Schooled by Ted Fox


Beginning was stronger than the end, but it was still fun.

The Child by Fiona Barton



The Ministry of Time by Kaliane Bradley


 I mostly loved this, but (as, I think, with most time travel novels) it got a bit knotted up at the end.

Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik


 Probably only worth reading if you are in Paris, and I was, so it was interesting.

Greenwood by Michael Christie


 I loved this so, so much.

Funny Story by Emily Henry

Very Bad Company by Emma Rosenblum

 Great potential, but ultimately just felt like a pastiche of stereotypes about the tech industry.

Last House by Jessica Shattuck


 I don't read (actually read, as opposed to listen to) many books, but this was a rare exception. This was so, so good. It's hard for me to articulate why, except that the character development was excellent, the engagement with social issues worked, and the plot made sense.
