The Butterfly House | Katrine Engberg
post image

In the last 2 weeks my divorce was finalized and I began the process of refinancing my home just in time for an interest rate hike. The last 8 months have been difficult, but I made it in part due to my love of reading and this wonderful community. After a very hard day of coming to terms with my new mortgage payment, I needed a beer, a book, and some sun. Thank you, Littens. Without even knowing it, you have been a source of great comfort. ❤️

Son of Rosemary | Ira Levin
post image
Panpan

I am so mad that this was written, let alone published! Rosemary‘s Baby was an absolute masterpiece, so I was intrigued by this sequel written many years later. Complete drivel. Horrible plot. Terrible dialogue. I only kept reading for the “twist,” and literally threw it in disgust over the complete cop-out ending. Can‘t imagine why Levin even wrote this except as a money grab or because he hated Mia Farrow (to whom the book is dedicated). 1⭐️

The Girls: A Novel | Emma Cline
post image
Pickpick

Based on the Manson Family Murders, Cline captures the boredom and desperation of adolescence magnificently. Evie is an ordinary teenager growing up in the suburbs when she is spellbound by an young woman in a cult-like group. Evie‘s seduction happens quickly and totally. Missing the novel‘s violent climax only by happenstance, adult Evie grapples with how easily she could‘ve been someone else forcing us to study our own life‘s close calls. 4⭐️

Sixteen Horses | Greg Buchanan
post image
Pickpick

I don‘t know what to make of this book. The atmosphere and sense of foreboding that Buchanan creates is spectacular. The creepy English seaside town rocked by a gruesome discovery is a perfect setting. However, the story is disjointed at times, and I was left a bit disappointed with the resolution. This is a story that won‘t leave me for awhile. A deeply unsettling debut, Buchanan is one to watch. 4⭐️TW: graphic descriptions of animal abuse

A sweet book about an incredibly inspirational man. I enjoyed hearing about how “the Neighborhood” arose and the glimpses of Fred Rogers‘s humor behind the camera. I didn‘t care for Mister Roger‘s Neighborhood as a child (Sesame Street was my jam), but find myself seeking to be more like him as an adult and parent of young children. We may not share a belief system, but there is a lot to learn from Rogers about just being a good human. 3.5⭐️

I was excited about this Romeo & Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai with a heavy dose of fantasy, but ultimately, it fell short for me. There were interesting plot points, but the fantasy/science fiction elements and worldbuilding were very weak. The writing was choppy and I didn‘t connect with any of the characters. This could have been a lot shorter (and not a duology), but it ended on a cliffhanger, so I‘ll give the finale a shot. 2.5⭐️

The Personal Librarian | Marie Benedict, Victoria Christopher Murray

Mehso-so

As a bibliophile and lover of libraries, I wanted to love this book about J.P. Morgan‘s librarian. Belle de Costa Greene was a remarkable woman who absolutely deserves to be a more well known figure in our history. Her intelligence, wit, style, and tenacity are evident and the novel is well-researched. However, I found the book to be a dull and inadequate vehicle to bring this extraordinary example of Black excellence into the spotlight. 2⭐️

The Drowning Kind | Jennifer McMahon

Pickpick

Atmospheric, suspenseful, and creepy as hell. McMahon brings something deeply unsettling to the otherwise common “woman returns home to deal with a family tragedy” trope. She is able to weave two timelines together seamlessly, while also creating vulnerable characters and realistic portrayals of family dynamics and trauma. Oh, and I will definitely be steering clear of dark pools for basically the rest of my life. Shudder. 4⭐️

This is How It Always Is | Laurie Frankel
post image
Pickpick

A bit saccharine at times, this sweet and charming novel follows a family navigating life with a transgender child. Claude identifies as female early in her childhood and is quickly accepted by the family as Poppy. A lot of safe choices are made: a thoroughly supportive and loving family, understanding school administrators, neighbors, etc. Though often painfully unrealistic, I loved living in a world where this is how it always is. 4⭐️

Some books just take up residence in your soul and will never leave. Strayed was not the most likable at this point in her life, least of all by herself. But her writing on grief, the crushing ways it can make us unrecognizable to ourselves, and the wild, stupid, and brave ways we must learn to accept things as they are to heal is so deeply moving. I had tears streaming down my face as I read the final pages. Transformative. 5⭐️

Beautiful debut from a powerful new voice. Adunni is an unforgettable protagonist that meets the traumas and challenges of her life with strength, humor, tenacity, and optimism. Her story is a difficult one, but avoids the “trauma porn” territory that so many other books like this can veer into. I wish we could know what happens next in Adunni‘s story, but I was left knowing she is on her way to changing the world. 4⭐️

Hollywood Park: A Memoir | Mikel Jollett
post image
Pickpick

A raw, poetic, and inspiring memoir from a child survivor of the Church of Synanon (and lead singer of indie rock band The Airborne Toxic Event). Jollett writes eloquently about his childhood, his relationships with his family, and coming to terms with the traumas he experienced. A born writer, Jollett bravely pours himself out on every page. I was blown away by the intimacy he created and was deeply impacted by his story. A beautiful memoir. 5⭐️

TJR does it again with this novel about a 1970s rock band‘s meteoric rise to stardom and infamous breakup. The voices in this book are so real I had to double-check that this is indeed a work of fiction. I simply fell in love with this band without hearing a single note of their music. The interview format of this really worked and TJR‘s ability to capture so many voices so well is a testament to her talent. Can‘t wait for the miniseries! 4⭐️

Dear Child | Romy Hausmann
post image
Pickpick

This dark and twisty novel set in Germany is one of the best psychological thrillers I‘ve read in years. Hausmann packs a lot of gut punches into her debut novel, and I was happy to accept them. This is the best kind of thriller - a true page turner that will have you reading into the wee hours and sleeping with the lights on. I want to say more, but the less you know about this one the better. Just read it. 5⭐️

Exhaustively researched, Rubenhold tells the stories of the five women known as the canonical victims of Jack the Ripper with great respect and impeccable attention to detail. Dismantling the perpetuating myth that Ripper preyed on “common prostitutes,” their stories shine a light on the role misogyny played in their deaths and in the societal narrative still surrounding their deaths today. An important read for any true crime consumer. 4⭐️

This very readable psychological thriller has a bit of everything: multiple POVs, a creepy house, a cult, an unreliable narrator, murder, mystery, INTRIGUE!! I really enjoyed this and it managed to surprise me several times which is always fun. One particular revelation made me audibly gasp. There was a bit of a “modern day V.C. Andrews” vibe to this book that exhilarated my inner 13 year old. 😂 My first Lisa Jewell, and it won‘t be my last. 4⭐️

The Gunslinger | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

I think this book is one of the weakest starts to a series out there, BUT it is essential for your trip to The Dark Tower. Blending western, sci-fi, fantasy, and horror elements, King started something unique when he published this 40 years ago. Not much happens in this book, but the rich world building and characterization provoke a necessity to continue with Roland on his quest despite knowing almost nothing about it. Almost as if it is “ka.”3⭐️

The Fire Next Time | James Baldwin

Baldwin‘s reflections on race and religion are sincere and thought-provoking. These two short essays brilliantly analyze race relations in early 1960s America and can so easily be applied today, they‘re practically prophetic. Unequipped to say more, I will leave you with this stirring quote, “I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.” 5⭐️

Captivating memoir documenting Li‘s childhood in Mao‘s Communist China and his journey from poor peasant boy to world renowned ballet dancer. Though the writing is simple, Li conveys his story with a passion and emotion that is deeply felt. He speaks eloquently about the family, friends, and mentors that inspired him and supported him. The Chinese fables, traditions, and customs that motivated and grounded Li provide a richness throughout. 4⭐️

Engrossing novel centered around a WWI female spy and an unwed pregnant woman searching for her cousin after WW2. With alternating POVs and timelines, we follow these two women haunted by the past on a journey to closure and redemption in the fallout of war. Quinn creates an atmosphere that had me captivated, devastated, awestruck, and marveling at the transformation that can occur when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable. 5⭐️

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover
This post contains spoilers

post image
Panpan

I am in the minority, but I hated this. Ryle is a classic narcissist using his unresolved childhood trauma as an excuse for his abuse. The red flags made my skin crawl from the first rooftop meeting. Hoover‘s choice to make him a sympathetic character who claims “there are no bad people, just good people that do bad things” is incredibly irresponsible, if not dangerous. Ryle is a bad person and did not love Lily. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Aims42 I agree with your review 100%! I bailed halfway, I just couldn‘t get past all the cringy dialogue 😬🙄 3mo
BeckyWithTheGoodBooks I do not judge Lily or anyone that has experienced DV, and think Hoover was successful in showing how you can convince yourself to stay. I, myself, am still healing from years of emotional abuse. I also understand the personal connection Hoover has to this story. However, I think the relationship she was able to establish with the father that abused her mother is a unique situation, and this book borders on romanticizing abusive men. 3mo
BeckyWithTheGoodBooks Lily divorces Ryle and boldly claims that the cycle ends with her and her daughter, but I‘m not convinced. Ryle faces virtually zero accountability for his actions: he remains a successful neurosurgeon and has access to his infant daughter without even a whisper of therapy or professional help. It seems that even in a work of fiction men can not be held responsible when it comes to misogyny and toxic masculinity. (edited) 3mo

Cailey_Mac I definitely agree! While I enjoyed the book and it did pull at my heart at the end, I honestly only saw RED when he first pushed her in the kitchen- after that I was like “why isn‘t she leaving?” But I do like that the author tried to bring domestic violence to more peoples attention. 3mo

Hour of the Witch | Chris Bohjalian

I wanted this book to live up to the “propulsive thriller” description, but these are two of the most inaccurate descriptors on a dust jacket I‘ve ever seen. 😂 Not the author‘s fault, BUT this book is still quite slow and boring. I enjoyed the setting and rebellious female characters, but wanted more. I‘m sure the mystery would be enthralling in Puritan times, but reading this in the age of the likes of Jordan Peele was just underwhelming. 2.5⭐️

I don‘t know how to feel about this book. It is my first Mitchell and his writing is absolutely gorgeous, but I don‘t know if I liked this or not. There were some really gratuitously violent parts, and some chapters that seemed unnecessary in the middle. I can‘t tell if this is a book beyond my understanding and tastes, or just a pretentious one. Either way, I find myself still thinking about it, so Mitchell seems to have worked his way in. 3⭐️

I tried to love this book, but it just didn‘t live up to the hype. I love the concept of our parallel lives catalogued as a library, but found no profound message here. I feel it lacks the depth and complexity warranted for a protagonist with depression and suicidal ideation. I wanted this book to be magical, but it turned into a novelized version of the inspirational posters I had in my childhood bedroom from the Scholastic book fair. 3⭐️

A horror masterpiece. Levin‘s pacing, suspense building, and dry prose gripped me from the start and I read this in one day. The sense of unease, dread, and then full on terror that Rosemary feels throughout the novel is executed almost flawlessly. The clear commentary on misogyny and its insidious nature is much appreciated. A true classic of the genre, its influence has a rightful place among modern horror. 5⭐️

Super enjoyable read (especially when you‘re recovering from COVID). Like, compulsively readable. I loved the 1980s California setting and had an immediate soft spot for the Riva children and the bond between them. The novel takes place over one night at an epic end of summer party that my younger self would‘ve given anything to be at. A great story about breaking free from expectations and the confines of family history. Oh, and ef Mick Riva. 4⭐️

I was 15 years old when JonBenet Ramsey was murdered and I was in the grips of the case like much of the nation. This accounting of the early days of the case was rushed to publication within one year of the crime and it shows. Grammatical errors abound, and it focuses more on the media‘s coverage of the case rather than the investigation itself. Sadly, the mistakes made in the beginning of this case will likely keep it unsolved forever. 2⭐️
