Even for John Grisham, this wasn't that good.

A Book of Mormons ed. by Emily Jensen and Tracy McKay-Lamb

This isn't a review proper because I have an essay in this book, but can I just say that the other essays are well worth reading and several of them are phenomenal?

Call and Consequence: A Womanist Reading of Mark by Racquel Annette St. Clair

There are very important insights here. I do wish that she had focused more on her interpretation of Mark and less on relaying and then critiquing other interpretations, however.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

This was very solid.

Mormon Feminism: Essential Readings

This is an important book--good for newbies to the topic as well as those who have been closely following it for a long time. The editing is disappointing: I couldn't believe how frequently information was repeated in the introductory materials from section to section.

Dark Corners by Ruth Rendell

I was about to give up on this at the half-way mark because the characterization was so shoddy, but I stuck with it because there were several interesting sub-plots and I was most interested to see how she'd tie everything together. Guess what? She didn't. I really, really disliked this book.

Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl

I read this for Truman's book group. It's pretty good.

The Savage Fortress by Sarwat Chadda

Truman and I listened to this. I didn't really care for it.
