In this New York Times bestseller, the lives of a French girl and German boy become inextricably tied during World War II in Nazi-occupied France.
“As I read this story, over and over I set aside my curiosity about what happens next to slow down, reread, and savor the language,” wrote one fan. “Doerr’s verbs nail the action in arresting ways. Bombers “shed” altitude. Pigeons “cataract” down a cathedral spire and “wheel out” over the sea. Teacups “drift” off shelves, and paintings “slip” off nails...This prose begs to be read aloud or at least heard by your inner ear.”
Midnight in Chernobyl: The Untold Story of the World's Greatest Nuclear Disaster by Adam Higginbotham
It’s hard to find an award this book has not gotten. The true account of the notorious 1986 nuclear accident in the Ukranian SSR has been the New York Times Best Book of the Year, Time Best Book of the Year, Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Book of the Year, and a 2020 Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence Finalist.
“This is a gripping and enthralling read: a wild ride through a nuclear disaster and the desperate attempts of the men and women who tried to prevent it becoming something far worse,” wrote one awe-inspired reader. “Higginbotham has a great turn of phrase, a grip on the material - but most of all, a sense that this a real story about real people. If you go into this seeing it as a story of nuclear physics and the failure of the Soviet Union, you’ll come out realizing that’s only part of the story. The men who fought the fires after the first explosion, the woman mayor who tried to save her town, the families who watched loved ones suffer from radiation sickness - this is about life and death.”
Part ‘Devil Wears Prada,’ part ‘Sex and the City,’ this romance novel about a New York City-based widower, Claire, who finds love with Scott, a contractor who’s renovating her apartment is part two in the beloved Central Park Pact series.
“The slow burn in this book is something else - my stomach spent most of the book filled with butterflies and doing somersaults from all the flirting and back-and-forth banter between Claire and Scott,” wrote a fan. “You can't help but fall for these two, and root for them to get out of their own way to come together.”
Science fiction fans will love this anthology of fantastical tales, which include supernatural characters, a story of mother-son love expressed origami, and even more reflections of Asian culture told through moving narratives.
“It took me a while to read this one because I had to pause at the end of each story, sometime for days, to think about it, mentally study it, and allow it to enter my memory stores where it wanted to reside,” wrote one thoughtful reader. “The stories are varied in length, are wide in range and subject, and are all unforgettable...I highly recommend this gem.”
