Hi - you've got an interesting list there. You should enjoy the Year of Wonders - I've now gone on and read all Geraldine Brooks' books. Dragonkeeper is good as well - in fact I think I'll put book 4 into my series category! I'm currently reading Possession by A S Byatt.
I purchased Possession a while back and I am cheating abit because I am saving it for next year so that I can add it onto my 1% reading challenge of 1001 books you can read before you die :) ... But I am looking forward to reading it ... You can catch our bookblog at Exclusivebooks.blogspot.com .....
Yup, I also recommend Year of Wonders. For some reason it had been sitting on my shelf way too long as well, and I'm really glad I finally got around to it.
Some excellent reading in your Classic section. Enjoy it! I'm thinking of a Classic Reread section next year.
I'm another one who loved Year of Wonders. I was afraid I wouldn't because historical fiction is not generally my thing, but I absolutely loved it.
You've got some really good children's/YA books on there too. And I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one with a LDS book category!
Oh, I followed your lead and signed up for the What's in a Name 2 challenge. Should be fun!
Thanks everyone ... Looking forward to getting started now ... I have enjoyed quite alot of books this year so looking forward to finding new favourites ....
You have some great books lined up. I'll be interested to read what you think of them in due course.
It was good to see your blog too. Did you know that there is a shared blog for the 999 challenge at http://the999challenge.blogspot.com/ ? The thread has fallen to the bottom of the page so you may not have noticed it. Just leave a message with VictoraPL if you are interested in contrbuting.
Thanks for the link FleurFisher I had send email a couple of days ago and I am now added ... Hurray !!!
Oh yes I love your classics selection - you'll have a great time reading those!
I am so looking forward to getting stuck into the list but I am being a good girl and not starting until I should ..... lol .... My books my change as I read them before Jan if I cannot wait ... lol
