The New York Times Book Review released its 10 best books of the year. Excited that AMERICANAH and FIVE DAYS AT MEMORIAL made it. Looking forward to THE GOLDFINCH and THE FLAMETHROWERS. What do you think?

I think Ben Macintyre's DOUBLE CROSS: THE TRUE STORIES OF THE D-DAY SPIES. The combination of World War II intrigue and crazy, seemingly impossible tactics ("Why don't we have a guy just invent a bunch of spies and write dispatches from all of them?") was riveting.

Definite one for me is THE GOLDFINCH. But will wait for the paperback version. - Jo
