Heft by Liz Moore

Decent. I liked how it wasn't quite Hollywood but was hopeful. But still.

Injustice by Lee Goodman

So this was an enjoyable read with good twists and turns but then the end was completely over-the-top.

Corridors of the Night by Anne Perry

This wasn't perfect--I don't need that much description of multiple emotions playing across someone's face. But I always appreciate Perry's unusual pacing.

Seven Women by Eric Metaxas

One of the best books I've ever read. (One of the worst introductions I've ever read.) Inspiring and powerful.

The Last Week by Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan

This is a great introduction to the story of Jesus' last week.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

I'm completely embarrassed by how much I enjoyed reading this.

All-of-a-Kind Family by Sydney Taylor

Have I mentioned that I've been leading Truman's book group for the last year? Anyway, this was our first title for this school year. It's a charming story.

The Admissions by Meg Moore

The Admissions: A Novel

This wasn't perfect, but it was very, very good. It helped that it was evocative of Marin County and Rhode Island--both places I've lived.

A Window Opens by Elizabeth Egan

The voice and characterization here was fun, but the plot was lacking.

Kitchens of the Great Midwest

So, yes, there were a few great moments here, but it didn't really hold together (and it was too vulgar).
