Harry‘s Trees is a lot like A Man Called Ove, but better imho! Read it and let me know if you agree! #letterh

This surprised me and pulled at my heartstrings! A heartwarming tale of three lonely souls finding connection in unlikely places!

The Golem and the Jinni | Helene Wecker

A Gentleman in Moscow is an all time fav and would be a solid choice for #letterg, but I also love The Golem and the Jinni! It is the perfect blend of magical realism in a historical setting.

This one has stuck with me through the years! Highly recommend- such a vivid picture of India in the 1970s.

I‘m a sucker for books set in Russia. Throw in a handful of magical realism and I‘m sold!

Led a middle grade book club on this book that was so fun! We sorted ourselves into the four houses with a quiz, then played a trivia game. And had Trolli octopus candy! 🐙
