So far, the list is:
- The Minotaur Takes A Cigarette Break by Steven Sherrill, suggested by Elaine via the blog. "I'm fairly evangelical about this book."
- The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson, suggested by Loki via the blog.
- The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler, suggested by Matt ("galactichand") via the blog. "It's good stuff."
- At Swim, Two Boys by Jamie O'Neill, suggested by Richard via the blog. "The book I recommend to everyone ... It's poetic, convoluted, heartfelt and beautiful."
- The Dictionary of the Khazars by Milorad Pavic, suggested by Patrick via the blog. "I, of course, recommend [it]. You can borrow my copy; it's hard to find otherwise."
- Palimpsest by Cat Valente, or "if you don't mind YA cooties", Liar by Justine Larbalestier, suggested by Danika via the blog. (As per my original rules, it's only one book per person, so I'll find out a bit about these and make a decision.)
- Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson, suggested by Jessica on Twitter. "As long as none of the books are Twilight that's fine." (I shouldn't mention that I'm doing a marathon of the films this weekend then...?)
- The Voice of Seven Sparrows by Harry Stephen Keeler, suggested by Rob on Twitter. "Awesome book. You'll love it."
So there are still a few slots left. I should say though that this might not be the final list; if I find out one of these is a twelve hundred page tome, I reserve the right to put it off until the year is over!
