Well done dystopian fiction that isn‘t hung up on that fact that it‘s dystopian.
Starts off at 3 stars, dips to 2, then climbs to 4 stars, ending with “shut up don‘t talk to me I have to read this more than breathe right now” 5 stars.
Author warns at the beginning to avoid spoilers in reviews, so I‘ll shut up now! Just go read it!

Coming of age story set during WWII in Hungary, but so much more than just the story of a young girl.
Gina is sent away to The Matula, an all-girls boarding school, and is soon ostracized and plans her escape.
But the real reason behind her being sent away is slowly revealed, and the teachers are involved.
Gets slow in the middle and has a bent toward YA, but definitely worth the read.
Thanks to Edelweiss!

This was lame.
Heavy foreshadowing, often without follow-through.
And the “scary” part wasn‘t even included. We just know that something scary happened down in the basement and everyone was afraid.
And I‘m responsible for picking this for bookclub 😬

Had a interesting premise and author/collaborative back story.
Maybe I‘m the wrong audience for this book. I never want to disparage any novel. But I found it to be vague, flowery, glib - like a teenager describing her inner turmoil in her diary who desperately wants to be seen as deep and philosophical.
The plot is hazy, the backstory surreal, and the resulting story comes off as adolescent to me.

Historical sea adventure! The author based this novel on the biography of his ancestor, Eli Morgan, as he rose from greenhorn to packet ship captain in the early 1800s, all the while searching for his brother who went missing at sea under dubious circumstances.

Pick! I love historical fiction from these 3 authors.
The story follows the lives of three women in Paris in different time periods: WWI, WWII, and the 1960s. Their stories are all connected, and reading as the relationships among these women unfold makes for a great story.
Many thanks to Edelweiss for the advance copy.

It was okay.
A little too superficial, gumshoey, plucky heroine is calm in a crisis.
But happy to finally know what this series is all about. Probably won‘t be reading more, unless they get more interesting- any advice?

Lcsmcat They make good audiobooks for commuting - interesting enough to hold the attention but not so engrossing that you cause accidents. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2mo

Well, this was different.
I gave it a pick for originality, although I‘m not sure all the kinks in the story were resolved or expained.

Interesting idea: 4 idealistic Berkeley students go to a small town in Georgia to stage a “performative protest” of a Civil War re-enactment.
Unfortunately, this fell prey to Iowa Writer‘s Workshop Syndrome. The author loves to indulge in academic tangents that only serve to distract the reader from his actual relevant points.

As weird as expected, but also interesting and poignant.
Lucy, teenage orphan, goes to a field every Sunday to “spend time with” (euphemism) “the funny men” - veterans from recent WWI who are so disfigured they have to wear masks.
It‘s sinister at first, but as you learn these men‘s stories, they become more sympathetic.
It‘s a little convoluted at first, so give it some time.
⚠️ There is rape/prostitution, but only referenced indirectly.

Loved this book!
Loosely based on the life of Madame Tussaud.
Nicknamed “Little,” Marie learns wax-working from her guardian, then becomes involved in casting heads of murderers, villains, and those gruesomely killed during the French Revolution.

The illustrations throughout were a fun addition, also.
