Comments

I haven't read any of these, but I see several that have been tempting me all year...like Room, the "Rose" books, and, of course, Persuasion. A Jane Austen book I haven't managed to read yet.

Persuasion was my favorite Austen book. I keep seeing Unbroken on many people's blogs -- I wasn't drawn to its description, but so many people like it, maybe I should check it out.
I've read Persuasion also.
