Moving along!

  • Huntress, by Kate Quinn (Undated) A fascinating, imaginative piece of historical fiction from three perspectives, all surrounding post-WW2 Nazi-hunters.
  • The Most Fun We Ever Had, by Claire Lombardo (June 25, 2019) I adored this. It’s a family, in all its permutations of relationship, and illustrates how one loves one’s family and wants to punt them into next week at the same time.
  • Patsy, by Nicole Dennis-Benn (June 2019) I might try this as an audiobook. Reading Jamaican patois proved more difficult for me than I anticipated.
  • The Islanders, by Meg Mitchell Moore (June 2019) Seemed kind of predictable. Did not finish.
  • Travelers, by Helon Habila (June 2019)
    Not really sure what to do with this one. I liked the first two sections, but then got really confused.
  • Mostly Dead Things, by Kristen Arnett (June 4, 2019) An odd but compelling story of family, grief, responsibility, and taxidermy.
  • Costalegre, by Courtney Maum (July 22, 2019) Skating on the edge of magical realism. Kept raising plot points and never resolving them. Very annoying, and 200 pages of my life I’ll never get back.
  • Beirut Hellfire Society, by Rawi Hage (July 2019)
  • Protect The Prince, Crown of Shards #2, by Jennifer Estep (July 2019)
  • The Nickel Boys, by Colson Whitehead (July 16, 2019)
  • The Peacock Summer, by Hannah Richell (July 2, 2019)
  • Gravity is the Thing, by Jaclyn Moriarty (July 2019)
  • The Golden Hour, by Beatriz Williams (July 2019)
  • The Hotel Neversink, by Adam O’Fallon Price (Aug. 6, 2019)
  • The Perfect Wife, by JP Delaney (Aug. 6, 2019)
