  1. Review by me -

    Review by a fellow reviewer -

    Though Vivek is not here anymore but after reading this review, it inspired me to read a lot of Salman Rushdie and I absolutely enjoy his work.

    My pick from the list of books is - The sly company of people who care!

  2. I would obviously enjoy writing about the book I found most interesting to read. Here is my pick out of my own reviews (Easy one, given that I did not have much to choose from)

    Among others, its a real tough choice, but I think I would go with this one. There are no reasons, it is more of an instinctive liking for this post.

  3. Yatin , Can you please pick a review post by some one who is existing member of ALOP ?

    It will make me easy to count for winner :)

  4. review by self -

    review by MSM -

    Best Regards

  5. This is such a cute giveaway! :D

    The review I enjoyed writing most this year, was of the book called "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand:

    And the review that touched my heart like no other was of the book "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult, reviewed by FL:


  6. And my choice of book is "Sister" - by Rosamund Lupton, even though it's going to rip my heart apart.

  7. No,not fair...I have to judge these books by their covers now!
    My review would be(not like I had any choice):
    And a review I liked(that's three for this one FL!):
    And the book I'm angling for is Ilustrado by Miguel Syjuco(wait,are we even supposed to mention that??)

  8. Oh this is going to be painful!!

    The review I enjoyed writing....eerr... do i have to choose from out of 140 reviews! 70 percent of them fantasy :( Well, if I had to choose one I loved writing the most, it would be Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult.

    As for the the review i loved to read the most, it would have to be Juliet Naked by icyhighs

  9. Well, I'm quite new to ALOP and reviews in general ;) but okay..

    A review I loved writing (can't I say all? writing about a book is so enjoyable, so how can you ask to choose?!)

    As for reading and enjoying (again, the same thing, how can I choose?! but since I have to, I'd say... ) it was Heirs of Catriona review by Freelancer.

    I'll angle for a book later.. must read something about each book before I make up my mind.. but title wise, Illustrado seems intriguing :D

  10. So FL, you really ought to thank Jodi Picoult. :P And I know Nimue is hosting this giveaway but I'd like to know what she would choose. :D
