Twisted Prey

by John Sandford

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

Shattered Mirror

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 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

After Anna
The result is a nail-biting thriller but a terrible mystery, with the third-act jitters so frequently in evidence in the author’s earlier work running amok as they spin out a series of improbable complications, a barrage of shameless cliffhangers, and a culprit ex machina before the absurdly happy ending.

Ready Player One
...sweet, self-deprecating Wade, whose universe is an odd mix of the real past and the virtual present, is the perfect lovable/unlikely hero.

Ready Player One

by Ernest Cline

Camino Island: A Novel
How all these little threads join up is a pleasure for Grisham fans to behold: there’s nothing particularly surprising about it, but he’s a skillful spinner of mayhem and payback.

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.

Wild In Love (The Maverick Billionaires, Book 5)
Their story is perfectly imperfect. They are each their for one another. I am so happy to have read their story. I look forward to anymore from the Mavericks down the road.
