This year, I set another goal of 40 books (same as for 2018) which I beat with a little more integrity than last year (I didn’t add in any comics…) so I’ll give you a scattering of books that I found moving or spectacular or just plain good.
A note, I tend to read mostly science fiction, literary and queer fiction/non-fiction, but have branched a little into young adult and fantasy this year as well as returning to horror, a favourite when I was a teen.
In no particular order, my top ten (or top whatever number it ends up being) books I read so far for 2019 are:
- On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous – Ocean Vuong
- China Mountain Zhang – Maureen F. McHugh
- The Troop – Nick Cutter
- Black Leopard, Red Wolf – Marlon James
- Perdido Street Station – China Mieville
- The Testaments – Margaret Atwood
- A Head Full of Ghosts – Paul Tremblay
- A Taste of Honey – Kai Ashante Wilson
- Rosewater – Tade Thompson
