I meant to do this for awhile but I kept forgetting I write down in a notebook every book I've read during a year just to keep track and not buy the same book again in case I forgot I read it which has happened. Anyway here goes in no particular order:
Tiny Sunbirds Fly Away by Christine Watson;
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green-difficult subject matter but handled sensitively and written very very well;
The Lost Husband by Katherine Center-while I thought I'd have trouble with this book it is really wonderfully written about a woman getting her life back after the death of her husband-Katherine had turned out to be one of my favorite writers and is always responsive to my emails;
Love Potion Number 10 by Betsy Woodson;
TransAtlantic by Colin McCann;
Loteria by Mario Alberto Zambrano
Freuds Mistress by Katherine Mack and Jennifer Kaufman;
The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier-she is a great writer creating stories from historical events;
The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns by MarieDilloway;
Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane by Kelly Harms -loved this one!!!;
Whistling Past The Graveyard by J Crandell-loved this one too!!!

Return from Gap Creek by Robert Morgan; and finally
Where'd You go Bernadette by Marie Semple

While I didn't read these this year these are my absolute most favorite books of all time:
I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb-wonderful,story of family dynamics;
Last Days of Summer by Steve Kruger-fabulous story of a young lonely Brooklyn boy developing a relationship with a rookie major league ball player told in letter form-very funny very warm and just good; and
The Stand by Stephen King-read this three times-very very long but the best of all of kings books
