Humbert The Street of the Three Beds
by Roser Caminals

A literary mystery set in turn-of-the-century Barcelona, the author's hometown. The city and its underground are beautifully recreated, with a polished style and a gripping fast paced narrative. It would make a great movie.


message 2: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis MJ, I am seeing some memoirs and in fact nearly threw some in myself, but your subscript clearly says novels. Do you want to allow memoirs, biographies, and autobiographies also, or should they be removed?


message 3: by Miss M (new)

Miss M Author Maggie Spence says:

"Okay. We all know that Goodreads has a gazillion members but the forums are fragmented and hard to target. But those listopia lists are an interesting source of new customers. What if we all help each other out? You only need a few votes to move up on their lists and maybe we can get each other on the map. Here's my plan: Everyone list the name of their book in this thread and what Listopia List they would like to be featured on. I think you should only pick one for now to see how this works. The rest of us add the book to our To-Read lists on GoodReads. (If you aren't a member, you should be!) Then we go to the Listopia list and vote for it. So simple. And you really have to keep checking back to this thread and help out everyone who names their book and list. I'll start. I've already chosen my list, it's Smart Summer Reads and the name of my book is Vardin Village. It already has one vote so you just need to add yours! Then I'll do you!
...
LET'S DO THiS!"

Barbara ♥~Lindt Ninja~♥ (Careerist Gangster™) While they're unlikely to ever make the first page, I would advise anyone making a buying decision based on this list to check out Miss M's link to look at the authors involved in the vote swapping. There are two of them I see on the third page already that I guarantee would never be there on their own merits.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I see the sock drawer is out in the top five again.

Holy smokes Batman, that's one drawer full of socks for a book that isn't even out yet.

Booklovinglady It says "These are terrific, beautifully written novels that will entertain and leave you thinking". I'm not sure my choices will always 'entertain' but they certainly meet the other criteria :-)
