Bird Box
by Josh Malerman

View in Library Catalog



Bird Box is a outstanding book written to send chills down your spine. It flops back and forth from the beginning of the oddities to Malorie, the main character, finally bringing her children to safety, I would rate this 4 1/2 stars only because there could have been more. It was a great book from the perspective of Malorie in the past, and a good book from the perspective of Malorie in the current moment. I love the book because there was so many possibilities, so many questions and choices. Not all answered. This should be a book that all apocalyptic lovers enjoy, and may even change the way people look at the world. Or rather, the way people listen to the world. Overall, this book is in my top 15 of all time.

Blink: The Power Of Thinking Without Thinking
by Malcolm Gladwell

View in Library Catalog



Amazing book to listen to. I love it more because Malcolm Gladwell reads his own book, so the audiobook is you listening to him. This book opens your mind to endless possibilities, and questions that have never surfaced but are now your main question. He shows how your unconscious is as great and wonderful as your conscious mind, yet your unconscious is ten times more perplexing. This book is a riveting book about real life, and things you can apply in your everyday thoughts.Being more of a fantasy or fiction person, this book still makes me what to keep listening and listening. I give this 5 stars because it deserves no less. Even if you don't like the book, the intellectual greatness and the things you start to think about are incredible. Not one person could say this book is not at all interesting or even not worthy of being called ingenious. This is a highly recommended book by me.

Re-imagining of Hillary Rodham's life if she hadn't married Bill Clinton. Fascinating and redemptive.

Dead In Dublin

I liked the setting of the new series as it is in Ireland. The main characters and their introductions I enjoyed. the idea of a lady driver was interesting, just wished Molly would not be so do it on her own. Why do so many of the women amateur sleuths think they are better than the law.

Red, White & Royal Blue
by Casey McQuiston

View in Library Catalog



Red, White & Royal Blue, by Casey McQuiston, is about Alex Claremont-Diaz, the biracial son of the fictionalized first female president of the United States. As an aspiring congressman and politician, Alex takes his role in his mother's staff and campaign very seriously. However, a rivalry with Prince Henry of Wales turns sour at a royal wedding, and the boys' handlers organize a fake friendship to mend international strains that occur because of their fight. Eventually, the first son and prince's fake friendship turns into a secret romance, but they struggle to fulfill their own love while retaining approval of those in their respective countries. This book is great because it brings up the possibility of the figureheads of countries being queer, and the struggles they would face. Prince Henry, especially, has trouble getting the royal family to break tradition and allow him to be openly gay, saying when he came out to his brother Philip, "He was not surprised to discover I am not the heterosexual heir I'm supposed to be, but rather surprised that I do not intend to keep pretending to be"(McQuiston, 298). Another great part of this book is that it introduces the reader to important queer figures in history, such as Michelangelo, James I, Alexander Hamilton, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Red, White & Royal Blue is great for readers who would like to see queer representation in international politics, and really just anyone who wants to see a cute romance unfold. Similar books include What If It's Us by Adam Silvera and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.
