Tales from the Reading Room has a brief post on some of the Best Books of 2014. The list includes Alice McDermott’s Someone and Heather O’Neill’s The Girl who was Saturday Night.
I thought I’d read quite a few books this year, and a lot of newly-published ones, too, and yet the best-of lists remain full of titles I haven’t got around to, or have never even heard of. So while my wish list takes a battering, here’s my chance to return the favour. I know I ought to wait until the end of the month but something about this time of year just provokes the urge to tot up the balance sheet. It’s been an excellent reading year, as what follows will show.
Alice McDermott – Someone
Jill Dawson – The Tell-Tale Heart
Naomi Wood – Mrs Hemingway
Jane Smiley – Some Luck
Heather O’Neill – The Girl who was Saturday Night
Eleanor Catton – The Luminaries
Curtis Sittenfeld – Sisterland
