I’ve read some excellent things this year, and I thought I’d share my favourites in a short blog post. These aren’t in any particular order, I would recommend all of them equally.

  1. Maddadam by Margaret Atwood
  2. Edgelands by Paul Farley and Michael Symmons Roberts
  3. Radical Gardening: Power, Politics and Rebellion in the Garden by George MacKay
  4. The Carbon Cycle by Kate Rawles
  5. Incredible! Plant Veg, Grow a Revolution by Pam Warhurst and Joanna Dobson
  6. Queering Anarchism by various authors
  7. The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter
  8. A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit
  9. Rings of Saturn by W. G. Sebald
  10. Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity by Marc Augé

Bonus: my two favourite poetry books that I read this year were Hard Water by Jean Sprackland and The Tree House by Kathleen Jamie.
