Kate Quinn has done it again! Her books are riveting, filled with such fascinating history, humanity, humor, and heart. This one might just be my favorite- bold statement, I know!! Brilliant storytelling with the shifting timelines and characters hiding in shadow, heartwrenching love stories, and a war heroine with so much grit and ferocity that I want to emulate in my own life. And nearly all the people and plot points are factual in this one!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows
Prior to reading this, I knew very little about German occupation of the English Channel Islands and the role Guernsey‘s citizens played in WWII. I‘m also a big fan of epistolary historical fiction novels.

I was going to pick A Gentleman in Moscow but quite a few have already so I went with this one, which I also love.

@alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

My other favorites for #letterD were: Dead Wake by Erik Larson, Dear Miss Kopp by Amy Stewart, Dear Mrs Bird by A.J. Pearce, The Double Life of Katharine Clark by Katharine Gregorio, Drawn by the Current by Jocelyn Green, Duchess of Bloomsbury Street by Helene Hanff, and The Dutch House by Ann Pratchett

Letters E and F I didn‘t have any other major contenders lol

marleed I‘ve yet to enter this game but absolutely love reading about everyone‘s favorite books. I would have matched you for the letter E with Butte, MT being my hometown and William Clark so prominent in its history. 5d
Aims42 @marleed This is a fun way to see everyone‘s favorites (and add to my TBR pile 🤪) lol I read ‘Empty Mansions‘ a few years ago and I knew it had to be my E pick. It was fascinating!! I recommended it my aunt and she said she fell down the rabbit hole of researching after reading it 5d

📖 8-5-22 || Told from the point of view of four different women in the early days of World War II… A charming read about women finding strength and courage in uncertain times.

This is the 3rd book in a trilogy about 3 artists, now middle aged, living through WWII. There were some memorable scenes and wonderful dialogue. But throughout the whole trilogy I felt that the author knew the characters deeply, but I never did. In this 3rd book, their identifying features seem to have disappeared almost completely. But it‘s a powerful account of what it meant to live in London during the war, with a lot of historical detail.

Based on the true story of Lyudmila Pavilchenko, a Soviet WWII sniper, the plot is full of historical detail & realistic feel. The characters are vividly & fantastically written. This is one of those books that hooked me so well I didn't want to put it down. Quinn is 100% an autobuy author for me. She has a way of weaving an intriguing story with great balance & intrigue. When it comes to historical fiction, she is absolutely among the best.
