It has been another busy week of reading from TheReadingRoom community. Here’s a snapshot of some of the books read and reviewed this week by our members.
“Laird Hunt’s writing made this unbelievable story about an androgynous Union soldier believable. It is a very different gem of a book that kept me absorbed from the beginning to the end.” – Suncoast
“… a personal, affecting story about a young girl, whose road trip across the country touches the lives of four teenagers, each of whom is experiencing a personal crisis. A phenomenal debut.” – Simon McDonald Read more about Let’s Get Lost.
“Reading the original versions of the fairy tales is not absolutely necessary, but doing so will demonstrate just how cleverly Wood incorporates various elements of the original tales in her own creations. Really quite brilliant!” – Cloggie1Downunder Read more about Mothers Grimm.
“Imagine, a zombie apocalypse tale that actually encourages the reader to think and yet stays entertaining. If you don’t normally go in for this kind of fiction, I suggest giving it a try. You will be pleasantly surprised.” – cindy.walls Read more about The Girl With All the Gifts.
” This is a debut novel and I can’t help but feel excited at what McCabe does next; I hope he continues to explore hard-hitting themes in unique and interesting ways.” – knowledgelost Read more about Skinjob.
