I know it’s February 2015 already, but I have one last “best of” list to share. These titles might not have made the more famous year-end lists, but they are some of my favorite books published in 2014 from across the pond.
Why didn’t anyone tell me about Jonathan Coe??? Apparently, he’s been writing novels for years, but it wasn’t until recently that I read
And speaking of Belgians, there’s a new Poirot! Agatha Christie died years ago and her detective supposedly had his last case in Curtain, but suddenly Hercule Poirot is back to solve another mystery in The Monogram Murders. Sophie Hannah has done a bang-up job recreating one of the world’s most famous literary detectives. And the plot is pretty good too.
These are just three of my favorite British books of 2014. See my list for six more.
