Tell Me What to Read: Round 6

A day late here on this, because I just couldn't wait any extra moment to tell you how much I loved New York. And also relive that waffle at Max Brenner. Regardless, time to tell me what to read in December. This will surely be the book I take home with me and read on the plane flights between Boston and the west coast.   

It can be any genre, any age level, and have been published last week or three hundred years ago. You can pick it because it's a book that everyone should read or because it changed your life or because it is great literature or just because it entertained you. You can DEFINITELY suggest the same book you suggested last month.

Here's how it goes:

  1. Comment with the title of one book you think I should read (any book you want). One title only, please, lest my brain explode.
  2. I'll select one comment at random and announce it on the blog later this week
  3. On the off-chance that I've already read the book you select, I'll contact you and ask for a follow-up suggestion (make sure there is a way to contact you either by blog or email).
  4. I'll get a copy of the book and read it by the end of December.
  5. I'll write a review of it here. Even if I hate the book, I will not hate you.
And. . .go!

  1. I am going to suggest The Help by Kathryn Stockett again....same as last month. I really think it wins my own person "book of the year" award.

  5. I just read The Invisible Wall by Harry Bernstein. He was born in England around WWI and it is the story of his Jewish family and his older sister falling in love with a Christian boy.

    Turns out, there is a sequel!

  14. The Lacuna
    by Barbara Kingsolver
    It's her newest. I'd love to hear your review--turns out it's not quite what I expected. I kind of like it when that happens.
    (Lexiloo--I'm reading that book! Glad to hear there's a sequel!)

  29. I just finished reading "The Magician's Elephant" by Kate DiCamillo. She wrote "The Tale of Despereaux". It's a quick read - perfect for December. Although a little predictable, I still liked it. You've probably already read it though because you're cool like that...

  30. gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson. It's one of my favorite books of all times, so if you don't like it I may have to cry and stop reading your blog for a week. But no worries.

    again.
