It's the end of the year, which means it's time for best-of lists! It was a bad year, but it was a good year for books. Below you can find my top ten books of the year (in no particular order), some honorable mentions, and a couple of audio-book only entries.
Piranesi is the latest book from best-selling author Susanna Clarke of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell fame. Piranesi is only the third book, and second full length novel, that Clarke has ever had published. It's also the first book from Clarke in nearly a decade and a half. All of this is to say that when Clarke writes something new, it's rightfully quite an event in the book world. Clarke brings her trademark brand of fantasy to a new world with Piranesi.
