The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Well well well… if it isn’t one of the internet’s most favorite queer adult stories. I am so late to the game to review this and honestly, I don’t think I’m going to say anything that hasn’t been said before or really contribute much to the conversation as a whole…. but I’m still going toContinue reading “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo”

Mexican Gothic

In this chilling, gothic, atmospheric novel about a woman named Noemi, we follow her as she tries to rescue her cousin from the family and house she married into all while trying to understand what happened to her. The most apt word to describe this book is ATMOSPHERIC. You can practically feel the setting andContinue reading “Mexican Gothic”

This novel by Emma Donoghue shows what the realities are in a maternity ward in the middle of the 1918 pandemic. Our main character, Julia Power, is working at an understaffed, unprepared hospital in the center of Dublin and her days are filled with sorrow, suffering, and signs of hope.

The Vanishing Half

If you haven’t heard about The Vanishing Half, then I have to wonder if you pay attention to the reading trends. I’m kidding… kind of. This book has been shared and spread and talked about for months. I can’t go to a media outlet that covers books and not see it. I even saw itContinue reading “The Vanishing Half”

Take Me Apart

Classified as a psychological thriller, I think this did not do this book any favors. I kept reading expecting suspense and tension to be built in the mystery, but it wasn’t there. Take Me Apart is about Kate going through the records of a famous artist, Miranda Brand, as she begins to unravel the hiddenContinue reading “Take Me Apart”

We Ride Upon Sticks

This uniquely original book by Quan Barry asks you: How far will you go for your team? In the case of the Danvers Falcons, they’ll go as far as deals with Emilio Esteves… uh I mean the Devil. This book is funny both outright and subtle, having me chuckle to full out guffaw. Each chapterContinue reading “We Ride Upon Sticks”

The Glass Hotel

You may be more familiar with Emily St. John Mandel’s first novel, Station Eleven, a brilliant novel all about a virus that wipes out of 80% of the world’s population. I read that book several years ago, around 2014, and it has remained with me ever since. I’ve long awaited her second novel, this novelContinue reading “The Glass Hotel”
