message 1: by Hayes (new)

Hayes I haven't read any of these! Yet...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I found this helpful in refreshing my memory: http://www.goodreads.com/book/popular... .


message 3: by Myles (new)

Myles Deleted The Lives of Christopher Chant (1977) and Bag of Bones (1998)


message 4: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Deleted Last Seen Wearing (1976).


message 5: by Ben (new)

Ben A Prayer for Owen Meany was published in 1989. I just added it to that list. And yet everyone voted for it on the 1988 list. Am I missing something here, or should I delete it from the 1988 list????


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Everything I've seen indicates that 1989 is correct.


message 7: by Ben (new)

Ben Deleted A Prayer for Owen Meany. Pls refer to the 1989 list instead.


message 8: by Kamas (new)

Kamas Kirian I think The Five Bells and Bladebone came out in 1987, not 1988.
