Tournament of Books X

As I try to read more smart books, per my 2013 New Years Resolution that has received an extension for 2014,  the Morning News is stepping it up and offering me some great choices!

"In case you’re new to all this, the ToB is an annual springtime event here at TheMorning News, where a group of the best works of fiction from last year enter a March Madness-style battle royale.

 In March, these novels will be seeded and paired off in an NCAA Tournament-like bracket. For each pairing, one of our esteemed judges will read both novels and advance one, with a transparent explanation of how they made their decision. Along the way, our ToB Chairmen, authors Kevin Guilfoile and John Warner, will weigh in with commentary, and you, the readers, will add your own.

 Eventually, only two books will remain, to be judged by our entire panel, and one will be crowned the Rooster of 2014."

Here they come in all their glory- if you need a book to read that is somewhat above the normal insta-love werewolf/angel romance, this is a good place to start!
