Heidi Heilig's The Girl from Everywhere is fun. It is a slight cut above. The writing is slightly more dense. The characters are a little above average. The story pulls you in a little more. But that is it, just a slight cut.

The story is good. And it

I was surprised that I enjoyed Frances Hardinge's The Lie Tree. It is fiction placed in the late 1800s. That holds almost no appeal to me. But this had so many rave reviews that it begged for a whirl. It was surprising that, ultimately, it is a murde ...more

Stephenie Meyer's The Chemist was just plain fun. It's the perfect beach read, even without the beach. Yes, there is too much romance. Yes, the writing is less than great. Yes the characters are two dimensional, for the most part. But what is wonderf ...more
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
"Finished in one glorious sitting. I don't often give myself permission to do that. Tears 26 pages in because the writing is so beautiful. Read this before you pick up another book."

Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice drew me in. It is the Hugo and Nebula 2014 award winner for good reason. Leckie successfully takes on a perspective shift, then explores its implications. We are used to AI in novels. But why does AI have to be restrict ...more

A Study in Charlotte is a thoroughly enjoyable mystery by Brittany Cavallaro. And there you have it; a mystery that I enjoyed. How unusual.

"Why did he enjoy it" is whispered through the crowd. Ok then, she created edgy characters that are interacting
