Best books I've read so far this year

I've finished reading my 30th book of 2016 today so I thought it would be interesting to mention my favorites. Just so you know these are the books that I have read this year, not those that have been published this year. Also, there is no particular order.
  1. 1.
    The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
    There is a reason that Donna Tartt won a Pulitzer
  2. 2.
    The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
    Baseball, college, love, loss, feeling like you don't belong, heartbreak, and humor.
  3. 3.
    Our Young Man by Edmund White
    A book about a French male model in New York. Edmund White is a fantastic and vivid storyteller.
  4. 4.
    The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel
    The same author who penned "Life of Pi" writes another wonderful novel
  5. 5.
    Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer
    An interesting look about how memories are made and a look at the US Memory championship.
