The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah Like Anthony Doerr's book All the Light We Cannot See, The Nightingale is also a modern historical fiction novel set in France during World War II. This book follows the lives of sisters Vianne and Isabelle and is as equally gripping and thrilling as Doerr's book.
Locke & Key, vol. 6 by Joe Hill I have a huge fan of Joe Hill (aka Stephen King's son)'s graphic novel series, Locke & Key, and in January I finally finished it off. The series concludes in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. I read it all in one sititng!
My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem In January I decided to check out Emma Watson's feminist book club called Our Shared Shelf on Goodreads and this was the first book selected. While I enjoyed Steinem's stories about life on the road and found them to be inspiring, I also found the book's episodic writing style to be a bit disjointed and hard to follow at times.
Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue I stumbled across this book at the library and decided to read it before the Academy Award nominated movie came out. For those of you who don't know, the book is told from the perspective of a 5 year old boy who has been held captive in a room for his entire life. I thought the book is WAY better than the movie!
