MY TWO CENTS: Oh, these books! Beautiful inside and out. I can personally attest to this for two of them (click titles for reviews). This isn't the first Awards appearance for The Grave Tender, for which I cannot sing high enough praises. Lyrical and lingering; deep and disturbing. And there's Nowhere Near, with all those completely unique stories and characters...characters that have stayed with me nearly a year after I met them...characters who haunt me and amuse me and fascinate me. I didn't read Loving Luther, but I hosted a guest review on my blog, and it made me want to read the book even more. I know our LSBBT bloggers know their stuff, so I WILL be reading these other titles, too.
The Grave Tender by Eliza Maxwell
Loving Luther by Allison Pittman
A Good Girl by Johnnie Bernhard
Nowhere Near by Teddy Jones
Before the Rain Falls by Camille DiMaio
Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Davidson Politano
MY TWO CENTS: Interesting that there is some overlap in these titles from the Best Literary Fiction Awards. I again am seeing that I have some holes in my reading categories as the only book I read of these titles was Almost a Minyan, which is making its third award appearance with this one. FABULOUSLY inspiring and utterly unique. I know several of these authors have new books coming or just published, so I need to get on the stick with these.
