It's a Long Story: My Life

I learned many interesting facts about the man that I wasn’t aware of previously, and I enjoyed reminiscing about the aspects of his life with which I was already familiar.


The Harvest Man

If you're looking for a thriller with drama, mystery and a hint of darkness, this is your series. I‘m already eagerly anticipating the fifth book.


Water from My Heart: A Novel

[T]here is dialogue and action aplenty, with intriguing subplots and three-dimensional characters to draw readers even deeper into the complex world of Charlie and Leena.


Hope and Other Luxuries: A Mother's Life with a Daughter's Anorexia

Overall, HOPE AND OTHER LUXURIES is important, informative and provocative. I hope that Dunkle’s story will inspire others who love those suffering from mental illness to speak up about their experiences.


The Jesus Cow

Reading The Jesus Cow is pure entertainment. It's perfect for anyone looking for a good laugh and some sarcastic wit laced with a positive outlook.


Contrition

An unforgettable tale written with insight. A great newcomer in the genre of women's fiction!


Gwendolen

This was a very interest, albeit unusual novel. It has intrigued me enough to read one of George Eliot's novels.


Illusionarium

Reading Heather Dixon's Illusionarium feels like riding a particularly rough roller coaster, and the first few hills are doozies.


Uprooted

Moving, heart-breaking, and thoroughly satisfying, Uprooted is the fantasy novel I feel I've been waiting a lifetime for. Clear your schedule before picking it up, because you won't want to put it down.


Loving Day: A Novel

The disasters make us who we are, and the results can sometimes be amazing — as amazing as this beautiful, triumphant miracle of a book.


The Rocks: A Novel

“The Rocks” is a tragic double romance, told in reverse, primarily set on Mallorca.


Gutshot

Reading “Gutshot” is a little like being blindfolded and pelted from all sides with fire, Jell-O and the occasional live animal. You’ll be messy at the end and slightly beaten up, but surprised and certainly entertained.


The Distant Marvels

“The Distant Marvels” ends with a shocking plot twist that hinges on the failure of translation — a failure that is inadvertently echoed by Acevedo’s novel.


The Millionaire and the Bard: Henry Folger's Obsessive Hunt for Shakespeare's First Folio

Rarely has a mad passion brought forth such a splendid and enduring fruit.


The Book of Aron: A novel

He’s a master of the verbal fingerprint, someone who always appreciates the difference between the lightning bug and lightning.


Medicine Walk

Though death saturates these pages, not a word here is lugubrious. Though revelations abound, there are no cheap surprises.


Another Person's Poison: A History of Food Allergy

The story Mr. Smith tells is fundamentally fascinating, and for the most part he tells it well.


In the Unlikely Event

Blume, whose fiction for adults has the same emotional immediacy as her books for children, makes us feel the pure shock and wonder of living, the ways we get through catastrophe — and the ways we fail.


The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype, and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine's Computer Age

Fracture: Life and Culture in the West, 1918-1938

“Fracture” is history painted with a very broad brush, and there are times when the paint flies right past the canvas and lands on the wall.
