Joyland

Joyland – Stephen King

For the longest time, I had it in my head that Joyland was a graphic novel (aka, a glorified comic book), so I never seriously considered reading it. That impression was corrected one day when I was wandering through Target and saw it on the shelf. Curious, I picked it up, and discovered, to my…

The Dinner – Herman Koch

I’ve had The Dinner on my Amazon wishlist for a while, but I don’t actually remember why. I remember reading some list a long time ago of book recommendations; it might have been on Slate.com. I put a bunch on my wishlist and promptly forgot about them. Every once in a while I would go…

Gone Girl

OMGOMGOMG Gone Girl was AMAZING.

I just had to say it because I can’t contain myself until NEXT Thursday, since tomorrow my review of Rebecca is going up. But seriously, if you want to read my review of Gone Girl, take this week to read it because I probably won’t be able to post without some massive spoilers. And I mean, you…

Kiss The Girls

Kiss The Girls – James Patterson

Plum Island

Plum Island – Nelson DeMille

I’ve read a few books by Nelson DeMille before. My favorite is Cathedral, which I really wish I had thought to reread around St. Patrick’s Day, because it’s about the IRA taking over St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC on St. Patrick’s Day, but I forgot. Another is Nightfall, which centers around TWA Flight 800, which…

Gone – Jonathan Kellerman

I picked up Gone a few weeks ago at another BPL book sale. Let’s just say (at least for now) I’m glad I only paid $1 for it. Gone follows Alex Delaware, a police psychologist, and Milo Sturgis, a detective with LAPD, as they attempt to discover who is responsible for the murders of young, aspiring actresses in…

The Girl Who Played With Fire – Stieg Larsson

The Girl Who Played With Fire is the second book in Stieg Larsson’s Millenium series. I happened to pick it up for my roommate at a library book sale, not planning to read the series myself…but then I was bored, so I did, and I have to say the second book was pretty great. When…
