Victoria "How Dare the Sun Rise" should be on this list.


message 2: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart It might be a little early, but are you going to create the 2019 list soon? I already have several titles in mind!

Good morning -
I hope all is well.
Yes, I am planning on doing a 2109 list - I have a little over 20 bks so far but was trying to wait until October to put up the 2019 list. :)

It is still so hot the South that I cannot believe that 2019 is just a couple of months away.


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Good to hear! No rush on the list. Can't believe 2019 is so close, either.

Here is the link to the 2019 list:

Looking forward to see what you add!

Rainbowheart Thanks for the link! I just voted. :)


message 7: by Ella (new)

Ella The Space Between Us is a good book, but it was published back in the early 2000s, I believe.
