BEST BOOKS I'VE READ THIS YEAR

Surprisingly full of spy novels and murder mysteries.
  1. "Child 44" by Tom Rob Smith. Terrifying picture of Stalinist Russia that would rather ignore crime than stop a child murderer.
  2. "The Ice Princess" by Camilla Läckberg
  3. "11/22/63" by Stephen King. Wonderfully chilling reimagination of history.
  4. "The Night Film" by Marisha Pessl
  5. "The Swan Thieves" by Elizabeth Kostova. Also "The Historian" by Kostova as well.
  6. "Defending Jacob"
  7. "The Bat" by Jo Nesbo. I'm excited to start the Harry Hole series, so far so good.
  8. "The Lord of the Flies"
  9. "The Interestings"
