The only book on your list that I have read is A Tree Grown in Brooklyn. Good luck on your list.

Good luck! I loved A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and really must get back to Penman and Plaidy myself.

There are so many Plaidy novels I want to read next year, and quite a handful of Penman novels too!

Nice idea to put the covers of the books in your post as well - they all look so inviting !

I love a bit of historical fiction and non-fiction myself.

Good luck

Welcome back for 2014!! Your lists are always so interesting - new-to-me books, for the most part, every year! The Agatha Christie book sounds great. Good luck!

You'll love A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, it's rather flat but so enjoyable. And you have Christie's autobiography there! Oh, shame on me, that I am her fans but have never read her bio.

Good luck with the challenge!

I loved the TBR Pile Challenge this year (working on book #12), and am planning my reading list for 2014.

When Christ and His Angels Slept will definitely be on my list as well--can't wait to read that one.

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was fabulous--enjoy!

I like all your history and historical fiction selections too, and the Autobiography of Agatha Christie is very promising.

Good luck with the challenge, and happy reading.
