Book shopping for the holidays: the 2014 edition!

Earlier today, I spotted the NY Times list of “100 Notable Books of 2014,” which a friend referred to as her shopping list this holiday season. And I thought that was a great idea, so I went to check out the list. And there are a lot of fascinating-looking books on the list, many of which I’m interested in reading. But it turns out that out of those 100 books, none of them are by people I personally know. And you know what? People I know have put out loads of great books this year, too, including a bunch of books I’ve bought.

So here’s an addendum list. These are all writers I know, and these are also all books I’ve picked up in the past year (or plan to for Christmas), because I bought them or received them as a gift or (in the case of Revenge of the Scammed and Hagridden) I’m an author. So consider this a recommendation list — these books have found space on my shelves, and they deserve to be on yours or your friends’ this holiday season!
