Great! Aciman truly has that rare ability to capture relatable human thought. His suspenseful and intriguing tale of romance especially shines here. If you liked the prequel Call Me By Your Name, this is a must try!! -Dalton
It's really hard to describe this novel. It's a mystery story about a poet who may have only written one illegible poem, but also an oral history of the effects of two vagabonds as they travel the world. If you like this one be sure to check out its spiritual sequel, 2666, my favorite novel of all time. #Latin American! #Epic #Mystery -Dan
Latest installment of the Dave Robicheaux saga is RIVETING! Hollywood comes to the bayou and Maltese crosses and tarot symbols start showing up on corpses!! Old Louisiana + Cajun + Creole tale! Brilliant storytelling! Flawed yet compelling characters! Twists and turns and sympathetic to imperfection. -Anna
The prose alone made me weep! It's a love story, but so much more, in a place I know little of. It is the most remarkable work of art. Please read it! -Carolyn
I loved this book so much. It is winter ice, mythic kingdoms falling & rising, defiance in despair -- devils and Russia (or some Tsar-ruled fantasy kingdom) & money lenders and family and story and oh! so good. It is enchanting, & has been loved by even those who don't usually read genre fiction. #fairytale #beauty #BestFantasy #I had a free copy but bought it in hardcover I loved it so much #challengedbyfairies! #otherworlds #silverwinter #hygge -Jess
Like Lions is a classic 'some become cops and some become 'criminals' story. Drugs, violence, motorcycle clubs and family ties are rotting a community from the inside out and one man struggles to maintain law and order while also protecting his family. Super juicy! Rural Georgia! Compellingly flawed characters! Gang violence! Addiction! PTSD! Families! Domestic violence! -Anna
It's a big book but if you're a lover of historical fiction - this is for you! Meticulously researched and based on the true story of Varian Fry, whose mission was to protect artists and writers from being deported to Nazis concentration camps. You will feel like you're on Fry's journey. His moral dilemma of who to save will make you think and you may understand more of the plight of refugees in today's world. -Sue
This is my all time favorite -- a letter from an Italian grandmother to her estranged granddaughter in the US encouraging her to follow her heart. A wonderful gift for all! -Annie
A wonderfully inappropriate collection of smutty short stories based around characters from beloved classic novels. The Dorian Gray story is my favorite... -Kelsy
A beautiful tale of Libera's beginnings, spun across continents and communities. Three characters linked by a voice on the wind and their mysterious strengths. This book blew me away. -Amy
The latest book in Alexander McCall Smith's popular 44 Scotland Street series is a sheer delight.
This beloved account about an intrepid young Englishman on the first leg of his walk from London to Constantinople is simply one of the best works of travel literature ever written.
