The Pull of the Stars
“I don’t often read general fiction. But when I do, it is often Emma Donoghue. Her books Room and Akin where great stories and I was certain so would The Pull of the Stars be. I was not disappointed. I was enthralled by it from beginning to end and I hope you all love it as much as I did! Three days… that is the entirety of the book. And yet, so much happens. It was an emotional journey. Almost entirely on her own, Nurse Julia has to combat influenza and try to deliver healthy babies without losing their mothers. Even though the struggles at that maternity ward would have been enough to keep you on your toes while reading, Emma Donoghue also brings to light other social issues- the aversion to contraception, social pressure to give away your baby if you are unmarried, sexual and physical abuse, a sadly high maternity mortality rate, the pandemic itself, and the horrors of the war.”Anne, Inklings Bookshop

If you enjoyed The Revolution of Marina M., then you’ll love Tsarina.
“Brutal, unrelenting, and inspiring, Tsarina is a historical novel that's as harshly beautiful as a Russian winter. Following the rise of Peter the Great's second wife, Catherine, from her life as a peasant, to courtesan, to queen, Tsarina pulls no punches and doesn't spare the reader's sensibilities. I was fascinated and horrified by the insights it offered into pre-revolutionary Russia, from the abject poverty of the lowest classes to the opulence of Peter's court. Peter, a perplexingly contradictory character in history, is portrayed with a dynamic flair as a larger-than-life ruler whose great ambitions and appetites sometimes brought triumph, sometimes ruin and horror, to his subjects. And by his side and behind the scenes, his equally cunning and ambitious tsarina both aided and thwarted his endeavors, eventually ruling in her own right. Tsarina shines a light on one of history's most fascinating women, and I couldn't drag myself away from it till the very end.”Emily, Inklings Bookshop
Meet Me in the Margins
If you enjoyed We Met in December, then you’ll love Meet Me in the Margins.
“Savannah is secretly writing a romance novel—something that the highly selective Nashville publishing house that employs her as an editor would never deign to pick up—but after a chance meeting with the editor-in-chief of her favorite romance imprint, Savannah thinks she might actually have a chance at getting published. In a cutthroat environment with looming budget cuts and a new boss fresh from New York, everywoman Savannah can’t risk a misstep at work, but she’s also on a tight deadline for revising her manuscript. She hides it in a secret room in the building’s attic, thinking it will be safe from prying eyes, but when she returns to retrieve it, an anonymous editor has left jarring, albeit sometimes reasonable, critiques in the margins. So begins a back and forth dialogue filled with clever banter and personal confessions. This adorable workplace romance includes a few love notes to librarians as well as an inside look at the book industry and is totally PG, but it’s so gosh darn sweet and satisfying that fans of spice may not even mind.”Mary, Raven Book Store
“I often avoid books that deal with political and social issues, I read to escape the real world not to face it, I have the morning news for that... That being said, Michelle Hazen did an amazing job at bringing social issues to the front without making me feel like I was reading portion of the news. This was AMAZING! The narrator did a fantastic job, so much so I would happily have her narrate every darn book I listen to EVER! Specially if she is talking like LJ. I mean... can you fall in love with a narrators voice? or is that just too weird?! Ok, fine, I am weird... :) LJ Delisle was charismatic, charming, big hearted... It was impossible not to fall for the guy. He took his time with Andra, he didn't rush her. He did everything right from beginning to end. Andra was charming in her own right. Although both have a sad past to deal with hers is a little more pronounced as it affects her mental health. I felt for her, and I was proud of her in the end.”Anne, Inklings Bookshop
“This title says it all - Beach Read is the perfect romantic beach read book and not just because of the romance.
