Best time of the year ....

And I do not mean Christmas.


I have read three of the books.

Gone Girl
Arcadia
Bringing up the Bodies

plus Billy Lynn's Long Half-time Walk which is in the playoff round.

The Orphan Master's Son is on my shelf.

Where'd You Go Bernadette is on my library wait list.

The Fault in Our Stars is on my Christmas list.

I have never heard of six of the books.  I'll have lots of fun with the book store gift card my mother-in-law got me for Christmas.  

I was right on the money last year with my pick of The Sister's Brothers ... this year?  I'll get back to you.  Early choice is Arcadia because I loved it.  But I am not sure it will be GOOD enough to make the finals.


By the way, in case anyone has wondered where I've been.  Funny thing happened on the way to 45.  I needed glasses. 

I thought I was too grief-stricken to read. I was pretty grief-stricken and mildly depressed.  I thought I would get over it.  I thought I would pull-through the pain into the sunlight of reading.  The sunlight came out and I still couldn't read.  Turns out, I just needed glasses.  Two or three pairs of cute readers later and I am back in the books.

Predictions anyone?

Instead of publish I hit delete. Now that I read the comments and am happy to be back! Amy, I'll email you.

Oh man! What a wonderful list of books. I hadn't heard of the Tournament of Books. Liked and downloaded Beautiful Ruins.

Glad you figured out the glasses thing. I've been wearing readers for quite a while now. Makes a world of difference.
