The New Neighbour by Miranda Rijks


This one totally jumped the shark at the end.

The Great Man Theory by Teddy Wayne


This one's worth reading. There is a lot going on here, which means that it would be great for book clubs.

Counterfeit by Kirstin Chen

This was exceptionally good -- it went well beyond genre fiction.

This was fantastic. Highly recommended.

One's Company by Ashley Hutson


This was super clever and definitely interesting, although there were a few weak plot points.

The House Sitter by Ellery Kane


This was just mediocre. The writing wasn't particularly good, the plot particularly interesting, etc. I can't really recommend it.

Meant to Be by Emily Giffin


This just didn't work for me -- it felt way too formulaic.

How to Keep House While Drowning by KC Davis


This was outstanding -- there are a lot of self-help and home organization type books out there, but this one is unique. Highly recommended.

This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub


I thought this was a lot of fun: I like time travel novels, and this one was very well done.

The Summer Place by Jennifer Weiner


I liked this, and I'm embarrassed that I liked this. It's a beach read, OK?

The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill


This just got too byzantine at the end.

The Facemaker by Lindsey Fitzharris


Fascinating -- well written and an interesting slice of history.

Tracy Flick Can't Win by Tom Perrotta


This was a super-fun read, and I didn't see the plot twist coming. Clever and entertaining.

Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson


This was very clever.

Minor Dramas and Other Catastrophes by Kathleen West


This was really good -- I'm kind of surprised I just came across it randomly and hadn't seen it reviewed elsewhere.
