What are your favorites?


  1. I've only read one off each of your lists. Wow. Where have I been?


  2. Great list, Suey! I've only read Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet from your lists. Several others though are on my TBR pile.

    I had hoped to read The Road in 2009 but didn't get around to it. Maybe I should make it my first book this year.

    Have a Happy New Year!

  3. You have a few i'm interesting in for sure.

    Here is mine

  4. Great list! I've read Potato Peel Pie Society and loved it so much and am thinking of reading Blind Assassin next year. Happy New Year!

  5. Britt... you better get busy! :)

    Literary: It appears I better read more of Cormac McCarthy. I guess I like him or something.

    Marce: Thanks for dropping by. You have a great list too!

    Amused: I hope you enjoy The Blind Assassin too.

  6. I love the lists! I wish I could keep track of everyone's lists and read them, but really my TBR is already pretty ridiculous.

  7. I made a list and it ended up being 50 books... lol

  8. Lock and Key made your favorites, I have got to get around to reading it. Ditto the potato pie thing, I saw that on a lot of lists. I own both of them, so it wouldn't be hard to get my hands on them!
