Deathless and Among Others and The Girl Who. . . are great. And now apparently I do have to try The Night Circus. . . it seems like it's been nominated for everything under the sun, and the Mythopoeic is definitely the award I take the most note of. ;)

I've been hearing good things about The Night Circus ever since it was released.  This does push it closer to the top of Mt. TBR though.

Deathless, I've just been waiting for a couple of days of uninterrupted reading time before I buy/read it.  I always hate having to put a Valente book down.

I'm like you.  I pay a lot of attention to this award because I almost always like the books that get nominated.

I just finished The Night Circus last night and it was excellent.  It does get bogged down a bit in the middle but the ending more than makes up for it.
