For what it's worth, this is not fantasy. And is the start of what is, by far, her best and most important series. I have mixed reactions to her other books -- some I like, a lot, some not so much. But this book (and the eponymous series it spawned) have been among my favourites.
Oh, I should have looked closer. Everything else I've read of hers has been fantasy and so I had that stuck in my head despite what you had said in the nomination.

You have my undying gratitude for not nominating a John Irving book.

I also considered Carrie; I liked the first few Stephen King novels before souring on him, and have thought it would be fun to revisit Carrie via audiobook one of these days.
We're even. I have absolutely no desire to revisit Carrie.

Thank you!

And I admit, I'm a sucker for books set in New York.
Quote Victoria
Me too - I love New York!
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, anyone?

One of those books I read over and over until I'd nearly memorized it.

As for the nominations, there isn't a book here that I wouldn't like to see make it to the poll, but we're running out of available nominations unless someone else shows up. Right now, it seems we'll have a lot of old maids.

I’ve been trying not to spend all my votes on the first day, as I did the first few months. For my last vote, I third I Am A Cat - it’s sounds intriguing and something I would never have been introduced to on my own.

If you, or anyone else, who can't be online during the voting would like, I'd be happy to add your votes to the poll. Just PM me with your choices any time before the poll is up.
