Fast pace, great characters. Margie Orford's latest book, The Eye of the Beholder, kept you reading right from Page 1.
Great read in Chris Bohjalian's Hour of the Witch.
The Orchardist, Amanda Coplin's debut novel, has been called a must-read book. I really liked it and I would recommend it to people who are able to look past the heavy stuff.
My Secret Sister, a true story of twins separated at birth, was a good read, but a difficult one. I also review three children's books including Annie's Cat is Sad, Blue Baboon FInes Her Tune and Room for More by Michelle Kadarusman.
Small Things LIke These is a powerful, non-fiction story based on the true events of the Magdalen laundries in Ireland.
Speechless - sort of. Earthlings, by Sayaka Murata, took a weird twist at the end.
In her quest of being normal, Sara, who has more a series of mental health issues, finds a friend who inspires her to be herself in this middle grade read from Simon & Schuster Canada.
Oona Britt is an amazing character - brave, strong and determined. A great read in this Matilda Woods' book.
