I love to make lists. A strange thing to love, but I do. One list that makes me particularly happy is a list of books I want to read. At the beginning of a new year I like to check out books that interest me. Some are books that I didn't have time to read last year when it seemed like everyone I knew was reading and talking about them. Some are books I stumbled across, and others are by authors I like. I have a partial list made to start off 2011, and here they are!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck
Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
The Escape Artist by Diane Chamberlain
Widow’s Tale by Maureen Miller
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
I would like to know if any of you have read any of these books and what you thought of them. And if you have recommendations for books I might not have come across yet, please tell me about them. I have a long year ahead of me and I love to read! Thanks!
