2023 Book Review: Not a Happy Family

Not a Happy Family by Shari Lapena  A Mystery/Thriller, 2021 by Pamela Dorman Books, 344 Page  What I Didn’t Like: There’s definitely a lot of out of touch rich people in this one. I’m not overly sensitive to that and I even noticed. Spoiled and entitled would describe this entire family.  The 3rd person omniscient... Continue Reading →

2023 Book Review: The Woman in the Window

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn A Mystery/Thriller, 2018 by William Morrow, 455 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Content warning: Some of the language surrounding mental health is insensitive. Most of it is the character talking down about herself, but still worth watching out for. Short choppy sentences. It’s relevant to the plot... Continue Reading →

2023 Book Review: What Should be Wild

What Should be Wild by Julia Fine A Fantasy, 2018 by Harper, 368 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Consider this a content warning: there are scenes in this book where a character is held captive.

2023 Book Review: The Ship of the Dead

The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan MG Fantasy, 2017 by Disney-Hyperion, 410 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: There are some slower spots in this one. They’re likely important and intentional but it’s worth mentioning. It made it feel longer than the first ones.  I’m a Loki fan. That’s dangerous with this series. More... Continue Reading →

2023 Book Review: Truly Madly Guilty

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty A Contemporary, 2016 by Flatiron, 415 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: If you hate spoilers, skip this bubble. Content warning: drowning, death. Much of this one feels like nothing is happening. You’re essentially waiting to find out about something important but nothing much is happening, if that makes sense. ... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Graceling

Graceling by Kristin Cashore YA Fantasy, 2008 by Harcourt, 471 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Starting mid action, in this case, is off putting because you feel immediately confused like you’re missing something.  Not reflected in my rating but the noises between scenes on the audiobook get old FAST.  This is YA (which I would...
