October Reading Wrap-Up

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

Kya Clark, affectionately known as “Marsh Girl,” is a social outcast. She lives a wild life in the marshes of North Carolina, has only a few close friends, and does not attend school. She is a recluse who lives off the land and who’s family has all but abandoned her. When a local turns up dead, Kya is the first and only suspect.

I enjoyed listening to this book through Audible.com and would recommend it if you’re looking for a coming-of-age story with many Southern references.

I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

The Ragged Edge of Night by Olivia Hawker

A beautifully written historical fiction novel features an unusual true story of Anton Starzmann, a man of the cloth and teacher who's school and students are taken over by the Nazis during WWII. He responds to an advertisement of a woman (Elizabeth) seeking marriage to a man who can help take care of her three children during the war. This is the story of how Anton joins the Red Orchestra (a well known Nazi resistance group during WWII) and helps to defy the Nazi regime.

I loved Hawker’s writing style in this novel. She does a wonderful job of painting vivid imagery throughout the novel.

If you do read this, make sure to read the Author’s Note at the end. Her reasoning behind writing this story now is so ridiculously relevant.

I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

This is the story of many. The story of a community—Shaker Heights, the story of Mia, of Pearl, of Lexi, and the other members of the Richardson family. This is the story of them all. It’s hard to describe what this book is exactly about because the story lines weave in and out, but all I can say is this: if you like a good story, read this novel.

I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars on Good reads.
