A Gentleman in Moscow

Fantastic story, turning the seemingly mundane into something wonderful. One of Obama's favorite books he read in 2017.

The Nightingale

The moving story of two French sisters during World War II.

Beneath a Scarlet Sky

Pino Lella's story as a young Italian man during World War 2. Slightly worse than The Nightingale but great story nonetheless. Starting to warm up to war story genre. Strong characters.

The Book Thief

A German foster child named Liesel Meminger is The Book Thief. The story of her experience during the war. Maybe I'm just numbing to all of these WWII novels but I couldn't muster up as much relation to these characters as the ones in The Nightingale and Beneath a Scarlet Sky
