  1. Great list - I can vouch for many of these recommendations... the ones there that I read this year also ended up on my best of 2011 list, especially Okay for Now and Let the Great World Spin.

    And several of the ones I haven't read are already on my 2012 to read list (why didn't I borrow Real Life & Liars for vacation?!)
