After a brief side trip through WWII (in All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, with writing that paints beautiful detail), I am back to finish the Grisha’s battle between light and dark. Will the players rise to their roles? I am anxious to see who will sacrifice what.
And others catching my ever wandering eye…
Black Dove, White Raven
by Elizabeth Wein
Known for her heart-wrenching historical fiction, Wein’s new book about slavery in 1930s America calls to another round of gripping soul-searching.
Love and Gelato
by Jenna Evans Welch
I can feel the winds of summer around the bend; romance, melt-on-your-mouth sugar and cream and Italy will fit nicely.
by Lauren Oliver
This looks creepy and perfect for a night curled up on a couch and wrapped in a cable-knit blanket.
