I really want to read The Sociopath Next Door because I really think there's one across the street from us. I hope you get the chance to read The Summer Girls.

Hahaha, I'm totally failing to adjust to my new blog name. I kept seeing the names of books I've reviewed recently and thinking, What? Someone ELSE told you to read those? :p

The Speed of Dark is amazing, in that it does capture what it means to be autistic. I read it a couple of years ago, and it made my best books of the year. I think of it often now, it's one of those books that lingers. I hope you enjoy it. ]

What an amazing pile of books you've heard about from other bloggers! I'm afraid to do the list :-) though it would be interesting to see what I've gotten from reading blogs.

Bermudaonion- That would be frightening! Maybe the book would put your mind at rest and convince you that your neighbor isn't one.

Jenny- I keep forgetting who you are when I see your new blog title in my reader list!

Susan- I hope to read it, although it probably won't be soon. I like making these lists. It used to feel daunting but now I just like to remind myself that there's never going to run out of books I want to read!
