Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government

Newsom's is a boosterish approach: Government openness can result only in improved civic life. Get government out of the way and let entrepreneurs figure out how to use the reams of data collected by government agencies. By creating apps, mostly.


The Gathering Dark

Despite the brief turn-around towards the end, The Gathering Dark is not a book I can easily recommend. My first book by Christine Johnson will now most likely be my last.


Vow: A Memoir of Marriage (and Other Affairs)

At times jaw-droppingly frank but ultimately instructive post-mortem on their 18-year marriage.


A Week in Winter
Kirkus Reviews : A Week in Winter (February 14, 2013)

While Binchy’s stories are sketchier than usual, perhaps understandably rushed, her fans will find solace as hearts mend and relationships sort themselves out one last time.


The Best of All Possible Worlds: A Novel

I really enjoyed the book, but it is more interesting than it is entertaining, so I would only recommend it to those who find the subject appealing and don’t mind a long book completely devoid of action and where everything but the message is subtle.


Everbound

Everbound is a terrific addition to the Everneath series.


Calling Me Home

It’s an extremely powerful, gripping and emotional story.


Vampires in the Lemon Grove: Stories

If, like me, you’re haunted by Bradbury’s calliopes, King’s snowbound resorts and dark woods, Poe’s cheerful murderers, and Mieville’s inter-dimensional insects, but also like a dash of humor with your terror, Vampires in the Lemon Grove is a must-read.


The Daylight War

The pages fly by, each one filled with tension and excitement; there’s never a dull moment, and it’s fair to say that this is the best of the series so far.


Son of Destruction

Pushes genre AND literary conventions aside and digs deeply into the wonderful and petty compulsions and practices that make us human.


All This Talk of Love: A Novel

It leaves readers with much to ponder about the human spirit and family dynamics. An excellent novel.


No Mark upon Her

I think she's quite balanced in style, actually, bridging the gap between lighter cozies and truly darker series, thereby able to appeal to fans of both styles.


The Burn Zone

Give The Burn Zone a try if you want to see a hybrid SF-Thriller, with a well-developed world and massive conflicts looming.


Nobody Walks

This is a visceral, intense read. This is a story of justice delayed but not denied; a story of a brother’s love and a family’s sorrow.


Airtight

David Rosenfelt manages to keep you on the edge of your seat by telling the story from two angles.


The Feminine Mystique (50th Anniversary Edition)

A vastly significant book that has made a world of difference, much of it slowly acquired.


Give Me Everything You Have

Give Me Everything You Have is a fierce and compelling memoir.


We Live in Water

This is funny because it’s true, and horrible because it’s true, and funny because it’s horrible, and so on, forever.


Ghostman

This is the debut of a gifted crime writer who will only get better with his next endeavors.
