Belong To Me (sequel to Love Walked In)

books

Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos

Fun walked out. Sharp-witted suburban satire becomes melodrama. Gorgeous writing.

Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh

Multi-lingual dialects are nincum-noodle. Dense, strange,  terribly cruel colonial India.

The Martian (Highly Recommended**)

books

 

The Martian by Andy Weir

A blast. Fun with science. Snarky humor. Near-death experiences. Perfection.

**I considered another rating I’ll call, “Read this book, read it right now, it’ll take 2 days considering all the sleep you won’t be getting, so clear your calendar and read it now. I’ll wait.” But that would be too long, so I went with, “highly recommended.”
