Are you familiar with the ‘If you liked this book, you’ll like this one’ recommendation posts? This blog post is a little different as I put my own twist on it. The book on the left is a recent read that I greatly enjoyed. The corresponding book on the right is a book I added to my TBR because I enjoyed the other one so much.
I LOVED The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. A historical fiction taking place in 1940’s France, it shows us how two very different sisters dealt with the occupation of Germany and showed us that love could still prevail in the toughest of times.
Much like The Nightingale, All the Light We Cannot See is a highly praised historical fiction also based in World-War II France. This book is also written in two perspectives and I am excited to see whether Anthony Doerr can interweave these different perspectives into a smooth narrative.
Both released in January 2019, Echo North and A Curse So Dark and Lonely are considered Beauty and the Beast retellings. What made Echo North more than just another fairy tale retelling is the fact that aspects from other fairy tales were included to make the story different. Psst…. One of my new all-time favorite characters is in Echo North. Can you guess who?
A Curse So Dark and Lonely is a contemporary fantasy retelling that I have heard many great things about. I am intrigued to see how this book adds the contemporary touch to it and whether it adds a new and refreshing touch to the classic fairy tale.
Six of Crows follows a group of misfits as they attempt to pull off an impossible heist. Set in the Grishaverse, each member of the group contributes their own set of skills in order to see their mission succeed. To be honest, who doesn’t like Kaz Brekker?
Set in 1880’s Paris, Severin relies upon a group of experts to help him complete a mission with a generous reward. I hope to enjoy learning about the characters and their differences as much as I enjoyed it while reading Six of Crows.
