Of all those WP books, I've read one - Hope's Boy.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is my favorite book of 2008. Move that book to the top of your TBR pile!


Goldengrove is a fabulous coming-of-age story. I thought it was excellent. Prose seems to clearly remember what it was like to be a teenager, and she wrote so well, I kept wondering if something like the events in the book had happened to her because the voice was so perfect. Cost is a very good book also. It gave me quite a bit of insight into heroin addiction and how it affects not just individuals but families. And people from all social stratospheres. I highly recommend both of these books.


I can vouch for Cost, Goldengrove, Olive Kitteridge, and The House on Fortune Street...try to work them in. They're great reads!


I loved the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society when I read it. It shouldn't take very long to read, because the story just sucks you in. I read Songs for the Missing, and while generally I liked it, I wouldn't recommend it quite so highly. Some of the characters were really frustrating, and then, with such a sad premise, it was hard to get into.


I read Olive and Guernsey. Liked them both - differently. Guernsey was my favorite reading experience of 2008.
