  2. We really debated Will Grayson for a time but I was the only who had read it all the way through so we decided to table our decision on it until the other two gals had a chance to read it. I do love the book, however.

  3. This is a great list. There are a bunch on here that I haven't read yet, but I definitely need to; for example, The Sky is Everywhere- I hear it's awesome. I need to move that up on my TBR pile. I can't wait to see which books make the official list in January!
