The Road (Cormac McCarthy). Understated and straightforward but written with beautiful language and some heartfelt moments. A dad and young son "carry the fire" to the coast in a post apocalyptic cannibalistic world.
Love that feeling. The only thing better, is the excitement and anticipation that I feel when I have TWO really good books to read and I can't decide which one to choose. Yes, I'm a nerd. I've been told.
Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel ~ for those who love history and fabulous writing. This is the second book of the historical trilogy set in the time of Henry the VIII. I can't wait to read the final book.
