Favorites of 2013: Books


The following books are not necessarily books published in the last year, but rather, books that I happened to read in the last year.  I can’t remember all, but these are the five favorites of the year…

5.  Sycamore Row by John Grisham

Sycamore Row (Jake Brigance, #2)  An excellent semi-sequel to his first novel A Time to Kill.

4.  The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom

The Time Keeper  I enjoy Albom’s books and this one certainly didn’t disappoint.  It is a very interesting look into man’s obsession with time.

3.  Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield by Jeremy Scahill

Dirty Wars: The World is a ...  Excellent investigative look into the events leading into the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

2.  The Value of Nothing:  How to Reshape Market Society and Redefine Democracy by Raj Patel

The Value of Nothing: How to Reshape Market Society and Redefine Democracy

1.  I am Malala:  The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai

I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban  This was easily my favorite book of the year.  Malala offers a very unique insight into the history of Pakistan as well as her (and her father’s) role in promoting the educational rights of girls throughout Pakistan and the world.

These were just some of my favorites of the year.  Feel free to share your own favorites.  I am always looking for new things to read.
