I’m mildly embarrassed that I only averaged a book a month, and not really even that, but in my defense, I work full time and the occasional overtime shift, with a wife, three small kids and a dog. My free time is limited. I used to crush books back in the day. The truth is I made a conscious decision this year, since dropping this site, to dedicate my time to my craft. I have focused my attention on writing. It has been a productive year in that regard.

As for the list, I like to think of it as suggestions, I hate being told what to do, or be commanded by what other people like. There are a lot of empty endorsements out there in the world. There was only book on this list that I didn’t dig but you might, so I wouldn’t tell you not to. Check them out and see if the synopsis interests you.

Thank you to everyone who has keeping up with the site and I hope you’ve enjoyed the novels/posts. I appreciate all of you. Happy New Year. -SG

  1. A book a month is more than 70 percent of the US population. (I read that somewhere.) (And also that most people who pick up a book don’t finish it.) Besides, you have some really heady books in your list, the kind that make you slow down and think!
