The Resting Place by Camilla Sten


This was just dull. There are too many books like this, and this one wasn't particularly interesting.

The Kids Are Gonna Ask by Gretchen Anthony


I really liked this. It didn't try to do too much, so it didn't jump the shark. It just did what it did well.

The Violin Conspiracy


This was stunning -- visceral storytelling, a great mystery, excellent social commentary.

The Swimmers by Julie Otsuka


The first half of this was stunning. The second half was very good. But the two halves didn't really seem to fit together.

The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen


This was just, honestly, annoying. Too many subplots, too many false directions.

The Nineties by Chuck Klosterman


Very insightful. I'm still thinking about this. Also, I had that phone.

A Coin for the Ferryman by Megan Edwards

I just adored this. Most time travel books are terrible, but this was just perfection. It reminds me of Connie Willis.
