My Five Favorite Books of 2010

As always, I wish I read more, but I read well this year. Along with the books I reread for my literature class (that list is here), I found some gems. In random order, here are the five new-to-me books that I am certain will stick with me in the years to come:

Just Kids by Patti Smith
Room by Emma Donoghue
Let’s Take the Long Way Home by Gail Caldwell
Miles from Nowhere by Nami Mun
Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Happy new year!
