I don't remember why I put this on hold but I'm glad I did. A fascinating character study of Malka, a little Polish girl who accidentally immigrates to the US in the early 20th century. Looking back on her life as a septuagenarian embroiled in a publ...more

It was really weird, at first, to read a Nesbo book that wasn't in the Harry Hole series. Once I got into the story, though, I actually liked that it wasn't weighed down by series baggage. Sonny is in prison serving sentences for various terrible cri...more

This was just a fun read. I've read a few She-Hulk comics in the past, but it's been a long time. This is basically chick lit with some fun superhero action thrown in to make it more interesting. Fun characters and a pretty interesting plot, too.

Even though I'm giving them both 4 stars, I definitely liked this better than Annihilation. It's a completely different type of story - more of a political or bureaucratic thriller than science fiction. I'm really interested to see what happens in th...more

I'm way behind on my updates again...

This is a very creepy, quick read about a group of women on an expedition to a place called Area X. I'm really struggling in my attempt to describe it. Matt explained it to me as The Ruins by Scott Smith, but bett...more

YOU GUYS. How did I not know there was a new Veronica Mars mystery series that picks up right after the movie? Thankfully, Matt has my back and brought this straight home for me when he saw it on the new book shelf at the public library.

I was digging this book pretty seriously for the first half, which was like a lovely mix of historical fiction and some Chinese folklore. Then it moved into the "thriller" part which, ironically, was a total snooze.

I had to sit on this one for a few days after finishing it, because I couldn't really decide how I felt about it. Basically: Laurel starts high school and begins to write a collection of letters to dead people, telling them about her life and about h...more

My sister texted me a picture of this book with the message, "This is really weird. I think you'd like it."

But I didn't like it. I LOVED IT.

I pretty much loved everything about this. Alice and Rabbit Hatmaker are twin high school seniors who go to a...more
