- The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss (ebook) * A breath of life into the fantasy genre.
- The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern (ebook) * Weeks later, I can't stop thinking about this book...and I desperately want to knit myself a crimson scarf. If you only pick one book from this list to try, it should be this one.
- Girls In White Dresses, Jennifer Close (ebook, library) I'm glad I checked this one out from the library. After The Night Circus I needed a bit of froth to allow my brain to settle ... and that's exactly what this book is. Kind of surprised it was a BOTNS recommendation. This is the closest I ever get to "chick lit" and having read it I'm more than happy to stay away from that genre. Not much else to say.
- The Passage, Justin Cronin (ebook) * Literary horror...vampiric viruses....post-apocalyptic society...and a girl who will save the world. Bravo. I have to wait until next year for the follow-up book, The Twelve, and that's going to be very, very hard to do.
A very good month, indeed.
