Worried that you could never love another book by this author as much as you loved Station Eleven? You are not alone! But, I've read this and I have to tell you: while the subject matter is completely different, the feeling you got when experiencing her previous novel is just as much a part of this book. Sure, it's not a pandemic novel, and there isn't any Shakespeare....but this book is beautifully written, with threads woven by a pro. If you enjoyed Station Eleven at all, you will love this one too. - Kari

Want to escape to another world? Erin Morgenstern is your author. This book is a love-letter to stories and storytellers, worlds within worlds, and features the most amazing library-type place I've ever had the privilege to imagine along with an author. I loved it dearly.  (Note: Only attempt this one if you're okay with non-linear storytelling. This one jumps around a lot) - Kari

Magical orphans, a sweet love story- this book just makes you feel good. The children (or beings...) are well cared for, the men fall in love genuinely, and of course a happy ending. A sweet story to get you through rough times. - Kari
