The Widows of Malabar Hill” by Sujata Massey. How did SPL know that I bought this book a while ago and haven’t gotten to it yet? Massey’s 2018 novel, set in 1920s Bombay, is the first of a series featuring Perveen Mistry, Bombay’s first female solicitor. (Bingo category: Books on Your Shelf)

The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison. What better time than now to read (or reread) this 1970 classic of Black literature, set in post-Depression Ohio? In it, a young girl named Pecola, bullied for her dark skin, dreams of having blue eyes. (Bingo category: Mentioned In Another Book)

The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (translated from the Spanish by Lucia Graves).
