Book Award Challenge Choices

I’ve made my list of choices for this challenge. They are:

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao – Junot Diaz (2008 Pulitzer Prize)
Mister Pip – Lloyd Jones (2007 Commonwealth’s Writers’ Prize)
A Wrinkle in Time – Madeleine L’Engle (1963 Newbery Award)
American Born Chinese – Gene Luen Yang (2007 Printz Award)
American Gods – Neil Gaiman (2002 Hugo Award)
Stranger in a Strange Land – Robert A. Heinlein (1962 Hugo Award)
The Invention of Hugo Cabret – Brian Selznick (2008 Children’s Book Sense Award)
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing: Traitor to the Nation, Volume One: The Pox Party – M.T. Anderson (2006 Young People’s Literature National Book Award)
Atonement – Ian McEwan (2002 National Book Critics’ Circle Award)
Jesus Land: A Memoir – (2006 Alex Award)

Of course, these could change at any moment. I mean, I still haven’t started school yet…I don’t want to overwhelm myself with books then. 😉
