A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

A Gentleman in MoscowLove, love, love this book! I’ve added it to my list of all-time favorites, actually. A Gentleman in Moscow is smart, funny, charming, entertaining, educational and just all-around engrossing.

It’s the kind of book you are sad about when you’ve finished it. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a read once in awhile that doesn’t raise your blood pressure or heart rate. Amor Towles delivers a great story that takes place over decades, allowing you to relax and just enjoy the ride. Reserve your copy!
