Martin Quint, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Cambridge Technology Institute, is at the top of his professional career. Beloved as a teacher and internationally lionized as a researcher, he enthusiastically embraces his academic overload. But with a baby on the way, a voyeuristic computer specialist posting things in public that shouldn't be, and a critical tenure case for a junior female colleague hanging by a thread, life throws more at Martin than he can juggle.

  

 

 

In the end, I'm very happy I accepted the book to review. I didn't expect a story that would hold me, yet that is exactly what . . . (M O R E).

Taken from his family, Toby now lives in the Death House: an out-of-time existence far from the modern world, where he, and the others who live there, are studied by Matron and her team of nurses. They're looking for any sign of sickness. Any sign of their wards changing. Any sign that it's time to take them to the sanatorium.
No one returns from the sanatorium.
Withdrawn from his house-mates and living in his memories of the past, Toby spends his days fighting his fear. But then a new arrival in the house shatters the fragile peace, and everything changes.
Because everybody dies. It's how you choose to live that counts.

So wow. Where to begin? This novel about children of various ages had me weary to begin. I don't normally read book about kids, and I most definitely stay clear books about . . . (M O R E)

Literature fiction (adult)

Samuel Grafton-Hall is a man of genius who demands reverence from all. A renowned architect, his point of view is not universally shared by students, critics, and colleagues - but this is of little consequence to Grafton-Hall, for he revels in his misanthropy.
Immune to the barbs of the masses, Grafton-Hall also suffers no qualms about his personal peccadilloes and perversions. An unrepentant womanizer, Grafton-Hall leaves colleagues, friends, and lovers deeply scarred from having known him.
And then there is the murder. The question of guilt is of less consequence than the question of whether the gift of genius makes one irreproachable.

This is no ordinary novel, and is in no way for ordinary readers. Upon reaching the last page, I was stunned wordless . . . (M O R E)

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm the Graveyard Queen.
Restoring lost and abandoned cemeteries is my profession, but I'm starting to believe that my true calling is deciphering the riddles of the dead. Legend has it that Kroll Cemetery is a puzzle no one has ever been able to solve. For over half a century, the answer has remained hidden within the strange headstone inscriptions and intricate engravings. Because uncovering the mystery of that tiny, remote graveyard may come at a terrible price.
Years after their mass death, Ezra Kroll's disciples lie unquiet, their tormented souls trapped within the walls of Kroll Cemetery, waiting to be released by someone strong and clever enough to solve the puzzle. For whatever reason, I'm being summoned to that graveyard by both the living and the dead. Every lead I follow, every clue I unravel brings me closer to an unlikely killer and to a destiny that will threaten my sanity and a future with my love, John Devlin.
 
 To say I was elated to find this on NetGalley is an understatement. And when I got the email of approval to read this title in exchange for an honest review, I damn near jumped out of my skin with excitement. 
     A little over a year ago, a good friend of mine introduced me to The Graveyard Queen series. I’m so happy she did, as I’ve really enjoyed these novels. And every single book in this series has been a great read . . . but . . . holy-freaking-moley, this one wasn't only great, but freaking awesome.

The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone

Literary Fiction (Adult)

 

The odds of Dahlia successfully navigating adulthood are 3,720 to 1. But never tell her the odds.
Meet Dahlia Moss, the reigning queen of unfortunate decision-making in the St. Louis area. Unemployed broke, and on her last bowl of ramen, she's not living her best life. But that's all about to change.
Before Dahlia can make her life any messier on her own she's offered a job. A job that she's woefully under-qualified for. A job that will lead her to a murder, an MMORPG, and possibly a fella (or two?).
Turns out unfortunate decisions abound, and she's just the girl to deal with them.
