New York Times Top 5 Fiction Books of 2011

Four out of five – not bad.  The five best fiction books for 2011, according to the New York Times Book Review section include three I’ve read and reviewed; one I am currently reading; the fifth I will probably skip –  Ten Thousand Saints – unless you have a recommendation to reconsider?

The other four in the year’s top titles:


The Art of Fielding           Swamplandia!                       The Tiger’s Wife

Currently reading: 11/22/63

Not sure I agree with all of them – what about you – which books would you have picked for top 5?
