Oh I so loved ROOM!!!!! OMG, isn't that the best book ever? I loved Bonesetter's Daughter too! Amy Tan is such a great writer -- I've loved all her books. I have to look up some of these others. So with The Leftovers, is the whole ascending thing too dominant? I don't know, I keep hesitating to read it because of that subject matter. But I love Tom Perrota's novels. Hmmmm. Loved Snow Flower and the Secret Fan but haven't read the Shanghai Girls yet. I should! Fun post!! Happy New Year!
