The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Two magicians fighting to the death. At a circus. And she's compared to Niffeneger!
(My only worry: too similar toThe Hunger Games?)
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Cancer cells still living today from a woman in 1951
& the story behind the woman and her family.
Science. Storytelling. Ethics.
(I love a book that had a good amount of research going into it.)
Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
Since I was ten years old, I've wanted to read every possible thing
about the Holocaust that I can get my hands on. This is no exception.
(That probably sounds weird, but the Holocaust is a subject
that always has fascinated me. And WWII in general.)
The Seamstress of Hollywood Boulevard by Erin McGraw
A woman flees Kansas to reinvent her life in LA.
In the early 1900s.
Based loosely on the author's grandmother's life.
Sounds like my cup of tea.
Swamplandia! by Karen Russell
Gators. The everglades. Gators.
A quirky little girl. Who fights gators.
Did I mention gators?
Have any of you read these? Which one should I start with? (It would help if I owned some of these, but I guess that's what Amazon Prime is for. Or the library. Or, if I were a good writer with an unlimited bank account, Barnes and Noble.)
