Book Review: The Truants by Kate Weinberg

The Truants - Kate Weinberg (G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2020) I received an Uncorrected Proof of this novel. All opinions are my own. The Truants is the kind of book you keep thinking about for days afterward. The kind of book where you get to the end and you find your mind casting over the chapters,… Continue reading Book Review: The Truants by Kate Weinberg

Book Review: Frankly in Love by David Yoon

Frankly in Love - David Yoon (Putnam, 2019) I received an Advance Reading Copy of this book. All opinions are my own. Let's start with what doesn't work about this young adult novel. It's way too long. It's over 400 pages and it seems to cover almost everything that could possibly happen to a teenage… Continue reading Book Review: Frankly in Love by David Yoon

Book Review: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

If you could find out the exact date of your death, would you? And if you did, what would you do with this knowledge? This is the question that informs The Immortalists. The Gold siblings are barely teenagers when they seek out a fortune teller who can allegedly tell you the day you die. One… Continue reading Book Review: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

What I Read – August 2015

August was a good reading month. Two things helped. 1) Having no internet for the first twenty days and 2) Long periods of wakefulness with a baby for the first half of the month. (The way I get through nighttime feedings is with a soft light and a good book.) Here's what I read: Half… Continue reading What I Read – August 2015
