The Best (Weird) Books of the 2010s


I receive a lot of ARCs (advance reading copies) and for that reason, and because space, I don’t keep many of the books. For the same reasons, I try not to buy many books. But these books, I either kept after reading and reviewing or if I received an e-arc, I actually went out to buy. All of these books are from the 2010s and have a permanent home on my bookshelf.


Seeing this list, I realize that I definitely gravitate toward the weird books! Each one has a strange little element to it, are beautifully written and will take your breath away with their brilliance. You should read them!
