I'm waiting for the paperback version of The Help to be released (I think it was already supposed to have but Amazon is still listing it as "not yet.") I'm behind the times on that one.

Here's my list:

OK> I added three of yours to my TBR list even though it's already totally unmanageable. I only want you to read My Hands Came Away Red. I think you will like it.

I loved The Help too! Sarah's Key is on my shelf waiting to be read later this year. Someone sent me the audiobook of Room a few weeks ago, and a part of me really wanted to listen to it, but it's just such a heavy topic for a novel, so I traded it in for an Amazon credit. Maybe I'll give it a go in the future . . .

I definitely need to get organized. Maybe I'll produce a list next year.
