Are there some on this list that you think we simply can't pass up? If so, here's hoping it gets voted in! We are trying to narrow this down to about 12, so only a few will get eliminated. It's always fun to see what pulls out ahead!


  1. We have a great list to choose from don't we? I was having a hard time voting!

  2. I highly recommend Wonder and Memoirs of a Geisha. Both will move you. Everyone I know who's read Wonder says it's the best book they've ever read and I agree.

    1. Page: We've actually bagged our current month's book and have decided to read Wonder NOW instead! :)

  3. Lots of goodies on there. I look forward to seeing what you end up with!

  4. This is a great list, Suey! I've always wanted to read The Year of Magical Thinking. And Wonder, too. It will be interesting to see what the final list looks like!

  5. We read WONDER in my club and had a WONDERful discussion. It is a very touching book.

  6. looks like a great list to make your picks from. I just finished "All the Light We Cannot See". I liked it a lot.
