A Gentleman in Moscow – Amor Towles


  I relished every page of this book and every character. Count Alexander Rostov is sentenced to house arrest in the Hotel Metropol in Moscow. It is through his eyes and heart that we watch the historical events reaging through the country from the 1920s to the 1950s. For all those years the Count could not leave the hotel. Reading the book, I was entranced to be there with him. BLURBIn 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin.

Us Against You by Fredick Backman


Intense! Ostensibly about hockey, this book is really a revelation about the dynamics between people — love and hate and violence that we are all capable of.Backman is a master storyteller with a unique writing style. We know from the beginning that someone is going to die, but who and how? And knowing does not detract from the suspense. READ Beartown first to appreciate fully this sequel. Blurb:After everything that the citizens of Beartown have gone through, they are struck yet another blow when they hear that their beloved local junior hockey team will soon be disbanded.
