  1. We only read 1 book in common this year:

    No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay

  2. Great list! I read Night a while back. Powerful book.

  3. Beth F - thanks! And a happy new year to you as well :-)

    Rebecca - thanks, and I totally agree! That's why I still don't have a review up. I think I have to read it again to do the book justice...
