The great alone
I wasn’t sure how Kristin Hannah could follow The Nightingale but she didn’t disappoint!
It’s not published this year but Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell has me quickly turning pages!!!
I’m reading Attachments right now. It’s cute and definitely has me quickly turning the pages too. I needed a lighter, fun read after the heavy books I’ve been reading.
Janelle Maiwald did you read Carry On?
I have Fan Girl, but I haven’t read it yet.
I completely agree! @Andrea definitely needs to read Carry On.
Girls Burn Brighter by Shobah Rao
Does this mean best book published in 2018 so far? For me, that would be Circe by Madeline Miller- totally wowed by the research and the fast-paced, entertaining storyline.
Glad to hear this it is on my list.
Reading her Song of Achilles now and very excited to start Circe when I finish!
Shadowsong by Jae-Jones (I forget her last name)
How To Stop Time and My Dear Hamilton.
The Power by Naomi Alderman.
How to Walk Away by Katherine Center
I’ve only read 1… so it’s ‘The Book of Dust’ Phillip Pullman
Is this a new book!?!! Did he make another one of the His Dark Materials series!? I need answers!!
@Jade it’s the ‘prequel’ or as Pullman has said of the new series… ‘the equal’….
OMG! How is it?! Is it good!?
I have the complied trilogy as well as Lyras Oxford. Have you read that one?
@Jade I just finished it!!! I really enjoyed it. I’m going to go back and read ‘His Dark Materials’ and then reread it. It had been a while and I was trying to remember who the characters were and who they were in the other books…
@Jade what’s Lycra’s Oxford like??
That’s what i’m going to do. I love it. This one and I have the compilation of The Giver and it’s sequels. I read it as a kid and in school but had no idea it was a series. i’m excited
@Carmel It’s great!! It’s just a short…maybe only about 100 pages.

Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward, hands down the best so far.

Vincent and Theo by Deborah Heiligman
THE WIDOWS OF MALABAR HILL (a mystery) by Sujata Massey. Takes place in India during the early 1920s and is centered on India’s first accredited woman lawyer (who had studied law at Oxford).
