Missed: Rafael and Lisa (Cliffside Bay Book 6) by Tess Thompson
Missed: Rafael and Lisa (Cliffside Bay #6) - Tess Thompson

 

 

Welcome to Cliffside Bay. It can either break your heart, uplift your soul or help you find your way home. If your lucky, it can help you do all three. Thompson is back with more heartache and drama in the tiny town were hearts do to heal. Missed is the beginning of a second chance for two broken hearts that have lost their way. Lisa and Rafael find reason in the painful and support in each others arms. I always walk into a Tess Thompson novel, knowing I'll leave a piece of my heart behind when it's over.

Recent acquisitions!
Poirot and Me - David Suchet,Geoffrey Wansell
An Autobiography - Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks - John Curran
Agatha Christie - Laura Thompson
A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie - Kathryn Harkup

Both the Suchet book and the Laura Thompson biography were only .99. I'm pretty sure that my fellow Agathytes who have read Thompson's biography were underwhelmed - remind me below.

 

I also decided that if was going to embark on a project of understanding Christie better, it made sense to go straight to the author's own words about herself and her life, so her autobiography is the thing that I plan to concentrate on first.And the Curran book was really just bought on a whim because the premise is intriguing, especially now that I don't have to worry about any of the solutions being accidentally spoiled.

 

Which takes me back to A is for Arsenic, actually. I own it, but was reluctant to read it because I didn't want to spoil any of the unread books.

The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker
The Dreamers - Karen Thompson Walker

A special thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group—Random House for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A college freshman stumbles back to her dorm room and falls asleep. She sleeps all morning and into the next evening. Her roommate, Mei, tries to wake her without success; paramedics can't rouse her, nor the doctors at the hospital. Then another girl falls asleep, and then another.

The college is put on lockdown quarantining the students. Panic sets in as the once sleepy town descends into chaos. Those that are infected are experiencing a higher-than-normal level of brain activity and are intensely dreaming, but what are they dreaming about?

Thompson Walker uses third person perspective and divides the book into small, digestible chapters. This is not particularly effective, in fact there is a disconnect—it is as if the narrator is completely detached. Because of this format, the characters are not fully developed and I didn't feel an affinity towards any of them—I wanted to, especially Mei.

Written in luminous, hypnotic prose, The Dreamers is a beautiful, sweeping novel yet I was left feeling frustrated because nothing actually happens. That, coupled with the fact that there are several loose ends, left me thinking about this book long after I finished it. I'm rather perplexed to be honest, and not in a good thought-provoking way, but questioning what I just actually read.
