I don't think we have similar tastes in books but you can maybe check out the blurbs and decide on your own.I need to stop getting bogged down in nonfiction and go on a page turner binge. Anyone have recommendations for hard scifi?
The Hunting Party got quite good. I'm 60% in now as I started it and then got bored, but I picked it up again today. It did have a description of a deer being killed that I didn't appreciate, but I guessed that it would have that type of content from the title!I read The Guest List by Lucy Foley yesterday and I really enjoyed that. I'm starting another by her today - The Hunting Party.

One night I was having trouble sleeping and I needed a new audio book. I didn't want to get out of bed and look at my lists and what not and I didn't want to take the time to search around. So I just downloaded the first thing that came up in the Hoopla recommendations. I finished it last night and completely enjoyed it. this morning I googled it and I'm not the only one who liked it.
Its only available as an audiobook on Hoopla but I just checked and my library has it in every format. Amazon has it too,

-- Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods and winner of multiple Nebula, Hugo, and Locus Awards
"Victoria Schwab sends you whirling through a dizzying kaleidoscopic adventure through centuries filled with love, loss, art and war -- all the while dazzling your senses with hundreds of tiny magical moments along the way.

-- Naomi Novik, Nebula and Locus Award-winning author of Spinning Silver
