What We’re Reading This Week

Sharp ObjectsSharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

This was the first book I’ve read in a long time that had me completely, and utterly hooked from page one. I couldn’t put it down—anyone who was in the store while I was reading Sharp Objects could have found me with my nose in the pages, occasionally gasping over the newest twist. This was a delightfully horrifying, fast-paced read. Read the book before watching the show—you won’t regret it.

hazel wood

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

From the first page you feel like you’ve stepped into something dangerous and dark. Alice is beautiful and complicated, just like her story. Her temper is a force to be reckoned with. The Hinterland chills you to the core. Each new character has a story that needs to be told. The Tales of the Hinterland are the fairy tales you’ve always wanted. The writing has a creepy, dream-like quality that makes the story so much more delicious. I loved every moment of this book.

poppy war

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

Kuang’s debut novel is an impressive feat. Her world building is so strong and so immediate that you can’t help but root for the defiant protagonist. The Poppy War deftly blends YA and adult science fiction/fantasy conventions that will leave a wide range of audiences wanting more.
