I hate to leave things unfinished...help!! (Really...)

    I just finished "The Dry", by Jane Harper. She's an Australian author so I don't know if she's available in the US, but if you like crime novels I'd definitely recommend it if you can track it down. She has a great gift for capturing the landscape and the atmosphere (it's set in a small town being slowly crushed by drought-induced despair) in a sparse yet descriptive style. Authentic & sympathetic characters & an intriguing storyline. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    It just won the UK Crime Writers' Association's Gold Dagger Award for Best Crime Novel & has won numerous awards here in Australia, so it's obviously not just me who enjoyed it - it was her debut novel, too! I hope you like it!

    The Bird Box is a perfect October read. Once you start, you wont be able to stop!!! It's an apocalyptic novel that scares the crap out of you because of what you don't see! its all sensory and the monster in your brain is always the most terrifying.

    A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel by Amor Towles. I can't put it down.





    An Amazon Best Book of September 2016: A Gentleman in Moscow is the utterly entertaining second novel from the author of Rules of Civility. Amor Towles skillfully transports us to The Metropol, the famed Moscow hotel where movie stars and Russian royalty hobnob, where Bolsheviks plot revolutions and intellectuals discuss the merits of contemporary Russian writers, where spies spy, thieves thieve and the danger of twentieth century Russia lurks outside its marbled walls. It’s also where wealthy Count Alexander Rostov lives under house arrest for a poem deemed incendiary by the Bolsheviks, and meets Nina. Nina is a precocious and wide-eyed young girl who holds the keys to the entire hotel, wonders what it means to be a princess, and will irrevocably change his life. Despite being confined to the hallway of the hotel, the Count lives an absorbing, adventure-filled existence, filled with capers, conspiracies and culture. Alexander Rostov is a character for the ages--like Kay Thompson’s Eloise and Wes Anderson’s M. Gustav, he is unflinchingly (and hilariously for readers) devoted to his station, even when forced to wait tables, play hide and seek with a young girl, or confront communism. Towles magnificently conjures the grandeur of the Russian hotel and the vibrancy of the characters that call it home. --Al Woodworth, The Amazon Book Review

    The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. Dark humor. I love it.
