Social Creature

“A Talented Mr Ripley for the Digital Age” is the tag line that immediately drew me towards Social Creature but also kind of ruined the plot for me, for obvious reasons. Nonetheless, despite some middling reviews, I devoured this book and was intoxicated by the writing style.

The Menendez Murders

As a true crime buff, I knew a lot about the murders of Jose and Kitty Menendez that were committed by their sons, Erik and Lyle.

Vox

Dystopias have always been my reading jam, and I’d heard a lot about Vox by Christina Dalcher, including that it was the “next Handmaid’s tale.”

Last Rituals

With the completion of this “nordic noir” murder mystery, I have finally completed the PopSugar Reading Challenge for 2018 and wow, what a note to end on!

Where You Go

Charlotte Pence has known the man we know as the Vice President since the moment she was born, and in this memoir about her life with her father from his days in Congress to his life in the administration, she takes care to paint a well-rounded picture of a man who loves his family, loves his God, loves his country, and has clearly raised some outstanding children. 

Long Way Down

After being told to read this book by just about everyone I mention it to, I finally sat down and cranked out a reading of Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Two Dark Reigns

Katharine, Arsinoe, and Mirabella return in the third installment of the Queens of Fennbirn series that began with Three Dark Crowns.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic

The world of Harry Potter is still alive, now in a book where you can read about the fascinating collection of Harry Potter related items at the British Library.
