LibraryCin | 8718 comments Thank you for this! :-)

I don't think I've read any of them, but i have the Donoghue on my tbr. I do not plan to read the Mandel, however.

Booknblues | 6324 comments I have th Donoghue on my TBR and decided against the Mandel after a few poor reviews here.

The others, I will have to take a look at. I'm sure I will manage to add to my TBR.

Robin P | 1919 comments Just read The Glass Hotel, very different from Station Eleven. I still liked it but it's not particularly unique.

LibraryCin | 8718 comments I commented only on the most popular authors. I have, of course, heard of some of the others, but I don't know enough about their books listed here to know if I'll plan to read them or not. The Thomas King book seems the most likely.

Same. The Pull of the Stars caught my attention first. I really liked Donoghue's Room, but I haven't read any of her other books. I was also put off by the reviews of the Mandel book, but I would have considered it for the economics tag.

Did you notice if any of these might fit the Animals tag?

I've been thinking about you with the fires in your region. I hope you're well.

Nancy, doing well. More fires over the weekend, in Napa and one north of us. Air quality is not as good as last week because of it. It never seems to stop.

I didn't notice if any of the books were about animals I did pick up Five Little Indians, as it is on sale at Amazon for $1.99 and I thought it looked interesting.
