It's been a long time...

Plenty of reading has been done since I last wrote here. Unfortunately, like I have done more than once, I let my reviewing fall to the wayside. However, I wanted to let you all know I'm still here and now that the colder days are setting in, I shall be reviewing books again. For now, here are a few recommendations from what I've read in the last year. (Links will take you to Goodreads.)

Lilac Girls, by Martha Hall Kelly (WWII historical fiction)

House of Living Stones (and the other two in the Anthems of Zion trilogy), by Katie Schuermann (modern fiction, Lutheran, and utterly amazing)

The Whiskey Sea, by Ann Howard Creel (historical fiction)

Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel (dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction)

Radiance, by Catherynne M. Valente (alternate history/space opera/beautiful prose fiction)

The Martian, by Andy Weir (science fiction)

The Girl in the Castle, by Santa Montefiore (historical fiction/family saga)

I've read about three times this, but these are the ones that stood out to me the most. The last book listen totally ruined me. It was beautiful and I can't believe I've never read anything by Santa Montefiore before. Her prose was lovely, her characters are incredible, and I truly cared about each and every person who was focused on.

So. There you have it. I'm currently reading a few books, but the one at the top is Stars Over Sunset Boulevard, by Susan Meissner. It's good so far.
