I’m doing a Winter TBR. I’m reading 11 books in 11 weeks 🤞I’ve decided to tackle my Advanced Reader Copies over the next 11 weeks. And I’m putting the first book I read of 2018 in your hands.
American War by Omar El Akkad
American War is Akkad’s debut novel: a second American Civil War, a devastating plague, and one family caught deep in the middle a story that asks what might happen if America were to turn its most devastating policies and deadly weapons upon itself.
The Fallen by Ace Atkins
This is the 7th book in the Quinn Colson series and my first introduction to Ace Atkins. The Fallen is: A classic southern tale of backroom deals, tainted honor, dysfunctional family, high-stakes greed and everyday heroism
Swing Time by Zadie Smith
Zadie Smith’s Swing Time has been on my TBR a few times since I got it. It’s a story about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them. Moving from northwest London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time.
