Happy reading in 2010.


  1. That is a great selection of books, some of them are really interesting!

  2. Great picks! The Long Song catches my eye!

  3. Thanks a lot Sandra, now I need a larger TBR notebook! LOL

    Here is my pick:


  4. I love your picks. You read so many interesting books!!!

  5. Great list, nice variety. I'm curious about Chef.

  6. The JOHN BANVILLE, of course..and much has been said regarding the Sebastian Faulks (though i'll believe the hype after i've read the book)..and, irony of ironies..i just got the first Simon Serrailler title (The Various Haunts of Men) today....can we play the X-Files theme now???

    anyway, just stopped by to say hello

  7. Interesting books to wait for :) I liked all the covers of the books you have mentioned. They are beautiful! Nice to know that the new John Banville book 'The Infinities' is coming out soon. He writes such beautiful prose! Looking forward to it.

  8. I like this list. "The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott" looks interesting. My waiting pic is here: www.bit.ly/c50smm

  9. I've been enjoying reading some of your reviews.

    I have an award for you,


  10. I have Even the Dogs to read for LibraryThing; I'll look forward to your review!

  11. I want to read the Jon Mcgregor as well, but the one I am DYING to read is the new Olga Grushin. I loved, loved, loved her first novel and this one also sounds similar to another Russian novel I read last year, The Queue by Vladimir Sorokin. So I can't wait to get my hands on The Line (and I didn't know it had an alternate title of The Concert Ticket, thanks for the heads up!)

  12. I looked long and hard at The Long Song on Amazon Vine today and then finally decided against it and chose a different book instead. I just need to keep reminding myself that just because I pick one book, that doesn't mean that those I do NOT choose cease to exist ;-)

    Great book list!
