My Reviews

A Man Called Ove: A Novel by Fredrik Backman
 
Fun, Insightful, Beautiful
A Man Called Ove

Sweet tale but somewhat slow and lacking depth. I rated it three out of five stars because I found it engaging due to its different approach, but not any higher since that engagement began to wane upon further reading.

The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls
 
Interesting, Inspiring, Dramatic

The Glass Castle remains one of my all time favorites! I have often wondered at the “inside” lives of the desperate and poverty stricken homeless we sometimes cross. This book takes you there and holds back nothing. Great read!

Still Life by Louise Penny

Adventurous, Interesting, Informative

My book club’s all-time favorite! We were, one and all, immediately captivated by the story and held fast when we fell in love with the characters. I would have never read this, so I am tickled that a book club member suggested it; otherwise, I would have missed this gem. Read it!

Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns
 
Interesting, Fantastic, Beautiful

To Kill a Preacher by E Paul Jones
 

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

What She Left Behind by Ellen Marie Wiseman
 
Book Club Recommended
Dramatic, Informative, Addictive
Compelling

The plot is one that grabs you right away, and the short chapters keep the intrigue high and the subject matter from being too morose. I read this quickly and enjoyed finding out how the characters came together, as well as discovering the sad history of the mental facilities of old. Nice book club selections! I’d read this author again.

Mindhunter

Mindhunter explains the science behind criminal acts we hear about every day while chronicling the evolution of profiling that is the personal story of John Douglas. This book is a captivating autobiography of a forensic pioneer whose ideas helped changed criminal detection in our lifetimes. Although the actual cases listed are disturbing, the raw exposition leaves us at enough distance that we can keep on reading. Fascinating!

 
Brilliant, Epic, Boring

This book is one of my all time favorites because the main character becomes your adopted friend. This story could be a how-to book about accepting those who are different from us while we fall in love with him and his story.

 
Romantic, Beautiful, Dramatic

 
Fun, Optimistic, Adventurous

A fun read with different characters than my usual reads: elderly, quirky, and eccentric. I enjoyed the ride.

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
 
Dramatic, Addictive, Interesting

 
Adventurous, Dramatic, Interesting

From the first chapter, I wanted to know more. Female spies during the war is NOT a boring, historical read! I didn’t want it to end!
