10 Best Books of 2013…

…according to Publishers Weekly:

Sea of Hooks by Lindsay Hill

Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright

Dirty Wars: The War is a Battlefield by Jeremy Scahill

Men We Reaped: A Memoir by Jesmyn Ward

The People in the Trees by Hanya Yanagihara

Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery by Robert Kolker

Miss Anne in Harlem: The White Women of the Black Renaissance by Carla Kaplan

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra

The Silence and the Roar by Nihad Sirees

The Good Lord Bird by James McBride

(Descriptions of each can be found in the original PW article)

Again I embarrass myself by saying…I haven’t even heard of most of these, let alone read them. I’m also doubtful that I’ll read any of them unless someone I trust recommends one specifically. I may read Dirty Wars, but only because I met Jeremy Scahill a few years ago when I was a journalism student.

And the rest of you – have you read any of these? Would you recommend any in particular?

    • The only reason I’ve heard of any of them at all is because I try to keep up with news from the publishing industry. Pretty bad.
