Interesting list! The only title I was aware of was Schmidt's See What I Have Done - but then, Lizzie-Borden-alia is always on my radar {wry grin}.

Eleonor Oliphant is the only title I know from this list, and I hope to read it this year.

I've only read 2 from this list, and I found both disappointing reads.

I've been a fan of both Jesmyn Ward & Kit de Waal's previous books, but have not read the particular ones of theirs on this list.
