The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne is the recipient of an award for standout storytelling and it definitely deserves that honor. This book is extraordinary and it has become one of my favorite contemporary novels.
The Travelers by Regina Porter centers around the lives of two families that includes a New York attorney, an African American woman, a married sailor on an air craft carrier in Vietnam, an interracial and academic scholar couple, a lesbian starting life over again in 1970s’ Berlin, a black moving man stranded during a Thanksgiving storm in Portsmouth and two half-brothers who meet for the first time in their adulthood.
A few days ago, I finished Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid and I don’t even know how to describe my face when I closed this book. I was euphoric because I was mesmerized by this story and sad, at the same time, because it was over. Yes, it’s this good! Let’s see: I haven’t read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo yet and I was feeling sort of skeptical. I didn’t really know if Daisy Jones & The Six was going to live up to the hype. But it did!
She Wants It by Jill Soloway is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read! Jill Soloway is the creator of Transparent, the award-winning Amazon TV series, that revolves around a Los Angeles family and their lives following the discovery that the person they knew as their father Mort is a trans woman.
Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami. I enjoy saying the title very slowly because it brings me back to this marvelous story, to this unforgettable reading experience. This novel, released in October in the US and the UK, was one of my most anticipated releases of 2018. Haruki Murakami is definitely one of my favorite writers. This goes without saying that my expectations were very high.
