Nothing Much to Say, Here are Ten Novels


Home Place by Carrie La Seur.  Successful woman returns to Montana after sister dies. Woman thinks sister's death may not have been accident.  Woman goes gooey for old boyfriend.

Illusion of Separateness by Simon Van Booy.  Yes, I read his name was Van Booty.  I'm not sure what the plot is but the back cover says it is "gripping."  So are ticks.

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami. This book says nothing about the plot either.  There are just buzzwords: remarkable...haunted...unintended consequences...journey...mend...heartbreak for the ages.

Magician's Land by Lev Grossman.  I don't know anything about this series but I like all the covers.  The book is about magic and secret worlds.

The Reckoning by Rennie Arth.  Murder mystery set in 1947 England. Okay, I'm burning out this morning.

When the World Was Young by Elizabeth Gaffney. Something about post-WWII life of a teen girl.

Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin.  Something about a fortune hunter.

Mean Streak by Sandra Brown.  Something about a mean streak.

Lucky Us by Amy Bloom.  Something about lucky people.

Monday Monday by Elizabeth Crook.  Something about repetition.  Something about repetition.
