A Darkness Absolute: A Novel | Kelley Armstrong

A fast-paced thriller. The mystery wasn‘t as hard to solve in this one but it still retains the dark, foreboding atmosphere and feverish pace of the first.

I am not usually a fan of books which spend a lot of time on world building. I am just visiting, not moving in. However, the characters were unique and their interactions whether good or bad were intense. There was wit and adventure galore. Definitely recommend.

Alot of info about not so great leaders from a really smart woman. I did feel she gave the US a bit of a pass on past meddling that led to and supported various dictators.

A very short story about grief, friendship, family, and finding your way after loss. Have tissues handy. This could have been a bit longer and more fleshed out.

A more academic styled read about historical figures who fought racism which bleeds into the present day artists, intellectuals, and politicians fighting for freedom. It was hammered home that the Black elite are expected to stand for their people while white stars are allowed to be just themselves.

Jilly‘s new sister was born deaf. Jilly‘s Aunt and friend are dealing with racism. This book does a great job of pointing out the pitfalls in the road to growth and empathy.

A fantasy where the humans are destroying everything and everyone...or maybe an alternative reality. Imaginative, adventurous, and quite engrossing.

Two Can Keep a Secret | Karen M. Mcmanus

History bleeds into present when another homecoming queen goes missing in this town where girls go missing and don‘t come back. It is a good teen mystery but I didn‘t find it as frothily engrossing as “One of us is Lying”.

This was so stressful!! I don‘t know which is worse. To be the character Anne Bronte does or does not admire. She puts them all through the wringer.

These essays are a book lovers dream. Engaging and thoughtful. Lively and powerful. An easy way to come up with lists of new-to-me authors and to remember past favorites. I will say it is formatted by time period so if you, like me, have trouble with feeling a disconnect with the older, more formal, writing styles, then just skip around but read them all!!

The Art of the Swap | Jen Malone, Kristine Asselin

Two young girls from vastly different tomes switch places. As the young girls attempt to fit into their “Times”, they learn alot about the differences in language, propriety, and possibilities. This felt like an old story told again in some places; however, that is because I have read so many of these.

This book focused on the ambition, triumphs, failures, and leadership styles of four U.S. Presidents. It is immensely readable and well worth the time.

I liked the distance and moments of social clarity portrayed by the author. This was a concise and yet clear look at societal expectations, the messages we send and receive daily, and what happens when someone defies these expectations.

A pretty good coming-of-age story. The age difference between the boys made such a friendship unlikely, but it was a cute story.

This was a wonderful adventure story of strangers becoming grand traveling companions. It was a little dark and vague towards the end. There was a bit about polar exploration that would be interesting to delve into with kids.

This book led me down many a google rabbit hole and i expect it to continue to do so. It has raised many questions and concerns. I would recommend it and ask everyone to keep it in mind when making choices in future elections.

This was a wild ride of a book. Very disjointed with not a lot of action but still manages to be propulsive.
