Chalice by Robin McKinley
I've been a big fan of Robin McKinley ever since I read her retelling of Beauty and the Beast. This is her latest book, about the new Master of Willowlands and his Chalice. The Master was believed to be killed in a fire, but has now come back from the dead, changed, and the Chalice has to save him from the suspicions and the plots surrounding them.
A Mercy by Toni Morrison
Told primarily in the voice of a 16-year-old African slave, this book lets the reader take a close and painful look at the lives of slaves in the 17th century and the effects and circumstances of their situation.
