Review: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This audio will win some awards! Beautifully told story of Eleanor and her coming of age, even if she is now in her late twenties. She's always been a bit awkward, but, hey, she deserves the right. Her story is one we've heard before, but Honeyman has created a unique and lovely voice in her main character. I laughed out loud while listening to the audio--the narrator did the funny parts fantastically!

Great book club read, but I think it has some teen appeal, too. All ages love quirky people.

Review: Die Easy

Die Easy Die Easy by Zoë Sharp
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's so rare that Book #10 of a series is just as good as book #1. But this series is darn good. I'm looking forward to the next one!

Review: She Rides Shotgun

She Rides Shotgun She Rides Shotgun by Jordan Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gritty, dark, engrossing read about a smart girl caught in the crossfire between her dad and the California gang what wants to kill him. I wish these worlds didn't exist in real life.

Review to come in SLJ AB4T.

Review: The Bloomsday Dead

The Bloomsday Dead The Bloomsday Dead by Adrian McKinty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, Adrian McKinty delivered an amazing listen, and Gerard Doyle can whisper in my ear anytime. Even if he's whispering about torture and Irish mob hits. This novel is full of both, and it kept me entertained on a cross-country roadtrip just fine!

If you like thrillers and action movies and kickass characters, give McKinty a try.

Not a fan of the writing style. I stopped reading on my kindle at 23%.
