NYT Book Review’s Top Ten

Following the release of their selection of the 100 Notable Books of 2015, the New York Times Book Review today announces which are in the Top 10.

Several other sources have picked some of the titles, such as The Story of the Lost Child by Elena Ferrante (Europa Editions), the last in the series of novels that have quickly risen from cult favorites to universally recognized and, in nonfiction, the National Book Award Winner, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates (RH/Spiegel & Grau).

But, amazingly, given the numerous  Best Books picks to date, the NYT Book Review still managed to include three titles in their top ten that were not picked by any other sources, proving once again how difficult it is for critics to agree:

Outline: A Novel, Rachel Cusk, (PRH/FSG)

The Door, Magda Szabo, (NYRB Classics)

Empire of Cotton: A Global History, Sven Beckert, (PRH/Knopf; HighBridge Audio)

    I have read a few of these! It’s been a great year for great books! I have read a few that I think have been fantastic, Red Blood, Yellow Skin by Linda L.T. Baer has been my favorite. OF all the books on Vietnam, this one is great because it shows the story of the wars but before and after them as well. From a girl who lived with her family there. Fantastic!!
