  2. What an interesting list! I think just about any one would be a good choice!



  3. Wow, we have quite a few in common on our lists. I recently read The Bell by Iris Murdoch and enjoyed her ability to get inside the mind of her characters. Hope you enjoy whatever is chosen.

    Here’s my list:



  4. I absolutely adore I Capture the Castle and Invitation to the Waltz, so I will hope for one of them to be selected. Happy reading!
