It was damned hard to pluck this list down to 10 but, in the end, these very special books were by far my favorite reading experiences of this year.  And if you read this blog regularly, you know I had a serious girl crush on Cheryl Strayed for months after reading WILD.  I even lost my ability to speak like a human in her book-signing line at The Ferry Building.  *sigh*

1.  WILD by Cheryl Strayed

2.  THE TICKING IS THE BOMB by Nick Flynn

3.  BEING FLYNN by Nick Flynn

4.  THE SENSE OF AN ENDING by Julian Barnes

5.  THE DESCENDANTS by Kaui Hart Hemmings

6.  RULES OF CIVILITY by Amor Towles

7.  THE LIFEBOAT by Charlotte Rogan

8.  FROM OUR HOUSE by Lee Martin

9.  THE YELLOW BIRDS by Kevin Powers
