For #FridayReads this week, I’ve decided to go with the theme historical fiction. There’s been a few books on my radar that I’ve been meaning to read, though I don’t normally read historical fiction.
Balm by Dolen Perkins-Valdez: Set during the aftermath of the Civil War, a young woman has hands that can heal anything but herself. Magical realism themes throughout.
Signal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia: From Goodreads, “A literary fantasy about love, music and sorcery, set against the background of Mexico City.” Cool, right??
Terrible Virtue by Ellen Feldman: This book is about the life of Margaret Sanger, the woman who founded Planned Parenthood. This book will publish March 22, 2016.
I’m currently reading two books from the library, Zone One by Colson Whitehead (zombie apocalypse!!) and Updraft by Fran Wilde. Borrowing books from the library renews my love of libraries because I am reminded that I didn’t need to pay for either of these books. 😛
