Astonish Me: A novel

There is so much drama and heartfelt emotion in the story and I loved every page of it.


Love in the Time of Global Warming

Love in the Time of Global Warming is full of magic and love and sacrifice that I didn’t want it to end. I am so eager to get lost in Block’s world again and I won’t wait a decade to revisit my secret friend.


Flings

In terms of being realistic, well written, and effective, however, Justin Taylor most certainly has accomplished that.


One Plus One: A Novel

One Plus One was a memorable story that was incredibly hard to put down once I got going with it. I have been recommending it to everyone and will continue to do so!


Between the Spark and the Burn

If you imagine a Stephen King story written for the YA set in a gothic style, you’ll get this book. I think the two books together make a fabulous whole. And if you were like me, and viewed the romance in the first book with distaste, know this book will satisfy you


The Long Way Home

Here, the stately pacing dovetails nicely with the theme of Gamache’s slow regeneration, as he’s drawn back into life after his traumatic recent cases.


Mr. Gwyn

The two intriguingly interconnected novellas that make up “Mr. Gwyn” are beguilingly strange, somewhat reminiscent of Haruki Murakami’s fiction in the way they wander in what’s actually a tightly controlled simulation of aimlessness.


Before, During, After

For all the novel’s lovely description of romance “before,” Bausch is even more insightful when he follows the corrosive effects of anxiety “after.”


Bad Feminist

When she was younger, Gay turned her back on feminism (hence her title). With this book, she has made up ground. Her place in the sisterhood is secure.


Circle of Stones

Elegant, admirable and thought-provoking—but not, alas, engaging.


One Evening in Paris

This is a beautiful, old-fashioned, simplistic love story, set in modern day Paris that will restore your child-like belief that anything can happen, no matter how surreal or magical.


Ruby: A Novel

I cannot recommend this book highly enough!


Mortal Danger

I just hope future volumes have better pacing so that those huge character changing moments have some impact instead of coming and going much in the same way as a mention that Edie went on a jog.


Lock In

Lock In is science fiction for the masses. Count me as one of them.


Plague World

Fredsti’s book is populated by four-square, well-developed characters, and its witty and naturalistic dialogue, throbbing action sequences and sky-rocketing high stakes ensure that Plague World is as effortlessly readable as the first two entries in the series.


Fool's Assassin

[I] was more than happy with the whole of the novel and can’t wait to see where Hobb takes the story.


We Are Not Ourselves: A Novel

We Are Not Ourselves took 10 years to write, and justifies every one of them.
