It is January. Cold outside in most places. And in some there is ice on the roads and sidewalks--(Oregon where I live) Can't get to work? There is always zoom, unless you are in retail or your internet went down. And if that's the case, what better time to read?
A few suggestions from my latest list:
STARLING HOUSE by Alix Harrow--she is the author of THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY and THE ONCE AND FUTURE WITCHES. Whenever I see a new book of hers I grab it. And this one does not disappoint. I'm not that far in yet, but if you like tales about houses that may or may not be sentient, magic and strange characters, you will like this one. And she's a really good writer.
Anything by V.E. Schwab--fantasy at its best and good writing and very unusual stories that you wish would never end.
THE FOUR WINDS by Kristin Hannah. And any other books by her. Literary love story that takes place in 1921--good good writing.
And of course I have to add my latest novel: THE LIBRARY OF TIME. If you are a Dr. Who fan, think Tardis. It is a time-travel/mystery/romance that takes place in 2323. (at least for part of it)
