  1. I have only read Persuasion, The Welsh Girl, and Atonement from your list, I think ... I liked the movie version of Atonement better than the book, too, it's a little tough to get through.

    Also, yes, I liked "The Boys Are Back" too - the little boy in it is SO adorable :).

  2. I like that you leave a TBA for a couple categories in case something comes up that may peak your interest. Good ideas.
