It’s that time of year when people write up lists of resolutions, favourites, and generally talk about end of year related stuff. Over on “Terrible Minds,” Chuck Wendig had the brilliant idea of doing an end-of-year wrap up that was based on audience participation, and I thought we’d try the same thing. (I’m an actor and a director of children’s theatre. I thrive on audience participation.) So here goes.
Instead of posting a “Top Ten Favourite Books” I’m going to open the floor to the comments section. What are the best books you’ve read this year? You are not required to make a list of ten–you can post as many or as few as you like, although we do ask that you not be so long-winded as to drown out the voices of your fellow commentators. Not all books have to be published in 2014–we just want to know what you’ve been reading, and what stands out to you from the morass of published work.
So here goes! What do you recommend and why?
