The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin is just awesome. Compulsively readable and sweet and just totally worth a read.
The Diviners by Libba Bray is my first book by Libba Bray. I sucked down this 500-page beast in no time.
Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl is an excellent memoir and if you like food, BONUS!
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins is a HUGE chunkster. This one was fun and felt like an achievement.
Oracle Night by Paul Auster was a book that left me feeling iffy at first, but the more I think on it, the cleverer it gets!
Everyone needs some quick-reading graphic novels like...
Sweet Tooth by Jeff Lemire is my fave so far, and it's just the first volume!
Chew: Just Desserts (volume 4) by John Layman get more mysterious and quirk with every volume.
And now for the depressing and profoundly affecting reads...
The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld was an odd mix of bruality and fantasy. Gorgeous!
Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison is heartbreaking but so worth the experience of stepping into this family's shoes.
Beloved by Toni Morrison is a searing account of slavery and the effects it can have on each person it touches. Breathtaking and intense.
