Tonight, author Deb Caletti will be chatting with readers via readergirlz.

Today, she lists her favorite reads of the year.

Young adult pick: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie: "He's a fellow Seattle-ite, and I read the book cover-to-cover with barely a pause. [It] stayed with me."

Two memoirs she couldn't put down: Truth and Beauty by Anne Patchett and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

Two pieces of literary fiction: In the Lake of the Woods by Tim O'Brien and The Center of Everything by Laura Moriarty

More fiction: "I also loved The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank so much that I promptly read her next one, The Wonder Spot. Both delightful."

Non-fiction: "I read a great deal of nonfiction - mostly about psychology and human behavior. I am currently reading Love at Goon Park, which is the story of Harry Harlow's studies on human affection and is very interesting."
