Manhattan Beach: A Novel

I enjoyed the novel for its historical perspective, but this appears to be yet another book I enjoyed that others are not able to finish.


Sourdough

Whichever way you choose to read it, print or audio, Sourdough is unique and fabulous. Definitely one I highly recommend!


Future Home of the Living God

Future Home of the Living God not only lives up to Ms. Erdrich’s reputation and surpasses it.


Future Home of the Living God

Clearly, as the widespread heightened appreciation of The Handmaid's Tale indicates, this is the right cultural moment for feminist dystopian fiction. That's good news, at least for literature.


Future Home of the Living God

Future Home of the Living God is a deeply frustrating novel, all the more so because Erdrich is capable of much better than this.


Bunk

In Kevin Young’s implacable formulation, then, “the Trump era” is a hoax, the ultimate howler, one we’re fated to live (or die) inside.


Turtles All the Way Down

This is Green’s darkest, most complex work to date but I suspect many readers will thank him for it.


The Vanity Fair Diaries

It feels a little unfair to blame Brown for Weinstein, who, like Talk, does not feature in The Vanity Fair Diaries. But it is striking how kind she is to other men in it who have since been accused of harassment or worse.


The Eterna Solution

If you enjoy Gothic Romance and Gaslamp fantasy, I highly recommend The Eterna Files saga. I’m sad to see it come to an end, but I am very much looking forward to the next adventure.


Promise Me, Dad

He has a great, unwanted body of expertise in coping with loss. “Promise Me, Dad” shows that he’s willing to make use of it. Imparting what he knows about bereavement is part of his legacy now.


The Cuban Affair: A Novel

The Cuban Affair is a largely satisfying performance by a seasoned pro. Nelson DeMille blends a wide range of story elements and techniques with assurance and daring. And his prose marches to a compelling drumbeat.


The Strategy of Victory: How General George Washington Won the American Revolution

Fleming’s prose shines when he’s got a tale to tell about fighting and sacrifice by men in frayed and tattered clothes who were rarely paid and usually hungry.


The Savage

In a grim, unforgiving world, Frank Bill maps out a harrowing, raw beauty, providing that much-needed sliver of hope in humankind in The Savage.


The Vanity Fair Diaries

To me, Brown’s truest and most heartfelt confessions are about her maternal guilt and ambivalence.


Across the China Sea

The title of the book comes from a crate filled with oranges that came across the China Sea and ended up in the attic of Norway’s psychiatric hospital, where Papa finds it and decides to use it as a bed for the children he has with Mama.


Deadhouse Landing

If you're looking for new epic fantasy fiction read, I strongly recommend taking a look at Ian C. Esslemont's Deadhouse Landing, because it's one of the best and most epic fantasy novels of the year. It won't disappoint those who are looking for fantasy fiction that has depth, style and substance. It's highly enjoyable escapism.
