I'm pulling for Small Wars, The Help, and The Little Stranger! Back off, Hilary Martel! You do NOT need this one!

I'm not pulling for anything in particular yet, because I've only read two (!), but I'm really excited about the nominations this year, which seem to be my perfect mix of knowns and unknowns (to me, that is, they might well be knowns for other readers). I'm planning for Orange Thursdays from now through the announcement ::rubs palms::
