Winter 2018 Reads

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
It was a light easy, read that was entertaining.
Rating: 3/5

One Day in December by Josie Silver
It was a cute romance novel without being nauseating.
Rating: 3/5

No Exit by Taylor Adam
It was a pretty good suspense novel considering there were only a few characters in it.
Rating: 2.5/5

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
I really enjoyed this novel; it was unique from anything else I’ve read. I really enjoyed the main character, Eleanor, however aloof. After reading it, I spent some time thinking about loneliness.
Rating: 5/5

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
I had this one downloaded on my Kindle for a few months but kept prioritizing other books before it. I’m glad I read it but it annoyed me. I don’t understand why the main character was obsessed about getting his wife back after being incarcerated even though he slept with other women.
Rating: 2/5

The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne
I recently read Boyne’s latest novel, A Ladder to the Sky, so when I saw this one in the book swap cabinet on the boat we stayed on in the Amazon, I picked it up. I’m very happy I did because I enjoyed this novel a lot. It was a bit long but entertaining none the less. I also like Boyne’s style of writing.
Rating: 4/5

Golden State by Ben H. Winters
I’ve been more open to sci-fi recently. I really liked the beginning of the novel but it kind of lost me for the last third of the book. There was a lot of build up and not a really exciting end.
Rating: 3/5
