A Year in Reading: 2014

Now that 2014 is over, it’s time to look back on my year of reading. I read twenty-six books last year–a number so small it’s almost embarrassing to admit. In my defense, though, I did revise a dissertation and produce a year-long webcomic. So, it’s not like I’ve been slacking.

In years past, I’ve listed my favorite non-fiction, my favorite fiction, and my least-favorite reads of the year. This year, I’m just going to provide a general list of five favorites–with #1 being my favorite read of the year.

Here it is:

  1. Pym–Mat Johnson
  2. Essex County–Jeff Lemire
  3. Understanding Comics–Scott McCloud
  4. The Crucible of Doubt–Terryl and Fiona Givens
  5. Outer Dark–Cormac McCarthy

I plan to make up for lost time in 2015. Here’s hoping for at least fifty books this year…

    Isn’t Lemire great?

    You should consider flipping Enid so her first strips are on top, that new readers can get to her chronologically.
