    This is a very good urban fantasy, featuring battles between the living and the dead. I enjoyed the characters and their interactions, especially between Sorcha and Merrick. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Spectyr.

    The Book of Dave: A Novel
    Will Self
    ★★★☆☆

    This was a complex and gripping book about family, madness, love and religion, with a new vocabulary to get used to from the beginning. At first, I wasn't sure I liked the book, but the story soon caught my interest and I wanted to learn more about Dave and the future inhabitants of Ham.

    Albert Camus
    ★★★☆☆

    I liked this book set in 1940s Algeria. Mersault's isolation and indifference to others and his own fate was creepy and thought-provoking.

    Sheri S. Tepper
    ★★★☆☆

    I liked this book about identities and working with others to make a difference. While at times the plot was confusing to me, at the end, it all came together nicely. I especially liked the part when the "Margarets" met each other and learned where they each came from.

    I enjoyed this biography of Saul Bellow. Greg Bellow brings the reader behind the scenes, showing how Saul's life events portrayed in characters like Henderson, Herzog, etc. He also presents a candid look at relationships, especially regarding how they evolve over the years.

    Avoiding Prison and Other Noble Vacation Goals: Adventures in Love and Danger
    Wendy Dale
    ★★★☆☆

    An amusing and sometimes poignant book about finding "home" in places near and far. I liked Dale's honesty as she recounted her adventures in the Middle East, the Caribbean and Latin America.
