There are lots of great books out there.
But some are worth the effort.
We asked some of our favorite authors to share their favorite books, and we’ll give you our picks.1.
The Secret Life of Bees by Sarah LippmannThe best books of 2016:The Secret Life by Sarah P. Lippman1.
A Man in Search of a Name by Jane AustenThe best-selling novel of 2017:Jane Austen, Jane Austener’s Murder of a Carter by Jane Smith-Morse.
Read moreA man in search of a name is a great premise.
I don’t know if I’d go as far as Jane Austening’s Murder Of A Carter.
But it’s certainly a nice one.
I’m not really into the subject, but I like the idea of a man in a man’s world.
A novel set in a Victorian era with a narrator named Tom Carter, and written in a manner that feels authentic to Austen’s time.
I love how Lippmans prose style is so smooth and clear.2.
The Book of the New Moon by Robert CialdiniThe best book of 2017 (with an asterisk):The Book of The New Moon, by Robert M. Cial.
Read all my reviews of The Book Of The New Sun.
I’ve always loved books set in the New World.
I can imagine what it would be like to be the first human to explore the islands of South America, or what it’s like to live on the shores of the Caribbean and discover the beauty of the ocean.
I think of these islands as my favorite places to live in my life.3.
A Woman in Paris by Susan BrownmillerThe best novel of 2016 (with a asterisk:The New Yorker’s Book of My Life: A Novel):Susan Brownmillo’s A Woman In Paris is an extraordinary novel that explores the relationship between love and friendship.
It’s one of the best memoirs I’ve read.
And it’s also one of my favorite books to read.
I loved this book because it was full of wonderful, vivid descriptions of a world I was not familiar with at all.
It was my first love, and it was a place I could not escape.4.
The Grapes of Wrath by Jane EyreThe best memoir in 2017 (at #2):Jane Eyre by Jane Fonda.
It’s a great memoir, and one of those memoirs that’s perfect for my favorite writer: Jane Eyres.
It has a powerful, passionate narrator, the world of Jane EyRE and the story of a woman who is trying to understand her life as a woman and as a lover.5.
The Woman Who Walked Away by Anne RiceThe best children’s book of the year:The Woman Who Walking Away, by Anne Richardson.
It has a wonderful story of an orphan girl who’s raised by a group of very caring people.
And I loved the fact that the book didn’t just focus on the orphanage; it also looked at her world, the people she met, and the things she did.
I liked the way that Richardson was able to convey this incredible depth of humanity in a simple and compelling book.6.
The Wreck of the Old Man and the Sea by Anne LamottThe best young adult novel of the past three years:The Wreck Of The Old Man And The Sea, by J.D. Salinger.
I think I love a book called The Work and the Wave.
It was a book about how people move forward when they’re moved by something, but also a book that was a great metaphor for life as an adult.7.
The Girl Who Read by Margaret AtwoodThe best literary novel of 2018 (at 5.3):The Girl Who Reading, by Margaret A. Atwood.
I’m a huge fan of A Wrinkle in Time, so I was thrilled to find a book in which I can read this one as well as some other good books I’ve already read.
The book was beautifully written and really pulled me in, as if it were a book I had to read just to get into it.8.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret WenteThe best adult novel in 2018 (with two asterisks):The Handmaids Tale, by Gail Simone.
I thought of this book when I was in the middle of my first period and just really wanted to read this book.
I found myself really enjoying it as I was getting into my period.
And then, when I finally got into my second period, I found out that it wasn’t even a book anymore.
It had been superseded by The Handmaiden by Patricia Highsmith, a book which was actually a sequel to the first.
So I’m really happy I finally found that one.9.
The Little Women by Kate AtkinsonThe best nonfiction book of 2018:The Little Women
