These are my picks for the best books I read this year. Please click on the book cover to be taken to a description of each book.
Who would have thought a non-fiction book about North Korea would be #1? I did not really know much about North Korea and when I read this book I was shocked. What hardships the people of that country have endured. This books reads as fast as a novel. The author focuses on a few specific people and their lives. I think it is a must read.
I also think the book Where Men Win Glory is a definite must read for every American. Pat Tilman was a hero.
A book that I made fun of my friend for reading, True Colors by Kristin Hannah, ended up on the list! It was really a fun and interesting read.
Sherman Alexie is a really great author and I loved his book of short stories; which is saying something because I am not a big fan of short stories.
Sadly, I look back at my reading year in 2010 with some sadness. I really did not read that many books that knocked my socks off. However, yesterday I went to Barnes & Noble armed with gift cards and bought about 7 new books! They all look really good and I want to dive into them all right this minute!!!!
I would love to know what the best books you read last year were!!!!
