Zaz | 3034 comments Welcome! :)

I'll read too Green Tomatoes and some other of your choices are on my 2016 TBR.
In 2015, I read Bird Box (enjoyed it a lot), Ruby Red (pleasant YA) and Animal Farm (well written but I didn't like the topic).
I really like the title of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. The reviews are mixed, so I'm interested in your opinion :)
"You" sounds a bit creepy and unusual, I'm now curious about it!

Peter | 0 comments Great List! A few I'm reading this year and a few I've already read.

Excited to see The Lies of Locke Lamora on your list! It's a great book, and I really enjoyed the first two books. Book three in the series is on my list this year. I found both of the first two took a while to read because there is a lot of set up in the first half of the book so things move a little slowly, but there is also a lot of character development that occurs too. Overall a very good series with interesting characters.

Also, I love that you have The Thing Beneath the Bed by Rothfuss on your list too! It's on my list in the same spot. Anything by Rothfuss is incredible, so I'm looking forward to reading it, but I'm having some trouble tracking a copy of it down.

Francesca | 786 comments You have a great list here! We share quite a few books in common and, in some cases, even just the authors. I've also already read a couple of the books on you list and they're all ones that I loved. Looks like you're going to have a great challenge ahead of you!

Katie | 2369 comments The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake has such a good title, and I found the premise fascinating, but it disappointed me so!


message 6: by Jill (new)

Jill Tool | 42 comments I'm reading several of the same books as you. It will be interesting to see what we both think of the books.
