Ascension of Larks, by Rachel Linden (June 20, 2017)Surprised by this one’s complex approach to grief, unexpected responsibilities, and re-evaluating one’s dreams as life progresses.
- Hate to Want You, by Alisha Rai (August 2017)
- Are You Sleeping, by Kathleen Barber (August 1, 2017)
- The Heart’s Invisible Furies, by John Boyne (August 2017)
My Absolute Darling, by Gabriel Tallent (August 29, 2017)Very upsetting. I saw this on a lot of 2017 lists, but I’m unclear as to why, as I disliked it vehemently.
Any Dream Will Do, by Debbie Macomber (August 8, 2017)Meh.
- The Arsonist, by Stephanie Oakes (August 2017)
- Unraveling Oliver, by Liz Nugent (August 22, 2017)
- Sip, by Brian Allen Carr (August 2017)
Rebellion, by Molly Patterson (August 2017)A little disappointed by the abrupt stop, but the weaving together of four story threads was well done, in my opinion.
A Stranger in the House, by Shari Lapena (August 15, 2017)Fully expected to ditch this after a few chapters, but HOLY LAST MINUTE PLOT TWISTS, BATMAN. Could NOT put it down.
- The Blinds, by Adam Sternbergh (August 2017)
- The Daughters of Ireland, by Santa Montefiore (August 2017)
Something Like Happy, by Eva Woods (September 5, 2017)Inspirational feel-goodiness at its best. Eyes leaked for the last 100 pages. The Golden House, by Salman Rushdie (September 5, 2017)Gorgeous prose. Couldn’t get interested in the story. Did not finish. A Casualty of War (Bess Crawford Mystery #9), by Charles Todd (September 2017)I’m just loving this series about a WWI battlefield nurse who keeps finding herself in the middle of mysteries. Can’t wait for book 10.
DAYS UNTIL I PICK UP THE NEXT BATCH OF ARCS: 9 (ALA Midwinter 2018, Feb. 9-13)
