Spindle's End, by Robin McKinley
(on my kindle from back home)
Unfortunately, the beauty of this book was completely lost because I read it in airports humming with people and noise and nonsense and people who chew McDonald's burgers sloppily. I think it deserves another read.
The Welsh Girl, by Peter Ho Davies
(on my kindle from my library back home)
A story of a German prisoner-of-war, a Welsh country girl and a German Jew interrogating a high-ranking German officer...a fascinating look at three parts of the war I hadn't really thought about before.
I also re-read Sabriel, by Garth Nix...it's odd that reading a book about death soothes nightmares, but it certainly helps me sleep more soundly.
