A Good Girls Guide to Murder

A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson As I have mentioned before, I’m not a huge fan of the YA (young adult) genre, but I find a good one can be a perfect summer read.  YA tends to be lighter reading (even if the topics are on the serious side), and the teens... Continue Reading →

Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots

Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots Super Heroes and Henchmen…not my typical go-to topic, but something about this just sounded fun.  And it was!! The Premise: Anna is just a lowly temp, doing office work for Villains.  It’s not a bad gig, until she ends up on a field assignment and is badly injured by a... Continue Reading →

Into the Drowning Deep

Into the Downing Deep by Mira Grant   While Sci-Fi Horror is not a genre I usually gravitate to, the idea of a ship hovering over the Mariana Trench searching for sea creatures suspected of killing the entire crew of another vessel piqued my interest. The Premise: Seven years ago a mega-entertainment corporation sent a... Continue Reading →

The Nest

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney This was a reread for me, and I can’t even tell you for certain why I picked it back up, but I think it may have just been the pretty cover.  I don’t think I cared for it too much on the first read, but I did enjoy it... Continue Reading →

Everyone is Beautiful

  Everyone is Beautiful by Katherine Center My work book club picked this for our February read.  I am a big Katherine Center fan. In fact, I think this is the 4th book of hers I’ve read. While this was not my favorite of her books, it did have me laughing in the beginning, worried... Continue Reading →

Four Thousand Weeks

Four Thousand Week, Time Management for Mortals by Oliver Burkeman This is not your typical time management / productivity book.  If you are looking for a book filled with tips on doing more, scheduling better and meeting your deadlines, this is not the book for you. The Premise or should I say Purpose:  Burkeman has... Continue Reading →

The Kingdom

The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg I don’t often pick up Young Adult (YA) books, but I heard good things about this one and decided to give it a go.  The Premise: The Stepford Wives go to Disney World. The narration bounces around in time.  We know Ana has been tried for murder, and we slowly... Continue Reading →
