It's a bit early for a list like this, but as I have no time at the moment to read, this list will have to do.
1. The Emperor's Children by Claire Messud
2.Lost Nation by Jeffrey Lent
3. On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan
4. Baker Towers by Jennifer Haigh
5. On Beauty by Zadie Smith
And not necessarily in this order!
And talking of books, I just discovered Cornflowers' blog, which is all about reading and crafting!
