Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed and has recovered from the festivities. These are the books I finished since Christmas and yet another reminder that my reading selections are weird eclectic.

FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:

Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia The Single Undead Moms Club by Molly Harper Little Heaven by Nick Cutter The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian

Mindy Mejia’s latest novel is a rather disquieting story about the acts we put on for others and the consequences of those acts on our inner psyche. With her tale of forbidden love and lost innocence, it is the type of novel that will be excellent book club fodder for those of you looking for 2017 book club selections.

Molly Harper is and will always be a balm for my soul. Her novels are light and humorous and the perfect way for me to relax and remember not to take life too seriously. What a great way to end 2016!

The new Nick Cutter was also a fabulous way to end the year. It has been a long time since a book has frightened me enough to keep awake at night, but Mr. Cutter managed to do just that for me with his tale of a doomed colony and the devils that inhabit it.

Chris Bohjalian’s latest novel is equally impressive. 2017 is definitely starting out with some stellar new releases!
