The Hundred-Year House

The Hundred-Year House is easy and enjoyable, a book for beach read listicles, with all the good, and the less-so connotations that might come with that.

How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky

How To Tell Toledo From The Night Sky is charming in its mix of science with love; this also makes it unusual as a love story.

The Symmetry Teacher

The Symmetry Teacher is, at its worst, a book that cannot be easily blotted out of one's memory. At its best, it is filled with enigmas and puzzles that may just keep the professors busy for quite a while

The Boundless

Oppel's writing is amazing and strong, but I don't feel this is by far his best work.

The 6th Extinction

James Rollins dazzles massively with his newest SIGMA adventure and if you haven’t read any of his work yet.


Despite some character and plot bumps, the exploration of the ideas and setting was strong enough to carry me through to a satisfying conclusion.

The Queen of the Tearling

The Queen of the Tearling is a wonderful novel. If Johansen carries on the way she does, the series is sure to be well deserving of the epic fantasy tag.

The Girl from the Well

The Girl From the Well is creepy as all get out.

Servants of the Storm

Servants of the Storm is dark and definitely weird.

The Home Place

La Seur writes with an assurance that's unusual for a first novel. This is definitely one I'd highly recommend - and one I'd suggest savoring rather than speeding through.


If you're into oddball reads this is truly the one for you. If you're easily frustrated by the lack of explanation in a story you'll want to steer clear.

Season of the Dragonflies

It's a sweet story in the end, one about sisters and family, and above all love. I found myself quite wrapped up in it before too long and anxious to see how it would all turn out!


Abroad has to go down as a favorite of mine this year. It was a powerful read, one that I found myself truly unable to tear myself away from.

Full Fathom Five

There is joy in following these two characters navigate their world and learn new things about it and about themselves. The investigating of the mystery surrounding the life and death of the Blue Lady is engaging and thought-provoking.

The Narrow Road to the Deep North: A novel

I am not sure that it would make a worthy Man Booker Prize winner, though having read only one other on the longlist, I am probably not competent to judge.

Nobody Is Ever Missing

This is a slow, car crash novel, and for some reason the speed in which it moves is merciless, deceptive and you will not put this book down easily.

Sweetness #9: A Novel

We have one body and if we don’t take care of it then who will? Our doctors can only do so much and then it’s up to us. Reading Sweetness #9 may literally save your life.

California: A Novel

While it is a good story, it is not a terribly fantastic one as the buzz may lead readers to anticipate.
