1. Forever His by Shelly Thacker. Historical romance. I got this one for free for my Kindle app on my phone and I was sick and this was sheer brain candy. The sexy scenes were fun but that's about it. The whole book was full of male and female stereotypes, which is why I don't usually read historical romances.
2. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman. I saw the movie adaptation way back when. So I finally got around to reading the book. The movie was adapted for a wider audience, for those who don't normally read magical realism. They took out those elements that I kind of find endearing and quirky in magical realism books. But the story was a bit uneven and it wasn't a favorite.
4. You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney. Fun and quick book about cognitive biases, heuristics, and fallacies that make us all not quite so smart. Very enlightening.
5. Night Film by Marisha Pessl. I didn't quite like how it ended
6. Stepford Wives by Ira Levin. A sci-fi and somewhat dystopic classic that's been on my list for quite some time. It was well-done. I was highly disturbed. And those are the kinds that make us think. It's one that should be read by everyone.
8. The Pyschopath Test by Jon Ronson. I love this author. He's funny and real and quirky and it made the story human. He focuses on psychopaths this time around and the history of how the psychopath test was formulated. He pokes wholes, makes us paranoid, and makes us realize we all have a little bit of the psychopath within. Good stuff.
