Hi there;
I am happy to see that several of your favorites are also favorites of mine, especially: Pride and Prejudice! Although some of the others that I listed here are not favorites, I especially enjoyed them or they taught me something...I think I will try to read some of the other books on your list.
Tess of the D'Urbervilles/loved it
The Book of Negroes/loved it although a little disappointed with the ending
The Cellist of Sarajevo/reading it now and love the characters
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time/learned so much although I didn't love it, I couldn't put it down.
The Glass Castle/amazing and sad read
The Great Gatsby/such insight into the era
The Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society/an interesting and fun one

Reading your comments I just now realized I didn't add any titles to this list in 2014. That's kind of sad. Hopefully 2015 will be a better reading year but it does take a rather magnificent book to make it onto the list. Thanks for stopping by!
