Confusing and meandering, I couldn't get into it, unfortunately.
I love how the couple grows--of course, it's all cliche, he being a reserved, brooding man, and she a friendly, bubbly woman. But there's something about the two of them together that had me reading the book all day long. And of course, there's drama. And the drama really spiced things up a bit.
A perfect read for anyone who wants to appreciate woman's footprint in history, is interested in paleontology and fossils, or just wants a damn good read, Remarkable Creatures is it. I can find no fault in the book. From the beautiful rendition of a period piece, to the conversations, the interweaving of history, to the friendship between Mary and Elizabeth, it's a perfectly written novel.
For fans of Outlander - you'll love the time travel perspectives, the mystery, and the Scottish headlands.
A fantastic read that takes you on an emotional roller coaster, Everything I Never Told You is one part thriller, one part human study.
Celeste Ng weaves a deft story, and it's one that's thought-provoking and has you taking the sides of different characters, only to swing back around and wonder if you're being fair in taking sides.
I expected a bit more, since I've loved Arden's other books, especially the Winternight trilogy. Not a bad book, but certainly Arden's weakest.
Study reports we tend to prefer fictional villains who are darker versions of ourselves.
Well-researched, along with photos, headlines, and historical notes, Suspect Red is a great historical fiction read! Even though it's middle grade, I still enjoyed reading it and learned a bit more about life during the Red Scare. The historical backdrop is woven deftly throughout the story, and at the end, there's a list of resources for further reading.
This was a pleasant middle grade read! Though the premise, strange old ghost-like creature controlling scarecrows, seems ordinary, the writing made the book.
