New York Times Book Review’s
Picks of 2014

All The Light We Cannot SeeThe New York Times Book Review has released its picks of the 100 Notable Books of the year,  making Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See (S&S/Scribner) the top fiction title in terms of number of picks to date (see he NYT BR‘s original review). The only holdouts are the Booker committee and Publishers Weekly.

Everything I NeverBut more interesting can be the outliers. The NYT BR is the only one so far to also recognize the book the Amazon’s editors picked as the #1 title of the year, Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You (Penguin Press — see the original NYT BR review)
