Mrs. K's Titles



Uprooted
Uprooted by Naomi Novik (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
I would recommend this one. Although I wasn't thrilled with the audiobook. The narrator's thick accent (as well as her deadpan style of recitation) was distracting and her mispronunciations took you out of the story every once in awhile. The story was good and was interesting to see it unfold. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/27/2017

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan (Other Fiction)
Very pleasant read. Just when you think the author is going for the secret society mumbo jumbo, the plot twists. Part mystery (with no dead body) part fantasy (without real wizards), with a dash of romance. There you have it. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/27/2017

The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert
The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield (History/Biography)
Rosaria Butterfield tells the story of her journey from liberal feminism into Christianity. I found this book quite insightful. In telling her story the author sheds light on some aspects of life and spirituality I hadn't seen before, both from the secular and Christian perspective. She is never harsh or preachy, just gently shares observations she has seen in her journey. She does use scripture to support her point of view on doctrinal issues. Since she was a guest speaker on Focus on the Family concerning sexual identity I was hoping for a little more insight into Christianity and homosexuality. However, it was well worth the read and I enjoyed getting to know her and learning from her story. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/14/2017

Home by Harlan Coben (Mystery/Suspense)
The latest installment of the Myron Bolitar series. Parts are told from Win's perspective which is new. I little miffed that I need to read the Mickey Bolitar books if I want to know some crucial life events that have occurred prior to this story. Good book, but I've come to expect the unexpected so it's um.... expected :) -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/08/2017

Live Wire
Live Wire by Harlan Coben (Mystery/Suspense)
I re-read this so I wouldn't be too lost when I read the latest Myron Bolitar book "Home". I was surprised at how much I'd forgotten lol! I knew it had been awhile since the last MB book, but didn't realize it was 6 years ago. This book is filled with typical Coben plot twists and turns. They used to be jaw dropping, but I've come to expect them. I don't want to discourage anyone from reading this, but like most series you really need to be in on the character's back story. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/08/2017

Turbo Twenty Three
Turbo Twenty Three by Janet Evanovich (Mystery/Suspense)
I'm starting to lose interest in this series. The author is spending more time writing/developing characters than an actual plot or mystery. It was fun, but after 23 books of the same old stuff, I think I have better things to do. Besides, a hamster that lives 23 years? :) -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/08/2017

Frenzy
Frenzy by Robert Liparulo (Mystery/Suspense)
This book series is full of plot twists, cliff hangers, and run for our lives suspense. As noted in review of first book, if you take these as one long serial instead of 6 individual books, it'll be a little more realistic. I can't imagine reading any one of these books by itself. I can't write anything about the ending without giving too much away. So, I recommend these books. They're good clean fun, definitely juvenile fiction ('nuff said). I feel fortunate to be able to read them sequentially after they've all been published. Not sure I would've kept up with it if I had to wait for the next book to be written/published. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/01/2017

House of Dark Shadows
House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo (Mystery/Suspense)
Good book series, and worth the read, but you can't really look at these books individually. They read more like a serial than a series. If you hate cliff hangers make sure you have all the books before you start. I find it helpful to view the series as one really long book with 6 chapters :) -- Added by Mrs. K on 01/26/2017
