Best Books of 2013

Before it’s too far into 2014! Turns out I didn’t read that much in 2013. (I blame knitting.) But I did read a few books that I thought were five-star:

  • 1493: the sequel to 1491, looking at the world spawned by the Columbian Exchange, the good, bad, and ugly.
  • Fun Home: a graphic novel about family, sexuality, and death. Read for school, but loved it anyway.
  • How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: should probably be included with any first CSA. Great, great cookbook.
  • The Warmth of Other Suns: the story of the Great Migration of African-Americans in the 20th century, told with a mix of stats, primary sources, and stories.

In the order I read them, linked to my Goodreads reviews.
