I’m feeling listy and rather nautical. Being the landlocked lady that I am, I have no access to an ocean. I do, however, get to drive to and fro over the Illinois River on the daily. Remember how much fun we had talking about books linked by wind? Let’s play that again, only this time, we’re using “river” as our linking word. On your mark, get set, ROW! (Ah, I kid. A little river pun for you.)
1. The River of No Return by Bee Ridgeway: Time travel romance is totally my jam, so I loved the crap out of this book. You can travel through time (if you’re the right sort of person) on the river of human emotion. Hello, awesome concept, nice to see you! (my review)
2. The House at Riverton by Kate Morton: A glittery society party in the 1920s at a swanky English country estate lead to tragedy. The key to unlocking the mystery behind the debacle may lie in the memories of an elderly house maid. Part mystery, part love story, part servant life, this book has a little bit of everything. (my review)
3. Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi: I don’t know how often I can rave about this book, but let’s do it once more for good measure, shall we? Trudi Montag is a dwarf living in Nazi Germany. Trudi’s insider view of Nazi Germany on the home front combined with her outsider’s view of society as someone inherently different offer a stunning portrait of society, war, and love. Basically? This book kicks butt. Read it now.
What say you, Bookworms? Any fabulous “river” titles I’m missing out on?
