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.

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.
