some memorable reads:


The Best Book of the Year:  

   A Constellation of Vital Phenomena: A Novel - Anthony Marra    

   runner up: Doc: A Novel - Mary Doria Russell 

     it's too hard to pick just one here.  Both are wonderful reads!  

        Marra's book is heart-wrenching and thought provoking.  

        Russell's book brought Doc Holliday and the Earps to life for me.


The Best Mystery Book: The Big Sleep - Raymond Chandler 

      What can I say...it's a classic.


The Best Sci-Fi Book:  Towers of Midnight (The Wheel of Time) - 'Robert Jordan', 'Brandon Sanderson'  It's such a great book that it made the slog through some of the middle books in this series worthwhile.  It's the penultimate book of the Wheel of Time Series (Book 13).   


Best Author:  Anya Seton 

I finally got around to reading Katherine and was "wowed".  She made me feel like I was right there in Medieval England.  I will definitely read more of her works.
