    I haven’t read a single one on your lists. I think I would have trouble narrowing some of the categories down to just 5.

      Carol – it was definitely hard! I could have listed a lot more for each category. :)

    Yes I’m a bit interested in reading The Martian too. From what I’m hearing it looks to be a fun read. Enjoy your books!

      Kathy – I know! I’m thinking I need to slip it in between a couple review copies.

    I am glad you joined in, too! :) It was fun. I should have just made lists because adding pictures took me forever. haha

      Kelly – I loved looking at your pictures, and was going to do it that way, too, but got lazy. :)

    This post just reminded me that I love Fforde’s Thursday Next series, and that I have only read two (maybe three) of them. I really need to pick those back up someday.

      Trisha – me, too! Although it’s been so long since I read the first few, I may have to reread them first.

    OK first of all, read Eleanor and Park NOW. Second, if you read State of Wonder, listen to the audio. Hope Davis is amazing. And I am jumping out of my skin because I didn’t know that Maria Semple had a new book!

      Sandy – This One is Mine isn’t new; it was published in 2010. I had added it to my wish list after loving Bernadette. :)
