Last week Nymeth at things mean a lot wrote about her favorite books of the year so far. I’ve decided to steal that idea and make a list of my favorites from the last six months. It is obvious I don’t stick to one genre but I was surprised by the mix. I will be adding Roberto Bolano’s 2666 to this list when I finished the Read-Along.
