Before The Fall

January 4, 2017

A cinematic vibe while your pulse stays right on the cusp. And in the midst is fantastic character development - both past and present.

Mutual

The Woman in Cabin 10

December 21, 2016

There are probably many reasons to probably avoid cruise ships, and this tense book highlights 6 of them.

The Mothers

November 9, 2016

This is not for everyone but it was a gift to me. It's lyrical yet depressing. Beautiful bummer.

Gone Girl

August 3, 2015

The book that launced a thousand books with "Girl" in the title. But the OG is the best.

Mutual

The Interestings

August 3, 2015

Portraits of friendship and marriage that are poignant and reflective. Wolitzer does dialogue better than most.

Mutual

Eleanor & Park

August 3, 2015

An endearing YA love story with two misfits in the lead.

The Girl on The Train

August 3, 2015

One of the most hyped books of the last decade and I think it's worth all of it. Unreliable narrators are my kryptonite.

Me Before You

August 3, 2015

How do you know this is good? A. I'm telling you it is. B. It sold 20 million copies. I ugly cried at the end…

The Book of Unknown Americans

August 3, 2015

You will be filled to the brim after reading while also feeling a bit empty. A lot of hope delayed in this poignant book.

Jamie

Everything I Never Told You

August 3, 2015

You'll hold your breath. Not because of the action, but beause of the drama. It's a another beautiful bummer.
