I’ve been posting my reading lists since 2008. It’s fun to look back and see what I was reading at different times! I can see shifts from heavy theology (when I had just graduated from seminary), to lots of books on autism, to business and marketing books, to now mostly fiction. I still read books from all the categories of course, but fiction is currently king.

As we close out the decade, I thought it would be interesting to look back through the lists and see what my top books are. I was surprised that some of the books that still stand out to me now didn’t always make my “best of the year” lists. But being memorable is different from being best.  

I didn’t limit myself to a certain number of books from each year. I just picked the ones that stood out the most. Here they are! (Amazon affiliate links included if you want to click over and check them out!)
