Back-to-School Book Week!

Vintage Chica is having a Back-to-School Book Week! (Aug 30-Sept 3) Here's the run down:

Monday: Your favorite craft book(s)
Tuesday: Your favorite cookbook(s)
Wednesday: Your favorite fiction book
Thursday: Your favorite non-fiction book
Friday: Free Day! Any book you think deserves mentioning!

My favorite fiction book is really difficult.  I read entirely too much and have since I was a girl.  I read well over 100 books a year, some times as many as 150, so choosing a fave is really difficult.  Here's some not to miss.  All the Pretty Horses, by Cormac McCarthy.  Mystic River by Dennis Lehane.  Work Song by Ivan Doing, The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins.  Plus, an unreleased novel you'll love, Room by Emma Donoghue.  It's amazing, and I think it'll be her break-out novel.  She's already being mentioned for awards for this book.  Room will be release on 9/13/2010.
