asha | 29 comments Looking for works with multiple interwoven narratives-separate story arcs that are either connected or eventually come together, much like Blue by Kayce Stevens Hughes or the musical/song cycle Ghost Quartet. I especially want to read more circular stories

Eyeliner of the Gods and Chloe, Queen of Denial are 2 books about the same happenings as seen by 2 different teenaged girls. They were also written by different authors which is why I put both title down.

Tris Crescent | 87 comments The Graceling series by Kristen Cashore comes together like this. Book 1 is “Graceling.” YA.

The Alexandria Quartet is four books by Lawrence Durrell, told from four different vantage points (1st person usually or always), about the same group of people. Literary fiction set in Egypt.

The Raj Quartet is similar but all the books are written from an omniscient viewpoint. Covers India in the 20th century during the years before and up to partition in 1947.

Tris Crescent | 87 comments @Asha.
Scroll down past the comments. Under the “Add a Comment” option, there should be “Topic Notification Settings.” Tap that, then tap the switch next to “Notify me when the topic...is updated.” Once you do that, a notification pops up asking if you want email notifications as well (select “email me”).

If you want notifications from the app in general, you’ll need to make sure you have notifications for the app on (usually found in your phone’s settings).

Mandy (manduck) | 112 comments Nick Lake has one called 'In Darkenss' (which wasn't easy to tag as there are numerous books with similar titles). It goes back and forward between modern Haiti (a boy trapped in the rubble after an earthquake) and historical Haiti.
I absolutely loved this book!
