Here's Liesl Freudenstein's pick for the best book of 2013 so far:
The book I have is Life after Life, by Kate Atkinson. It's the book I was really glad to have while I was sitting on a flight to Europe, so I didn't have to feed myself, or get my own beverage, or anything (except the potty stop, cause really you do have to do that by yourself!) except read this really stunning work. I really didn't want it to end, either the flight or the book. The nice thing was, there was a return trip, and the book DOESN'T really end!
