For today's #AMonthofFaves post we're picking our favorite winter reads from last year's favorites! Most of these books don't have a thing to do with winter, but they'll always be connected with winter in my mind because that's when I read them!
Link up down below!
Two books could not be more different! Empty Mansions is a fantastic non-fiction book about Huguette Clark, millionaire and recluse. I loved falling into this world of privilege and, potentially, madness!
The Slynx, by Tatyana Tolstaya, is a contemporary Russian novel in translation. It's about existence after "The Blast," and the ways in which Russian culture endures and morphs. This has post-apocalyptic notes and is packed with satire. While I had my doubts at first, it blew me away!
When you're brain fried from the holidays, The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories is a huge winner. The first volume remains my favorite. These are adorable, small, dainty books filled with whimsy. You really can't go wrong!
If you haven't read Octavia Butler already, get thee to the bookstore! Kindred is about an African American woman who travels back in time in numerous instances, drawn to a young white man, while she's left to maneuver through the slave culture of the 1800s. Powerful, brutal, provocative.
The Wife, by Meg Wolitzer, grabbed me in its first lines. A sharp examination of the literary life of privilege and the lengths people will go to in order to succeed.
Now show us what you've got!
