Nightstand: Wartski: The First 150 Years, by Geoffrey C Munn. I read this huge, beautiful book straight through in one day (in about 7 hours). Now I’m leafing through it, revisiting photos and reminding myself of my favorite parts. And plotting on how to get my hands on a Faberge tiara.
Coffee table: Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn. This dystopian YA novel is creative and interesting, but it feels a little too much like other books I’ve read in the past few years. If dystopia is your jam, this one has a unique premise. But I found it reminded me of The Hunger Games and the Divergent books a little too often to feel truly fresh.
On the balcony: Ash by Malinda Lo. Ash starts out as a Cinderella retelling, but becomes something entirely unique. I really enjoyed it.
