When I was cleaning up my CATEGORIES, I decided to add a new one, MY FAVORITES, so I could indicate the books I have especially liked.  Here are my choices from the books I read for the first time this year.   My blogs also include some long-time favorites of mine that are not listed here.

Tiger’s Eye: A Memoir, by Inga Clendinnen.

Poppy, by Drusilla Modjeska.

    What a good idea! I do like it when bloggers use categories effectively, it makes finding what I’m looking for so much easier. Sometimes I order a book on the strength of an interesting review and I like to acknowledge that when I review it on my blog, but as happened recently with A Beautiful Place to Die by Malla Nunn, by the time the book arrives or I finally get round to reading it I can’t remember which blogger recommended it. Those blogger blogs with no categories and a lousy search function drive me round the bend!

    If I were making a list for the year, Half of a Yellow Sun would definitely be on it. Based on your review of Please Look after Mom, I’m planning that one as my read for South Korea, so maybe it will be among my favorites of 2013 (or 2014…)
