Wellness by Nathan Hill


I was completely blown away by this -- it was just amazing in so many different ways. Highly recommended.

This was fantastic -- unique, clever, great local color as well as explorations about feminism.

Prom Mom by Laura Lippman


Way too disjointed.

The Last Devil to Die by Richard Osman


Solid mystery, excellent wry humor, and a few genuinely moving scenes.

Self-Care by Leigh Stein



The Plinko Bounce by Martin Clark


Very clever plot with a nice twist. The narrator was not create, especially with the child's voice, but the book was solid.

Review copy provided by publisher.

The Dispatcher by John Scalzi


Good set up, decent novella.

Murder by Other Means by John Scalzi


Interesting premise, but the first one was more interesting.

I've always been vaguely embarrassed by my interest in the Duggars.

How I Won a Nobel Prize by Julius Taranto


What if everyone who had been cancelled moved to an island where an eccentric billionaire ran a libertarian college?

What if a not-cancelled, not-libertarian woman physicist moved there because her colleague did?

This book was great fun, with a fantastic twist.
