The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. I picked this up at random on Independent Bookstore Day at Elliott Bay Bookstore. Fantastic hopeful book about loss and love. Great characters. Very glad I took the chance — what I really like about independent bookstores is their “staff picks” area.
March by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, Nate Powell. Great graphic novel about the life of John Lewis.
Amatka by Karen Tidbeck. Another Independent Bookstore Day purchase. A town whose very existence is defined and controlled by language, and what happens as some of the residents start to rebel against control and language. A little trippy but I enjoy tales like these.
