The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom–saw the movie when I was younger but had never read the book. It was wonderful. Need some perspective on your life? Feeling like you’re fighting to be grateful? Read this book.
Atlantia by Ally Condie–read this for book club. It is basically the story of Atlantis and The Little Mermaid. It wasn’t a horrible story but it also wasn’t mind-blowing. I felt ‘eh shoulder shrug’ about it when I finished. How’s that for a rave review?
The False Prince, The Runaway King, The Shadow Throne by Jennifer A. Nielsen–a trilogy recommended to me by a couple of librarians. And I loved it.
Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks–a story about a young woman during the 17th century in England and what happens to her small town when the plague hits. This book has so many redeeming qualities….and then the end of the book came and I almost threw it across the room. ugh. I can’t stand bad endings.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr–this story follows a young blind girl who lives in nazi occupied Paris and a young boy who is a part of hitler youth. I loved this book, too.
