My to-read list just grew with all of those end-of-the-year best-of lists.

Post your suggestions here.

I'm going with The Passage (The Passage, #1) by Justin Cronin .

Patricia (leviicorpus) | 2 comments In light of the non end of the word, what about The Dog Stars by Peter Heller (The Dog Stars by Peter Heller)?

Rosalyn (rosalynhummel) | 7 comments I second the Dog Stars!


message 4: by Jess (new)

Jess | 13 comments +1 for The Dog Stars. It sounds incredible!


message 5: by Justyna (new)

Justyna (blaire88) | 5 comments I would like to suggest The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. I'm planning on reading it myself in January.


message 6: by forestsprite (new)

forestsprite | 10 comments Does anyone want to do "War and Peace"? Maybe not for one of the monthly reads, but as a side thing? Or for January, haha, depends how ambitious people are. That or "Anna Karenina".


Alicia (is beyond tired of your *ish) (ostensiblya) | 71 comments The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker It has been on a lot of best of lists, and it has been taunting me from my TBR for a long time now.


message 8: by María (new)

María (deepfriedhoney) | 16 comments The Passage was incredible. The Twelve wasn't as good, but still good. Can't wait for City of Mirrors.

And um, I have no suggestions.

I'd be in for either or both...maybe not both for January, though. lol

I'd be up for doing a series of classics this year. Maybe one a quarter?

I read Anna Karenina a long time ago and it took me forever! It's one of the best books I've ever read, but it was intense.

Sarah (villacinna) | 6 comments I like the idea of adding classics. There's a few I've been wanting to read but haven't been motivated too. I still fear them after being forced to read them in school. So hopefully reading them with a group will motivate me.

message 16: by Kristin (new)

Kristin Triglia (kristinrose) Maybe Warm Bodies or Beautiful Creatures since the movie versions come out in Feb?

Wigs (wigsnatcher) | 556 comments Mod
we already did warm bodies last year actually, but most people didn't like it!
