  1. Oh, what did you think of The Bean Trees? (I'm assuming the un-linked titles are the ones you read but didn't blog about). I haven't read it yet but it's on my wish list.

  2. Kathy - I liked Bean Trees. It was an earlier novel (her first?) of Kingsolver's so was pretty different to The Poisonwood Bible but still very good. Good one to have on the wish-list :)

  3. Great list. I read Beneath a Marble Sky earlier this year for my book club and was surprised by the story. I thought it would be awful because of the cover and it was pretty good.

  4. Avid Reader - Thanks! Beneath a marble sky was a book club read for me too! Also thought it would be 'meh' but was happily surprised. Admittedly not a stand out book but a good read :)
