Probably people exist who despise end-of-year best lists and top 10 lists, but I’m not one of them.
The clickbait-iest clickbait for me is “Top 10 Best Books of the Year.” Gets me every time.
Here’s my version, in alphabetical order by title because otherwise there’s too much pondering:
Caste by Isabel Wilkerson
The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton
The Guncle by Steven Rowley
How the Word Is Passed by Clint Smith
A Promised Land by Barack Obama
The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel
Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld
The Secret Lives of Church Ladies by Deesha Philyaw
Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler
These Precious Days by Ann Patchett
