Tournament of Books Shortlist 2016

The TOB 2016 shortlist is here! The shortlist is here!

Happy days!

So, I might be just a WEE bit excited that I now have over 12 books to read before March (ahem... I should probably say try to read). I've only read THREE books from the list, last year I definitely had a leg up. Here is the official list:

I've read so far: (only 1 reviewed)
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
The Story of my Teeth by Valeria Luiselli

Currently Reading:
The Tsar of Love and Techno by Anthony Marra (I have a signed copy from BEA - Shame on me!)
The Sellout by Paul Beatty (started the audiobook yesterday and I am loving the narrator)

The Others:
Ban En Banlieue by Bahnu Kapil (just purchased through RJ Julia - this was hard to get!)
The Turner House by Angela Flournoy (bought for my kindle during an online sale)
Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf
The Book of Aron by Jim Shepard
The Invaders by Karolina Waclawiak
Bats of the Republic by Thomas Zachary Dodson (Ordered this already - can't wait!)
The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen
The New World by Chris Adrian
Oreo by Fran Ross
The Whites by Harry Brandt

It's a little too early for me to be doing predictions but I'm obviously a HUGE fan of A Little Life. Now off to chip away at that list.

Happy Reading & Happy TOB,
