The 15th affair
by James Patterson

View in Library Catalog



I really like this author but this book was not one of my favourites. A lot happened but it was a bit all over the place! Wouldn’t recommend.

Picture This
by Lynda Barry

View in Library Catalog



Lynda Barry is one of my idols, and this book is beautiful and inspiring. It's a type art activity/instruction book (how to use common household items to make art as a form of therapy and play, and how everyone is an artist) but contains somewhat of a narrative as well. I didn't find it quite as engaging as "What It Is" (her book on writing) but it is still very worth reading.

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.

The turkey is so silly.

Home Before Dark
by Riley Sager

View in Library Catalog



This is the third Riley Sager novel that I have read, but is the first that I really enjoyed. Home Before Dark was spooky and atmospheric, with the perfect amount of twists and turns. The ending was maybe a bit over the top, but still super enjoyable. It is very similar to the Netflix adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House, which I loved and now want to re-watch!

Wunderland
by Jennifer Cody Epstein

A thought provoking piece of historical fiction that intersects multi-generations. Mysterious, sad, and bittersweet.

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.
