To add to the #top10ofthedecade #fictionedition I'm borrowing an idea from @Lindy and doing an #intranslationedition #fictionintranslation
Feel very lucky to be able to have access to a fantastically diverse selection of fiction translated into English; so many brilliant books 💙
Thank you for the tag @Centique and I'm sorry it took forever 😆
This is my #top10ofthedecade #fictionedition I read a lot of old books so I tried to make it easier for myself by limiting it to the books published within the decade & cheated by including Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy as one book 😅 I'll be doing a separate one for fiction in translation later #listfever
I loved seeing everyone's lists; great fun ❤️ Fab idea @Cinfhen
Since I read fiction, nonfiction, ya, and graphic novels, I cheated and picked 10 from each category so I didn't have to narrow down too much. Choosing these was like picking which pet or kid I love more...😂
Here's my #Top10oftheDecade #FictionEdition.
Any friends who have not already done this, I'd love to see your picks.
This took me some time. I had a very hard time narrowing it down to just 10 books. Also should say, I tried to pick a book published each year between 2010 and 2019. I did not necessarily read them in the year of publication though.
It was extremely difficult choosing my #top10ofthedecade #fictionedition. I absolutely loved all ten of these books, and I believe they were all published in the last 10 years. I Highly recommend them all!
I think they were all published in the last decade!
I found this really hard (as we all did!)
Honorable mentions to Assassins Fate - Robin Hobb, end of an era and sobbed through the last quarter. Fitz will always have my heart ❤️
And for poetry Rapture by Carol Ann Duffy is amazing.
