  1. My favorite new-to-me author has got to be Kate Atkinson for her imaginative and extremely well written novel “Live After Life”. It took a while to get used to what she was doing, but once I was with her I loved the ride through time.


  2. It’s so interesting to see what books are being chosen as favorites. I keep seeing All The Light We Cannot See, so I know I must read that. But, I intensely disliked the Harry Quebert Affair. So, that particular novel didn’t work for me. I know lots of people loved it, though. Thanks for sharing your inspirations from 2014!


    • I’m surprised you did not like The Harry Quebert indeed, it’s so interesting in structure. Actually my big post with favorites per category will be up in January only.
      And yes to All The Light We Cannot See, the audio works very well too


      • I thought Harry Quebert too contrived, and absolutely not accurate in its setting of America. The author’s naivity and youth somehow really bothered me. Perhaps because i thought the adoration his book received undeserved, or at least over the top. However, i am in a huge minority with that opinion.


  3. I’ve read 1/2 of one of the books on your list. How’s that? LOL. I got about halfway through ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE, but it got too slow for me. I might pick it up again one day because the writing is lovely and I thought the premise was interesting. Glad you enjoyed it!



    • you could try to listen to it, this is actually what I did, and the narrator is excellent. The difference could well be that I am probably at least the age of your parents, lol. BUT I LOVE Kate Morton, cf your list. I just happened to discover her a few years ago, not this year


  4. The only author on your list that I have read is Willa Cather. But her novel My Antonia is one of my all time favorites; one that I have read and reread. If any of the other authors on your list are half as good as Ms Cather then I must consider them. In fact, Anthony Doerr’s novel is on the short list of a reading group to which I belong so he may be the next.
    Thanks for the interesting list.


    • I definitely plan to read more by Cather! And yes I’m quite picky, so these 10 books are really good! Come back at the beginning of January where I will post about my favorites by genre of this year 2014. Thanks Jim for stopping by


  5. Ooh, so many interesting books! I’m listening to the audio book for My Antonia right now and it’s so good. My first time reading Willa Cather.
