Waiting for Columbus by Thomas Trofimuk (my review) – This was the very first book I thought of when I started thinking about this list. So down it went. God, I adored this book. I think I’ll read it again soon.
Bone: The Complete Series by Jeff Smith (my review) – I just can’t seem to get any of my book friends to read these. THEY ARE SOOOOO GOOD. What’s a girl gotta do? Buy them for you?
Briar Rose by Jane Yolen (my review) – One of my very favorite Holocaust/Fairy Tale reimaginings. Broke my heart.
Illyria by Elizabeth Hand (my review) – This book is equal parts beautiful, weird, uncomfortable, and brilliant. I love it so hard.
Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier (my review) – Dinosaurs and lady pioneers of science. IT IS A TOTAL WIN.
Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry (my review) – I know, I know. It’s a western. An EPIC western. With love, sex, death, revenge, Indians, cowboys, snakes, dust, dirt, horses, prostitutes, and more. So much more.
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan (my review) – It’s like a modern Handmaid’s Tale. I’m still hoping for a sequel.
Mare’s War by Tanita S. Davis (my review) – I will never stop trying to get you to read this book.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (my review) – My absolutely favorite huge epic fantasy novel (that doesn’t feel like fantasy) EVER. I just adore this series.
Shine by Lauren Myracle (my review) – Powerful. Just soooo powerful.
