My Favorite Contemporary Novels

A Listmania! list by Indigo Girl "indigo girl" (Chicago)
The list author says: "At the conclusion of each year I make it known to family, friends and co-workers what my favorite novels were from that year (not necessarily that the books were published that year, rather I read them over the past twelve months). The process has gotten more efficient with the rise of Facebook. Here I list my all time favorites for everyone to see. These really are the fantastic! The three reasons I read: entertainment, education and escapism. I promise you, these books will fulfill something for you on all three fronts. You're likely to be astonished at some point, too. Read on!!!!"
