About this author

As the daughter of a U.S. Foreign Service officer, Elizabeth Blackwell grew up in Washington, D.C., interspersed with stints in Africa, the Middle East and Europe--pretty much always with a book in hand. She majored in history at Northwestern University (hooray! more reading!) and received her master's in journalism from Columbia University, which led to a career as an editor and writer for a number of publications that have since gone out of business (surely just a coincidence?). She now writes fiction from her home office in the Chicago suburbs, in between wrangling her three children and fighting for a parking spot at the local Target.

If you have a book-centric Facebook feed (like me), you've probably seen Top 10 Book Lists cropping up over the past few weeks. The general guideline is to list 10 books that stayed with you in some way, off the top of your head and without thinking about it too much. Personally, I LOVE reading these lists, especially the ones posted by fellow bookworm friends. No matter how well I know someone... Read more of this blog post »

Four stars for the compelling writing (definitely one of those books you want to finish in a day). For me, the not-all-that-shocking ending what was kept this from a five-star read. Maybe I've read too many unreliable-narrator thrillers: the resoluti ...more

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
"I get excited every time I hear about a buzzy new psychological thriller (especially one that's proclaimed to be the next Gone Girl, no matter how overused the comparison is), but little by little the anticipation is starting to fade.
