Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress - a good book I read years ago that was historically eye-opening (as many are).

The Sense of an Ending: Self-indulgent in some places, but Barnes' artfulness with words makes up for it.

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter

This book is unbelievable! Every person alive should read it. Easy read. Fourth Grade reading level. It doesn't matter if you are 46 or 4th grade. Unbelievable book!!!

The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry - I should have liked this book more. Complicated people just trying to do their best during the times they live in. Yet, I didn't like the book. I had trouble with the untrustworthy narrators, the characters and the tone. I found myself skimming sections I didn't like to get to sections I did.

There's a reason movie-makers snatched up the film rights to these hits: they're good stories that will look amazing on the big screen. Read the books now, see the movies later, and then decide which one you think is better.

In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette, nonfiction 4.15 on Goodreads

The Innocent: Our heroine Michael rescuing a little girl from a crazy religious cult. Makes me want to return to Buenos Aires for coffee and alfajores. 6/12

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. Recommended by Suman
