The Hound of the Baskervilles (Penguin Classics)
1.  The Hound of the Baskervilles (Penguin Classics) by Arthur Conan Doyle
The list author says:
  "January- It took me about the first 5 chapters to get into the story, but it picked up rapidly from there.  I loved this edition as well, the introduction was fascinating, as were the notes in the back."
$8.65   Used & New from: $0.06

Eat, Pray, Love
2.  Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
The list author says:
  "February-Listened to audiobook.  This book was frustrating, entertaining, and ultimately rewarding.  Gilbert narrates her story, and does a pretty fine job of it."

Aristocrats: Caroline, Emily, Louisa, and Sarah Lennox, 1740-1832
3.  Aristocrats: Caroline, Emily, Louisa, and Sarah Lennox, 1740-1832 by S. K. Tillyard
The list author says:
  "February-  I enjoyed this very much.  I saw the BBC series first, which was very good, and it made me interested in these sisters' very fascinating lives.  The last chapter was a litany of death and illness, and got a bit depressing.  Overall, great book."

The Hollow Kingdom: Book I -- The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy
4.  The Hollow Kingdom: Book I -- The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy by Clare B. Dunkle
The list author says:
  "March-I enjoyed this book immensely.  It takes the old folk tale of goblins stealing human brides, and turns it on its head.  The author keeps the story moving, and it really is like three books in one.  Highly Recommended."
$7.96   Used & New from: $0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (78 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon
5.  James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon by Julie Phillips
The list author says:
  "March-This biography was about a sci-fi writer that I previously knew little about.  I found Phillips' treatment of her subject to be objective, and compelling.  I am now eager to read more works by Phillips and Tiptree."

6.  The Dalemark Quartet, Volume 1: Cart and Cwidder and Drowned Ammet by Diana Wynne Jones

The Stone Diaries: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)
7.  The Stone Diaries: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) by Carol Shields
The list author says:
  "April-This book is considered a modern classic, and I must agree.  The author uses a technique that lends a voice to different characters within the protagonists life.  In this manner the reader is able to see the "truths" of her life from all angles.  Great read."
$12.95   Used & New from: $0.01

Dead Until Dark  (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Book 1)
8.  Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Book 1) by Charlaine Harris

$6.30   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,317 customer reviews) | 17 customer discussions

9.  The Way of Light (The Chronicles of Magravandias, Book 3) by Storm Constantine
The list author says:

Wild Seed
12.  Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler

The Night Watch
14.  The Night Watch by Sarah Waters

The Forest of Hands and Teeth
15.  The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
The list author says:
  "May-This book was just okay.  It was kind of repetitive with the whole zombie thing. I get the idea that zombies are trying to eat you, can we get on with the narrative?"

Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression
16.  Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression by Mildred Armstrong Kalish
The list author says:
  "May-I liked this book as a reflection of life on a rural farm during the 1930s.  I do think that the auther got repetitive with certain of her phrases.Still, a very good read, and the chapters were almost like little essays.  I would have liked more information about her life after the farm as well."

Close Kin: Book II -- The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy
17.  Close Kin: Book II -- The Hollow Kingdom Trilogy by Clare B. Dunkle
