The Sun Is Also a Star


The Sun Is Also a Star, Nicola Yoon

So beautiful and surprising. Made me cry.


The Spy Who Came in from the Cold


The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, John Le Carré

Very good story, good twist. Just awfully disappointing ending.

The Unicorn Quest: Secret in the Stone


The Unicorn Quest: Secret in the Stone, Kamilla Benko

Kids' book. Nice and light. Will definitely keep reading the next one.


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Jack Thorne, J. K. Rowling, John Tiffany

Great idea! I wish it was longer.


Quicksilver


Quicksilver, Neal Stephenson

Oh boy, these are getting long.

There's three books in this volume. Books one and three are dense and slow. Book two is awesome. And the thing is, the awesomeness of book two kinda rubs off on books one and three.

But this is just volume one, and I don't think I can keep slogging through.


The Woman in Black


The Woman in Black, Susan Hill

Good, classic-style, English-style horror-style.

Tense, scary and well-bred. But maybe just a tad... too well-bred.

La Horde du Contrevent


La Horde du Contrevent, Alain Damasio

Poetic sci-fi, took me by surprise.

Good.
