Hidden Pictures: A Novel | Jason Rekulak

Audiobook pick:
A cool mystery that was a bit spooky at times, but not really scary.
I've heard the physical book had some pictures that added to the story. I might grab a copy to check that out!

The Change: A Novel | Kirsten Miller

This book was good. Very cool concept and characters. Lots of evil and clueless male characters...so the feminist male-bashing had me rolling my eyes at times. But I enjoyed the fantasy elements and the mystery.

Lily and the Octopus | Steven Rowley

Audiobook pick:
I wasn't such a fan in the beginning, it just came across as bizarre and the main character wasn't my favorite.

However as the book progressed it became clear this is an amazing read. It tackles the subject of love and grief in such a relatable and raw manner. Laughter through tears. Elements of fantasy. Oof this one will definitely stick with me.

EatSleepRead I also might add this author penned The Guncle. Different vibe but same great writing. 3w

This was really good. A ghost story wrapped with just the right amount of mystery and sexual tension.

I really wavered between liking this one and being disappointed. So much potential here. Such a cool concept overall. The cover art is beautiful. But, the story felt a bit too drawn out and I could have done with a lot less of the backstory. The twists were really predictable.

Duma Key: A Novel | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

Audiobook pick:
This has a slow build to a great ending. Definite Lovecraftian vibes throughout. Kind of a bizarre story line overall. (no surprise with this author)
Jerome Wireman may be one of my favorite characters in a novel.
The narrator was really good too. I will be hunting for more under his name.

Wow, amazing novel about family and addiction. This is also a murder mystery and the twists threw me. Usually a novel this length takes me longer, but I couldn't put this one down.

The Paris Apartment | Lucy Foley

This one kept me interested. I didn't really care for any of the characters however. Throwing together a group of miserable people in a stressful situation seems to be this writer's "thing". I did love the descriptions of Paris, the food, the wine...

Simple fantasy tale about a talking cat and a boy that works in a second-hand bookstore.
"Books have souls," repeated the cat softly."A cherished book will always have a soul. It will come to its reader's aid in times of crisis".

Neuromancer | William Gibson

Mind blown, open wide.
This author coined the term "cyberspace". He vividly built a world that would be later called cyberpunk. This sci-fi classic was NOT an easy read for me, but worth it.

Beautifully written and narrated. Character driven, a bit slow at times. This storyline basically fed off of tragedy. Kind of depressing overall.

I have tried to get into this one a few times and am just going to call it. I'm not sure what it is exactly (a bit too slow in the beginning?...) Just not feeling it at this point and too many others I want to get to.

This book was almost a pick, but there were a few weird parts near the end (specifically around the death of her Gran) that I just wasn't a fan of. Despite that, the main character was unique and interesting.

This book is crazy funny. If you work from home (as I do) you will definitely laugh through the beginning, it is just spot on. Suspend reality and you will enjoy this one.

This is a trippy book. 🤔 It kind of opens your mind, turns it inside out, and hands it back to you. Elements of science and philosophy.

Yuki_Onna What a great review! 🙌 What a great sentence... 'It kind of opens your mind, turns it inside out, and hands it back to you.' Beautiful. 6mo

This book was unexpectedly good. A puzzle and family drama. The setting, a tragedy, including the following court case. There was also some very honest discussion about parenting special-needs children, immigration, and dysfunctional marriages.

Great novel!! I may have to purchase a physical copy. Much deeper than the cover suggests. I pretty much pictured Daniel Levy as the main character, it's hard not to... This is one I would love a sequel to follow up on what happens next for him. 🌴
