I love the end of year book lists. It's like a treasure hunt to find new books I want to read. So, here goes.

This, of course, is not a comprehensive list. There are many other places to look (note that I deliberately left out romance novels. It's too close to home, and I have too many friends in the field to showcase just 5 or 10 for the entire year. I, of course, have my own favorites).

I hope you find something that appeals to you here.

Have fun!
