July 2019 in Books

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, Hank Green: Super fun sci-fi meets social media novel.

Unmarrigeable, Sonia Kamal: A modernized version of Pride & Prejudice, what’s not to like?

Started Early, Took My Dog, Kate Atkinson: Really enjoyed how the mystery is slowly revealed rather than solved.

The Swans of Fifth Avenue, Melanie Benjamin: This was fine but I wouldn’t necessarily seek it out.

Bunny, Mona Awad: Psychological thriller or magical realism? Or both? Either way, made me want to re-read The Secret History.

Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead, Sara Gran: More about the people, less about the mystery. Kind of like a lot of the Jackson Brodie series, but Claire DeWitt is a little less introspective, at least in this one.

Rosewater, Tade Thompson: As I said, weird and wonderful. Took a while but it grew on me.

If you only read one, make it either Started Early, Took My Dog, or Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead.
