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.

Nov 19, 2008, 12:18am Top

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.

Nov 19, 2008, 8:25am Top

Some excellent reading in your Classic section. Enjoy it! I'm thinking of a Classic Reread section next year.

Nov 19, 2008, 5:54pm Top

Again for Year of Wonders.. I read it after I finished March which I couldn't put down, the haven't shut up about either one since. And I frequently recommend both to patrons. I think I sent a copy of Year of Wonders to someone today.

Nov 19, 2008, 6:17pm Top

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.

Nov 19, 2008, 11:06pm Top

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!
