The God Game by Danny Tobey

48651120

Wow, what an intense techo-thriller! I was hooked from the first page and couldn't put it down. The idea of The Game ever being possible is very unsettling. There were twists that I didn't expect especially the ending. I would love to read more books by this author!

The Girls With No Names by Serena Burdick

48654919. sy475

An excellent read! I enjoyed learning about the lives of women at the turn of the century. The women in this story are strong, courageous and overcame many hardships to ultimately triumph over a society which tried to limit them. I would love to read more books by this author!

I loved this immersive look at seasons 1 to 4 of Black Mirror. Learning all that goes into making a season of Black Mirror made me appreciate the series even more.

Freckled: A Memoir of Growing Up Wild In Hawaii by TW Neal

I loved Toby Neal's moving memoir of growing up in Hawaii and in California. The culture, the landscape, and the people of Hawaii become more alive to me while reading Toby's memoir. Thank you Toby for sharing the recollections of your childhood with us!

The Kill Club by Wendy Heard

45188714

I loved this book and was hooked by page one.  I really enjoyed getting to know Jazz and Joaquin. The  characters in the story felt very real. It was nice to find out in the author's acknowledgments that the stories of the murder club members were based on true stories which the author had collected.  The action moved along steadily throughout the book with plenty of twists which kept me guessing. I definitely will be reading more books by this author!

The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters

46045317. sy475

I loved this book and became heavily invested in Becca's and Heather's friendship early on. The shift between past and present allows the reader to understand the motivation behind present day Heather's behaviors and choices. The ending was well executed and left me stunned. I will definitely read more books by this author!
