…the July/August 2012 Edition of Bookmarks Magazine. My literary fiction book list is included in the Have You Read? column!

Back in November 2011 I submitted my list – then waited and heard nothing back. So imagine my surprise when someone in my Yahoo book club group let me know the list was featured in the upcoming issue of the magazine. My list includes books by Jesmyn Ward, Michael Crummey, Goldie Goldblum, Louise Erdrich, Bruce Machart, Peter Geye, Dianne Warren, Karen Connelly, Ru Freeman, and Joyce Hinnefeld. You can find my full reviews by visiting the review page here on my blog, or pick up a copy of Bookmarks when it hits newsstands next month to read the blurbs.

I earned a year’s subscription for submitting my list. What about you? What books would make YOUR list for this column?

    I’m heading out on vacation tomorrow and I’m counting the the airport having a copy of this magazine.

      • Wendy on June 20, 2012 at 12:26

      Melanie – I don’t think this issue is on newsstands yet (I subscribe so mine came early). I believe issues come out close to the first of the month for each issue (so this one would be close to July 1st).

  3. How wonderful! I’m not sure what would go on my list. I haven’t read any of the books on yours. 🙁

    This is seriously cool! I’ve read the Erdrich but not the others.

  4. Congratulations! It is a fantastic selection too – I especially loved Salvage the Bones.
