Little Fires Everywhere
With her second novel, Ng further proves she’s a sensitive, insightful writer with a striking ability to illuminate life in America.
Kirkus

Little Fires Everywhere

by Celeste Ng

The Wife Between Us: A Novel
One of the subplots, the one about the bad thing in Florida, was fresher than the main plot—maybe Hendricks and Pekkanen should have written a whole book about that. Easy to read, smoothly put together. A good airport book.
Kirkus


The Wife Between Us

by Greer Hendricks

Before We Were Yours: A Novel
Wingate sheds light on a shameful true story of child exploitation but is less successful in engaging readers in her fictional characters' lives.
Kirkus

Before We Were Yours

by Lisa Wingate

The Couple Next Door
Anne’s wealthy mother and stepfather seem a too-obvious plot device, and they are, while her issues with the very real problem of postpartum depression are merely glossed over or trotted out during faux-fiery monologues. It’s difficult to drum up sympathy for this missing child, swaddled as she is in such a dull and harmless plot.
Kirkus

The Midnight Line: A Jack Reacher Novel
The book makes a rather icky sentimental misstep toward the end. It does, however, suggest something that has not been visible in the series' previous entries: a creeping sadness in Reacher's wanderings that, set here among the vast and empty landscapes of Wyoming, resembles the peculiarly solitary loneliness of the classic American hero.
Kirkus

The Midnight Line

No Critic Review

The High Tide Club

by Mary Kay Andrews

The Great Alone: A Novel
She re-creates in magical detail the lives of Alaska's homesteaders in both of the state's seasons (they really only have two) and is just as specific and authentic in her depiction of the spiritual wounds of post-Vietnam America. A tour de force.
Kirkus


The Great Alone

by Kristin Hannah

Into the Water: A Novel
...even after you’ve managed to untangle all the willfully misleading information, half-baked subplots, and myriad characters, you’re going to have a tough time keeping it straight.
Kirkus


Into the Water

by Paula Hawkins

THE HANDMAID'S TALE
Atwood, to her credit, creates a chillingly specific, imaginable night-mare. The book is short on characterization--this is Atwood, never a warm writer, at her steeliest--and long on cynicism--it's got none of the human credibility of a work such as Walker Percy's Love In The Ruins. But the scariness is visceral...

THE HANDMAID'S TALE
