My Favorite Books From Every Year I've Been Alive

My friend Benji did this on his blog a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was a great idea. I wanted in on the fun and made my own list.

2016 is still to be determined

Some of these years were a lot harder than others, but this was fun to do. Looking through the list, it definitely covers all the genres I love and all my years of reading. And makes it very clear how I feel about Megan Whalen Turner and Diana Wynne Jones.

    1. The Westing Game is perfection. I love Turtle so much. And Doomsday Book isn't my favorite Willis book, but it definitely kicked me in the gut and made me feel everything.
