Meh. Maybe TOMORROW will be different. Good characters but they only get marginally developed over the course of one day in the life of a crazily self centered woman.

The Loney: Costa Shortlisted 2015 | Andrew Michael Hurley

Blahhhhhhh. It's all atmosphere, no action. And even when there IS action, it's kind of a slooooooow build to whatever it is. Hoped it would get better, and it wasn't *terrible* but probably isn't worth your time.

An eerie trip into a 70s era cult and the reverberations of members actions decades later. Really well written and thoughtful page turner.

Founding Fathers get all the glory, but if they made it to the office of President, odds are high their wives has a lot to do with their getting there. Louisa Adams' story sheds light on the era and her own personality. Read it, then don't forget to vote.

A practical pairing. This book is so necessary, if a little overlong. A parody, sure, but actually useful too for anyone wants to figure out how to say "no" more. Without being an asshole.

Melancholy Accidents | Peter Manseau

It's like someone distilled true crime stories from three centuries down into tweets. But in a good, historic, powerful kind of way. Kudos to @Melvillehouse for great design as well.

This is such a beautiful, powerful story. Making history so immediate and doling out heartache and hope in near equal measure. Stunning achievement.

Weirdly addictive even though it's, at times, completely absurd.

The combination of barbaric taste buds and denim on denim had set Jill's teeth so sorely on edge that her jaw locked for a couple of minutes.

Part memoir, part art history, part sociology. All fascinating and so well told. You'll learn, you'll laugh, you'll ponder.

Kind of a long, but sometimes enjoyable, journey to a foregone conclusion.
