How to Make a Spaceship: A Band of Renegades, an Epic Race, and the Birth of Private Spaceflight

“How to Make a Spaceship” is like the vessel it portrays: imperfect and a bit patched together, but ultimately flight-worthy and impressively ambitious.

Greetings from Utopia Park

Hoffman supplies no easy answers. She doesn’t regret her childhood, which comes across at times like a state of magic, but thoughtfully and with great grace, she alters what she learned in her past to fit what she truly needs now.

Perfume River: A Novel

This novel is more a meditation than a page-turner; it’s mournful, with a literal funeral at its turning point. In spite of its various points of view, it returns, as it must, to the protagonist, a man in need of a reckoning.


Replica is at the very least creative and entertaining as only action-adventures can be.

Shallow Graves

It's a great debut and a satisfyingly dark and quirky read!

Devil Sent the Rain

Turner does well in organically weaving both the past and present together - for the purposes of the overall mystery, of course, but also giving readers enough information about Able to really make them connect with him.

The Abandoned Heart: A Bliss House Novel

The Abandoned Heart is a dark read. The whole series is, if you haven't gathered. It's a worthy end - or beginning - to the series. I had the opportunity to read it over the summer and have had to bite my tongue ever since!

News of the World

I loved the scenery painted by Jiles's prose. I am, somewhat, familiar with modern day Texas but admittedly haven't roamed the countryside that much.

The Nix: A novel

If you’re looking for a book that will keep you entertained and also make you think, and will take more than a couple of nights to read, you can’t go wrong with The Nix.

Dead Interviews: Living Writers Meet Dead Icons

Dead Interviews: Living Writers Meet Dead Icons’ conceit is to have living authors pretend to talk to dead ones. And it’s a complete waste of time.

Hag-Seed: The Tempest Retold

Caliban’s imagined afterlife sheds some light on Felix and the inmates’ possible futures, so perhaps the title is meant to call attention to that shift, which adds one last layer of The Tempest across Atwood’s brilliant tale, taking it past the last pages of the book and allowing it to linger in our minds even as we close its back cover.

Future Sex

Born to Run

There are surely stories left to tell, but Springsteen, in his endless quest to craft the perfect setlist, has selected those that best fit his narrative.

Based on a True Story: A Memoir

Fans can be grateful that Macdonald has written the rare celebrity memoir that, through so much blatant falsehood, presents the truest picture of himself.

The Other Einstein: A Novel

It’s a shame The Other Einstein isn’t better because it’s so relevant.

Everything Belongs to the Future

Everything Belongs To The Future excites and irritates in equal measures. It asks thoughtful and compelling questions, and Penny’s prose frequently, and charmingly, recalls the prose of pulpy ’50s science fiction.

A House Without Windows

This, perhaps, is this novel’s greatest endeavor: When you finish this book, do not forget what you’ve read. Do something.

A Memory of Muskets

Veteran Ernst (Death on the Prairie, 2015, etc.) provides a new perspective on the Civil War woven together with a compelling mystery.

Hag-Seed: The Tempest Retold
Kirkus Reviews : Hag-Seed (October 11, 2016)

Deliberate and carefully built, this novel rarely pulls off true theater’s magic of transforming glitter confetti into fairy dust.

Kirkus Reviews : Fidelity (October 11, 2016)

An absorbing read that feels unfinished; and since the FBI’s motto is Fidelity, Bravery, and Integrity, it’s a sure bet there’s a reason.
