The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
Quirky, refreshing, and slower paced. My kind of fantasy! This is definitely going down as an all-time favorite. I am obsessed!
Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
A rare sequel that’s better than the first. And the first was outstanding.
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
A masterpiece of historical fiction set in my favorite time period, Tudor England. Hands down one of the best historical fictions I’ve ever read.
Hamilton: the Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter
Not just a coffee table book. Half libretto, half author’s notes, half making-of, half gorgeous photographs. Makes you feel like you were in the room where it happened.
The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
A rare outstanding sequel! I was so excited to get more of Arden’s enchanting medieval Russia.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
Simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming, Eleanor Oliphant is sure to charm the pants off you.
The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Adieh
It’s hard to go wrong with a re-telling of The Thousand and One Nights, but I have to say that I adored the romance in this one!
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman
A spy novel about a multi-dimensional library? YES PLEASE!
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
The French Occupation in the second world war as told by the women left behind. A gut-wrenching but beautiful story.
Based on Little Fuzzy by H. Beam Piper, this book is half action/adventure novel, half courtroom drama, half sci-fi.
