Burial Rites: Hannah Kent

This was a great book telling the story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir of Iceland from her side of the story. She was beheaded in 1830 for the murder of her employer and another man, the legend makes her a cold blooded killer, this story shows her as human and at the wrong place at the wrong time. It is a really quick red as you want to learn she is innocent and can't stop turning the pages.

The Longest Winter: Alex Kershaw

This was a well written sort of summery of some events in the European theatre of WWII where it switched from place to place and from person to person as it progressed.

Citizen Soldiers: Stephen Ambrose

This book highlighted several units during WWII and the battles in the European theater. It was a very good book and hit on the highlights of stories he had uncovered.

The Ones That Got Away: Stephen Graham Jones

This is a collection of short horror stories, some were really good (like the first one) and some I didn't understand, like The Meat Tree.

Old Fashion Corners of Paris: Christopher Destournelles

This was a cute little book about visiting Paris and the novel things you should do that aren't actual tourist attractions.
