Read This Now: The Index

What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!

I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon So many questions have always surrounded Tsarina Anastasia. I think we all secretly wanted this young princess to be alive. This novel moves you and makes you block out the noise around as you step back in time and witness the young girl and the penniless older woman who claimed to be the only survivor of the Romanovs. Such passion about the subject comes through and makes you wonder and believe.

I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon ($26.95*, Doubleday Books), recommended by Page 158 Books, Wake Forest, NC.
