Mexican Gothic
by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

View in Library Catalog



I was so excited to read Mexican Gothic because it has received so much hype and has one of the most beautiful covers of 2020, but I was sorely disappointed. Most of this book was a total snoozefest and by the time it started to get interesting, it was too little, too late. I was looking forward to a spooky gothic horror novel set in Mexico, but instead I got a rather boring, slow-moving, and trope filled novel that could have been set anywhere.

L.M.F.

This compelling novel about a World War Two-era Canadian fighter pilot chronicles his final four missions while he was suffering from what would today be recognized as post-traumatic stress. The tale of his struggle to be released from flying further missions and the shame of being labelled a coward brings to light one tragic consequence of war on those who served.

When The Scientific Secrets Of Perfect Timing, Daniel Pink
by Daniel Pink

View in Library Catalog



I've always been fascinated with time and Daniel Pink provides excellent information on doing things at certain times. I've certainly resonated with the behaviours he explained and am applying it to better manage my time based on how I feel. Life can get crazy busy but if you don't take time to make time you'll continue to run in circles.

The Last Lecture
by Randy Pausch

View in Library Catalog



I’m glad that this is a powerful book for a lot of people, but it just didn’t offer me much. In fact, the more I read, the more I couldn’t help but notice Pausch’s privilege and how he came across as entitled and self-absorbed? I have no doubt that he worked hard for his achievements, but he also got incredibly lucky and I wish that had been acknowledged more. My 2-star rating is only a reflection of the book, not the author – it seems like Pausch was a wonderful professor, husband and father.

Slay
by Brittney Morris

I was a little apprehensive about this book at first, because I know nothing about gaming and thought that I wouldn’t connect with the story, but was I ever wrong! I really enjoyed SLAY – it was entertaining, I loved how strong our main character, Kiera, was, and I loved how it tackled issues facing the Black community and Black gamers. I listened to it on audio, which was very well done.
