Sunday Salon: Best Fiction of 2008
It's that time of year, and everyone is weighing in on the best fiction releases of 2008. Here's a roundup of five lists:
1. Publishers Weekly
2. Library Journal
Of this list, I read All We Ever Wanted Was Everything (review here), Cost (review here), and Olive Kitteridge (brief review here).
3. Washington Post
I read America, America (review here), Goldengrove (review here), and The House on Fortune Street (before my blog launch). Olive Kitteridge made their list as well.
4. New York Times
I may need to add a few of these to my TBR, given that there are lots of titles on these lists that I didn't read. One consistent inclusion was Home by Marilynne Robinson, which I just couldn't get through.
I'm curious...what did you think was overlooked that made your personal list of best fiction this year?
