Cathy,

Green Eggs and Ham can actually only count as the extra point for being a children's book. Sorry about that.

Tess Holthe | 13 comments Amy,

I LOVED Agathat Christie and went through an A. Christie roll for awhile. I still can't figure out why her mysteries are so memorable than others!

I see you listed Dead Tossed Waves, does that mean you read Forest? That book was so un-put-down-able. Very gripping. Can't wait to read that either.

Amy (aaammmyyy) Haven't updated a while but I read a batch of reaaal good books recently!
BIRTHMARKED was really good; it was similar to The Hunger Games- dystopian, girl against government, suspense, superb world building, the works :)
THE POISON THRONE was a fantasy that reminded me of Tamora Pierce and Kristin Cashore- always a big fat PLUS in my book!
EYES LIKE STARS is whimsical, beautiful, surreal, imaginative, seductive, and ingenious... yeah I loved it :)
And LEVIATHAN was slow in the start but then picked up and I totally devoured the last 2/3 of it!

So- for two of the May books, the 1st and 2nd place winners picks. For the 3rd book, the 3rd place winner picks the category and we vote?

Is that correct?
