So, my amazing friend Ms. Mix and Bitch had told me to rank my reads, but there is no way in hell that I can rank the 100+ books that I read in the last year (I'm counting my Pajiba reviews in that total, because I read that shit). However, I will give you my ten favorite books from Year One of the Cannonball Read. If you haven't checked them out yet, I invite you to - hey, why not add them to your list for Year Two? So, in order from ten to one, here goes:
10. Anybody Out There? by Marian Keyes
9. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
8. My Lobotomy by Howard Dully
7. Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult
6. Paradise by A. L. Kennedy - This one didn't get reviewed, due to time restraints, but it knocked my socks off.
5. The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson
4. Beautiful Boy by David Sheff
3. The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie
2. Band Geek by Dustin Rowles
1. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
*Honorable Mention - Columbine by Dave Cullen
(Actually, Columbine deserves to be #3 or 4, but I kept my Pajiba reviews separate, so it gets its own place.)
There you have it. You can check out ten of the eleven books listed; Band Geek is not yet published but I hope like hell that it is one day soon, because it's effing amazing.
