  8. I've been toying with The Cook...should I? Shouldn't I? Reviews seem to suggest that it is a true original, so it's probably a 'should' - will look forward to your review.

  13. Americanah is on my list of must read books for 2013 as well. I've been stalking the publisher hoping for an ARC or galley copy sometime soon.

  14. Adichie has a new book coming out? Squee!

    I love TOo Kill a Mockingbird & am also a fan of Kincaid. I found So Long A Letter to be quite interesting and a nice one-sitting book. :)
