The Genius of Birds

There is another world of intelligence out there, and this is a great introduction to it.


Move Fast and Break Things: How Facebook, Google, and Amazon Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy

The real story is not what’s happening in the transfers between the people in the middle and at the bottom of the scale, but what’s happening at the top. This is now a winner-takes-all market, and it extends far beyond the culture industries.


Void Star

Void Star’s larger drawback is that, as its storylines converge in virtual spaces, everything begins to seem ethereally confusing and abstract.


Behaving Badly: The New Morality in Politics, Sex, and Business

Behaving Badly provides you with a great starting point for the discussion that we all need to have about our collective morality and what we want it to be after he leaves office.


Waking Gods: Book 2 of The Themis Files

A sequel that just may be better than the first book! I don’t know how in the world I am going to be able to wait for the next one in the series!


It's Up to the Women

A fascinating glimpse of the past with a surprisingly pertinent message for modern readers.


Red Leaves

Simons does a good job of twisting the story in a way that the ultimate reveal is a surprise, but it was slow going to the point of being dry getting there.


If We Were Villains

If We Were Villains is so much more than a murder mystery. It explores human nature and the fine lines that separate all emotions.


The Book of Joan

The Book of Joan is a novel that should be better than it is.


Miss You

Miss You is, at times, quite a heart wrenching read. I'd recommend having the tissue box close for sure!


Gone Without a Trace

Gone Without a Trace was almost painfully tense. I knew there had to be a twist coming but I could not for the life of me figure out what it was going to be. It was fun, but almost agonizing as well!


The Forbidden Garden

As with The Sparrow Sisters, The Forbidden Garden features fabulous imagery and detail. The hints of magical realism throughout (maybe more than hints, but by no means overwhelming) make it even more of a (sorry for the pun) enchanting read.


Ararat

It felt like a story that had been stripped down the bare bones, blockbuster style (you know, like a 120 minute film cut down to 90 to suit a short attention span).


Ragdoll

Ragdoll had a lot of promise and it is the first in a series. I liked it well enough to read more, but I do hope the next book will pack more of an emotional punch.


Borne

I instantly fell in love with Borne, and also Borne the character, and I’ve no doubt in my mind you will as well.
This is a must-read.


Borne
Kirkus Reviews : Borne (April 24, 2017)

Superb: a protagonist and a tale sure to please fans of smart, literate fantasy and science fiction.


The Woman Who Had Two Navels and Tales of the Tropical Gothic

Joaquin's language can be beautifully dense; several stories carry sentences that meander through a full page, themes surfacing like fish.
