Laura Lippman's four favorite reads of 2014

At Omnivoracious Laura Lippman tagged four favorite books she read this year, including:
My Salinger Year by Joanna Rakoff

...I'm not the biggest Salinger fan (I love maybe five of the Nine Stories, find A Catcher in the Rye painfully over-rated) but Rakoff's memoir of her time as an assistant at a literary agency is really about that particular post-college time when one is counting pennies and wondering if life has truly started yet.
Read about the other books on the list.
