I haven't been this excited about a book since All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr came out. Homegoing is an incredibly impressive piece of writing and I can't wait for the rest of the world to read it. Yaa Gyasi is inspiring and truly talented.
A re-imagining of Jane Eyre - if she was a serial killer. This book is bad ass.
I read this book over a year ago and I still can't stop talking about it! Set in Alaska in the 1920s, a husband and wife are drifting apart. Unable to have their own child, they create one out of snow one night and it changes their whole lives. Full of rich imagery and wonderful characters, Eowyn Ivey has written a beautiful fairytale that really reaches out and holds your heart.!
This is a very interesting take on the classic Snow White and Evil Queen story. I loved it.
A challenging book to read because of the subject matter, but a very important read nonetheless.
This is a perfect book to read this winter. Ivey alternates between the journal entries of Colonel Allen Forrester while he explores uncharted territory in Alaska and the diary of his pregnant wife Sophie, who is stuck at the military barracks until he returns. I was enthralled with the vivid descriptions of the Alaskan landscape, the characters, and the magical elements Ivey weaves into this story. I couldn't put it down!
