  5. It's difficult to choose just one of those books that interests me. Many sound great! I'm interested in The Vanishing Point because I love reading about the Colonies, but The Last Tsarina sounds fascinating too because I've loved the history around the Romanovs since I was a little girl. Thanks for sharing this list! utgal2004[at]yahoo[dot]com

  62. This is a great giveaway idea! So many great books to choose from, it is so hard to decide! I think I will go with Left to Tell, though. I think it sounds very interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow. These are some great choices. If I have to pick just one, my top choice would definitely be The Last Tsarina by Carolly Erickson. Though, I'm also extremely interested in Women of Magdalene by Rosemary Poole-Carter and Beowulf: a New Translation by Seamus Heaney. Thanks!

  64. What a great idea - I'd pick The Last Tsarina by Carolly Erickson. Meant to read this when it came out and now would be a great time to follow thru on that. Several of the 5 star books I have read and you've given us a great list to consider when picking out both our next reads and gift books for others.

  65. I left a comment on Pratchett's Thief of Time.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I left a comment on Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff.
    When that book was offered to me, I hesitated wanting something light rather than religious. boys will be boys and this is the rest of the story not covered in the Gospels. Lighthearted but not disrespectful.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Make it Radical Womanhood for me. Sounds awesome!

    Love your list too.
    WOW!
