All Russians Love Birch Trees

Grjasnowa successfully takes you into the mind of someone whose daily life is filled with painful memories so vivid they merge seamlessly with the present.

Apocalypse: A Novel

Time is of the essence in this techno-thriller, which boasts a nifty premise but doesn’t go far enough with it.

Queen Elizabeth's Daughter

Elizabeth’s court in miniature.

Missing You
Kirkus Reviews : Missing You (March 19, 2014)

The setup is irresistible, the twists generously piled on and the climax suitably pulse-pounding, even though best-selling Coben is hard-pressed to tie all those complications together or produce a payoff that rises to their deliciously suspenseful levels.

Boy, Snow, Bird: A Novel

Readers wanting a sprawling tale of family secrets will be satisfied as long as they are content to let the characters keep secrets from them as well.


Unforgotten continues the easily read series, but it slows down compared to Unremembered.

One Last Thing Before I Go: A Novel

I found myself genuinely caring about this man who was so sweet beneath the crusty surface and would have liked a few more loose ends to be tied, preferably in a pretty bow!

Roosevelt's Beast

Roosevelt’s Beast is a lovely, horrific exploration of an exotic place and time. Bayard’s language is engaging, so it’s easy to turn the pages.

Don't Look for Me

Don’t Look for Me, the 23rd book in the long-running series, didn’t disappoint and delivers everything Estleman fans have come to expect.


Mai’s digressive, even meandering, style slowly worked its way under my skin.

Half Bad

A unique and exciting story in its own right.

Mind of Winter

Her writing is emotional and descriptive but never flowery. She seems to know exactly how to perfectly draw a scene in a reader's head.

The 100

Most of the time, The 100 felt like a romantic novel set in a dystopian world, rather a dystopian story with elements of romance.

Kinder Than Solitude: A Novel

The aggregate is a carefully assembled, sharply observed world filled with achingly real characters. Rarely are ordinary humans given such eloquent witness.

Mount Terminus

This endlessly inventive story about an artistic youth alone in the world reads at times like a more carefully modulated version of Donna Tartt’s “The Goldfinch.”

The Good Luck of Right Now

Everything happens for a reason.
If you can read that sentence without rolling your eyes, you just might get a kick out of Matthew Quick’s twee, offbeat new novel, “The Good Luck of Right Now.”

Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, and a Masquerade

It is only through literary analogies that Mr. Kirn can come close to expressing something beyond mere personal revulsion about what he witnessed in Clark’s orbit.

The UnAmericans: Stories

If this impressive book sometimes makes the sound of a writer still figuring it all out, Ms. Antopol’s soulfulness and wit make even holding actions memorable and promising.

Dragnet Nation

The book is pacy and eye-opening – but don’t count on it making you feel any better.

Dragnet Nation

"Dragnet Nation" is certainly a useful, well-reported study.
