Here is a Year End list of favorite music, movies and books. I generally don’t read books the same year they are published, partly because I borrow from libraries more than I buy, and partly because I just tend to be behind, so only “The String Diaries” and “The Winter People” are actually 2014 titles. Happy Holidays!
Angel Olsen – Burn Your Fire For No Witness
Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires – Dereconstructed (review)
Rachel Thomasin – Microforms
The Drums – Encyclopedia

*Still need to see these but pretty sure they’d be on here.
“Affinity” – Sarah Waters
“Help For The Haunted” – John Searles (review)
This one book I can’t find again, for the life of me. Anyone know it?**
“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” – Ransom Riggs
“Skinwalkers” – Tony Hillerman
“The String Diaries” – Stephen Lloyd Jones
**FOUND IT: “The Winter People” – Jennifer McMahon
What was on the cover of the mystery book? Was it paperback or hardcover?
I think it was just woods on the cover? Or maybe a girl in the woods. I think it was hardcover, but really not sure.
I used to keep a notebook with every book I read. It helped me to give them away easier instead of hoarding them. You may want to consider an online logbook.
Goodreads.com is good for that. Somehow I never noted this one anywhere.
