This is Ken Follet’s newest book in the Kingsbridge Series. A Column of Fire, like the sequel A World Without End, follows the ancestors of the characters in Pillars of Earth.
Oh man, family drama! I liked this novel by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney because it was so realistic yet still a compelling narrative. I didn't like that the characters portrayed some of the worst, normal human traits (they weren't evil, but they weren't good)
The Little French Bistro
Nina George wrote a very sweet and charming novel here. Although this it’s described as a novel about new beginnings or second chances, I really thought the book told more of a belated coming of age story.
The author, Matthew Desmond, did great in telling a story while also educating the reader about the devastating effects eviction can have on individuals, families, and communities.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik is my favorite fiction for the year, and up in my top five overall.
