Top 10 Books with Stellar Reviews

According to BookBrowse.com here is theTop Ten list of books which are both by well-known authors and receiving stellar reviews:Have you read any, or do you plan to? If so what are your thoughts?

I plan to read Love and Summer, Nocturnes, and possibly The Coral Thief.

  2. I have a copy of Homer & Langley sitting on my bedside table, but haven't cracked it open yet. Also, I paged through a copy of The Lieutenant a while back and it looked really good; it felt like good old-fashioned storytelling (alas, I didn't get assigned it for review). So both of those look like good bets in my book!

  3. I haven't read any of these books, but a few of them certainly look interesting. I'll have to check them out!

  4. Should I feel bad that I have only heard of one of them. The Kate Grenville one and I wouldn't read it as I might actually be the only person who hated her first book ' The Secret River' - I found it really boring.

    I shall have to investigate the rest. Thanks for sharing.

  7. The Liutenant is pretty well-known here in Australia (since the author is an Australian). It's also nominated for various national and local awards. I haven't heard of the rest apart from Nocturnes though.

  10. I'd be interested to see the list for authors who are not well-known and getting stellar reviews.

    With that said, I am interested in two on the list- Nocturnes and The Coral Thief. They look like good reads for me.

  11. I loved 'The Lieutenant'. I thought it was even better than 'The Secret River' and can't wait for the third one.

  13. I haven't read any of these books and only heard of one author, Karen Armstrong. I remember how she used to be one of the staunchest feminists out there and I wonder if she is still this way or has changed her views slightly,

  14. Homer & Langley is the latest addition to my LibraryThing Early reviewer GUILT LIST. Ishiguro is a new favorite of mine, so I will add that one to my wish list. But I haven't heard of the others.

  15. I saw this list the other day and was anxious to read some. Haven't read any yet. I love Kate DiCamillo so that's a must read.

  16. Oh dear, more for the list! From all of these the one highest on my list would be Nocturnes. I love Ishiguro.
