The Pulitzer Project

As you might have guessed, the project is to finish up with the Pulitzer winners. Target being a book a month from the below list apart from others that occupy my the-then state of mind. Extended project is to review the book as well which might be a bit of a stretch but a noble intention indeed. I will add links to the book I have read as I progress- some my own while others borrowed off the NYT review.
