A list of lists: Best Books of the Year

It's the annual round-up of book round-ups. HA. But seriously... :)

My favorite reads of the year were A Little Life, Kitchens of the Great Midwest, The Mothers, Dept. of Speculation, We Should All Be Feminists, Why I Wake Early, and The Girls. No non fiction this year!! Hmmm. Must change that next year...
