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 →

The Maid

The Maid by Nita Prose.  I don’t want to jinx myself, but I feel like I keep picking up great books lately! The Premise: Molly works as a maid at an upscale hotel.  We quickly realize that Molly suffers with social skills.  While it’s never explicitly stated, Molly appears to be autistic.   Her view on...

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 →

The Unseen World

The Unseen World by Liz Moore I would not have picked this up if it were not the February pick for Modern Mrs Darcy’s Book Club.  Reading the cover copy, I would have been all in for “a coming of age story”, but not so much with “glimpses into the development of artificial intelligence and...

Things You Save in a Fire

Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center This is a re-read for me because my local library book club is reading this in February.  However, it’s a great book, so I don’t mind.  In fact I have read a few books by Katherine Center (another will be posted soon) and I really enjoy... Continue Reading →

The Year of Magical Thinking

The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion The only reason I picked up this book is because it was a suggested flight pick for a Modern Mrs Darcy Book Club book.  I love a good memoir, but the catalyst for this just sounded a little too morose…and it was.  While there were parts of... Continue Reading →

Rock Paper Scissors

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney   If you like a twisty thriller - pick this one up! The Premise:  Amelia and Adam win a weekend get-away to Scotland. Since their marriage is on the rocks, they see this as an opportunity to reconnect, but nothing is as it seems.  Their accommodations are not what they... Continue Reading →
