Book Review: The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy

The May Mothers are everywhere. Sometimes I stand at the window, peering out from behind the curtain, trying to get a bit of sunlight on my face, and then I see them. A few hours ago it was Yuko, waling on the shady side of the street, a yoga mat under her arm, ear buds … Continue reading Book Review: The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy

Book Review: Only Human (Themis Files #3) by Sylvain Neuvel

I can't say that I knew that was going to happen, that millions would die because I had discovered Themis and brought attention to our planet, but I was afraid it would. I was afraid ever since I was brought back to life. I felt...out of place, and I wished that whoever built Themis would … Continue reading Book Review: Only Human (Themis Files #3) by Sylvain Neuvel

The Last Equation of Isaac Severy opens with the title's namesake setting up a breakfast table for two in anticipation of … Continue reading Book Review: The Last Equation of Isaac Severy by Nova Jacobs

Book Review: The Glass Forest by Cynthia Swanson

"Ruby?" I said again. "Are you there? Are you alright?" "No," Ruby answered in that restrained voice of hers, devoid of emotion and cool as the water in the bay. "No, Aunt Angie, I am no all right." There was another pause, and then Ruby said, "Aunt Angie, my father is dead. And my mother … Continue reading Book Review: The Glass Forest by Cynthia Swanson
