The New Top Ten Tuesday Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I have another post planned for wrapping up 2013, but I thought I would share my best of and participate in the Top Ten Tuesday topic. The books are listed in no particular order.
Bonus Non-Fiction Favourites:
I know one thing... 2013 was the year of getting around to authors... I have wanted to read Mary Roach FOREVER! People go on about how fabulous she is and then I never read her. This was a match made in heaven. I love how Mary Roach writes and I also loved the narrator for this audiobook. I want to explore both of them more in 2014. You wouldn't think an exploration of the uses of human cadavers would be interesting; but Mary Roach writes in a style that make it very approachable. I am just disappointed that the narrator changes for her other audiobooks.
This was a wonderful exploration of the life of a midwife in the 1950s. I enjoy books set in England that explore the social and class situation. It is sad that it really wasn't that long ago that this was occurring. It was very eye-opening about just what it was like for all these women popping out child after child. And it was told from the viewpoint of a midwife which is not a typical viewpoint for books. I am looking forward to reading more from Worth as I have both of the sequels.
I need to read more non-fiction in 2014...
