January “New to You Author”

-I read 17 books in January and over half were new to me authors! Fiona Barton, Marcia Willetts, Stephanie Land, Maureen Joyce Connolly, Tara Westover just to name a few. My favorite was Mourning Dove by Claire Fullerton, click link for my review.

February “Cover Love”

This month, I read a book that will forever hold a place in my heart. The Hearts Invisible Furies by John Boyne was a beautifully written, emotional read set over 70 years, in the life of Cyril Avery. I am behind on my reviews, so for now, here’s a link to my IG post of this gorgeous book (that coincidentally matches my official OrangeCountyReaders bookmarks!)
