“Book Buzz” Books Which Did Not Disappoint

I published a series of Book Buzz posts last spring where I highlighted books which I thought looked wonderful – books I was anticipating, and for which I had high hopes. I did not get to read all those books, but I managed to read several of them (and I have several of them still in my stacks which I hope to get to in 2012). Happily, most of these books lived up to the hype. I hope to publish more book buzz posts in 2012…in the meantime, here are the ones which did not disappoint:

From this post (Highly Anticipated):

River of Smoke by Amitav Ghosh (I will finish this one today – watch for my review!)

From this post (Debut Authors):

We The Animals by Justin Torres (read my review)

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (read my review)

From this post (Fall Reads):

You Are My Only by Beth Kephart (read my review)

The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides (read my review)

Did you read any of the books on my Book Buzz posts (links below)? Did they live up to the hype?

    It’s wonderful when books live up to their hype.

    The only one I read is Beth Kephardt’s book, but it definitely lived up to the hype. I have a few others that I cannot wait to read this year!
