Tournament of Books 2013

My progress on attempting to read all the 2013 ToB contenders  before March 1, 2013.

I stumbled on the Tournament of Books in 2012 through a post on Citizen Reader's blog. All but four of the books were available from my local library, which was helpful. I couldn't have managed it otherwise! Check out the Morning News site: for some of the smartest, most honest and funniest commentary on these 16 books published last year. 

  1. HHhH by Laurent Binet (currently reading)
  2. The Round House by Louise Erdrich (checked out from the library)
  3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (read in 2012)
  4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  5. Arcadia by Lauren Groff
  6. How Should a Person Be? by Sheila Heti
  7. May We Be Forgiven by A.M. Homes
