A List of Lists: This Year’s “Best of” Lists

For all those looking to see what they missed this year in films, books, tv and music, we have compiled a few “best of” lists from around the internet, including thoughts from Time, io9, goodreads readers, kirkus review, Roger Ebert and more. These lists are especially helpful to me, because I’m perpetually a year behind on reading new releases and end of the year recaps allow me to compile a nice stack of books for January’s inevitable hibernation. If you have a stack of gift cards and are looking to spend them, certainly try some of these recommendations. We’ll be posting some “best of” lists come the New Year, but until then, enjoy these links and have a happy and safe New Years!
