The Miniature Wife: and Other Stories

True natures are exposed and explored in these pithy, fiendish tales. It pays to suspend disbelief, dive right in and revel in the mayhem.


The Riptide Ultra-Glide

The Riptide Ultra-Glide is, like Dorsey’s previous Serge novels, simply fun.


Drinking with Men: A Memoir

As convivial as "Drinking With Men" is, it is also shallow; whenever the deep and personal intrude, Schaap essentially picks up and relocates the narrative, in much the same way she moves on from her various bars.


The Things They Cannot Say

There are, of course, no easy answers, but Sites highlights the importance of treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and sharing stories.


Outside Shot

"Outside Shot" wanted to be the "Friday Night Lights" of Kentucky basketball. It isn't. Still, reading it you'll find a story that, while less sexy, remains worthwhile: a place that's getting by; a sport that's seen fan interest slowly wane; and a team that, in spite of everything else, succeeds year in and year out.


How Literature Saved My Life

At the heart of How Literature Saved My Life is a fear of being trapped (in the self) mingled with a sense that that entrapment is inevitable for humans, that it’s a tragic dimension of the human.


See Now Then

In her new novel, See Now Then, Kincaid tackles the feel of married life as only she can, moment by passing moment. The result is startling and peculiar, and therefore vintage Kincaid.


Me Before You: A Novel

The ending wasn’t what I would have chosen, but I think Moyes wrote a realistic story that will leave you with bittersweet feelings, if somewhat of a broken heart.


Ever After

Tension-filled and action packed, Ever After is one of my favorites in the series so far!


Shadow Ops: Fortress Frontier

A solid improvement from Control Point, with a fantastic set of new characters.


Among Others

Among Others won't be for everyone. It's not a traditional fantasy novel by any stretch of the imagination. However, for anyone looking for something a little different, Among Others is a captivating read that will stay with you for quite some time after you turn the final page.


Impulse

Clever characterization, witty banter, creative exploration of superhuman abilities, and protagonists worth following.


Othermoon
Kirkus Reviews : Othermoon (February 04, 2013)

More substantial and satisfying than it looks.


Ike and Dick: Portrait of a Strange Political Marriage
Kirkus Reviews : Ike and Dick (February 04, 2013)

A well-researched and -written history that will satisfy both Eisenhower and Nixon aficionados.


Miracles of Life: Shanghai to Shepperton, An Autobiography

An affectionate, incomplete recollection of life’s rich pageant.


Anti-Judaism: The Western Tradition
Kirkus Reviews : Anti-Judaism (February 04, 2013)

A bold, impressive study that makes refreshing assertions about our ability to redirect history.


The City of Devi: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : The City of Devi (February 04, 2013)

The melodrama of romantic intrigue is this novel’s driving force.


Swoon: Great Seducers and Why Women Love Them
Kirkus Reviews : Swoon (February 04, 2013)

A merrily readable literary history/dating manual.


Back from the Dead

Back from the Dead is a one-sit read; there is no good place to pick up from where you left off. One page flows seamlessly into the next, so quickly that there should be skid marks on the pages of the final quarter of the book. The beginning will hook you, and there are passages that you will underline and write down elsewhere.


Into the Dark

This is an exciting, riveting and fun series that keeps things moving from beginning to end.
