Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. So good. Could not put it down. A little mystery, a little love. Set in the 1960s in North Carolina. Gave it a 5/5 star rating.

Delicious Foods by James Hannaham. This novel deals with human trafficking and is told from two perspectives: the son of a woman who has gone missing, and the woman’s internal monologue led by the drugs that she is taking. The language is a bit more forceful, but the imagery, voices, mood and themes are very distinct and incredibly engaging. It's my favorite book.
