• Circe
    Madeline Miller

    "With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and pause-resisting suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, and love and loss as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world."

  • A Gentleman in Moscow
    Amor Towles

    "Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count's endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose."

    My favorite book of 2016 :)

  • Oil and Marble
    Stephanie Storey

    "Oil and Marble is the story of Leonardo and Michelangelo's forgotten rivalry. Storey brings early 16th-century Florence alive and has entered with extraordinary empathy into the minds and souls of two Renaissance masters."
