Illuminae By Amie Kaufman And Jay Kristoff

A Plague Of Zombies By Diana Gabaldon

A Plague Of Zombies By Diana Gabaldon

This short story was very disjointed. The mystery and it’s resolution were lack luster and underwhelming like the whole plot was forced together under the premise of zombies to fit some unidentified, unknown unifying topic

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander holds a dear spot in my heart and on my bookshelf. And while, Voyager, book 3 in the series, is still my absolute favorite, this is the book that started it all. It is a big book, but it is worth every minute of your first read or your fifth read. For me, it’s like coming home again each time I pick it up again.
Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet By H.P. Wood

Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet By H.P. Wood

Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet is a character study. It is a different kind of historical fiction novel from that standpoint The characters drive the story. Be prepared to be delight to go on this journey of self-discovery. It's an adventure you won’t soon forget and one that you won't mind going on again.
Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister

Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallister

Greer Macallister's takes a few scant details and introduces a new historical heroine to admire. Her compelling story gives strength and encouragement in the darkest known part of American history to date.
The Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman

The Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman

There’s a little bit of everything in The Invisible Library—mystery, magic, fae, vampires, werewolves, books and of course, DRAGONS. I can’t seem to resist decent books about libraries, fellow bookworms and dragons.
The Great Library Series by Rachel Caine

The Great Library Series by Rachel Caine

The Great Library Series is an excellent adventure that asks some deep questions about how the world does and should share knowledge.
Written In My Heart’s Own Blood By Diana Gabaldon

Written In My Heart’s Own Blood By Diana Gabaldon

With a plot that goes no where, recycled timelines (and dialogue) and an overwhelming amount of characters to follow, I was not satisfied with how this book was put together or how it all ended.
The Butterman Travel Series By P.K. Hrezo

The Butterman Travel Series By P.K. Hrezo

If you are looking for a lighter time travel novel with a bit of a steamy side and well-round, good-head-on-her-shoulders heroine, definitely check out the Butterman Time Travel series.
The Nightingale By Kristin Hannah

The Nightingale By Kristin Hannah

With so many stories out there told about the Jewish experience during WWII, it was refreshing to immerse myself in another key aspect of the war that lead to the successful Allied victory.

The Readers Of Broken Wheel Recommend By Katarina Bivald

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend will appeal to a wide range of readers — bookworms and romances readers alike.
The Code Name Verity series By Elizabeth Wein

The Code Name Verity series By Elizabeth Wein

The Code Name Verity series is seared on my soul and my heart. Both books are a grand adventure story with heart and chutzpah. I look forward to seeing Maddie, Queenie and Rose again soon no matter how much their stories break by heart.

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald is a delightful read. I was reminded of many of the romantic comedy movies from my college year’s as I strolled through the streets of Broken Wheel with the main character, Sara.

Sara was my favorite part of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend. She reminded me of myself. A young woman waiting for life to sweep her off her feet, taking comfort in her books and trying desperately to overcome her introvert ways to connect with others.

People were strange like that. They could be completely uninterested in you, but the moment you picked up a book, you were the one being rude.Katarina Bivald, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

Sara was also a bookworm so the book is swimming with quotes about reading and books. I wished that the eARC was not a PDF so I could have more easily highlighted my favorites and referenced them later.

Sara creates a bit of a revolution in the small town of Broken Wheel. The fallout of her arrival is somewhat predictable, but enjoyable. There’s an easy way with Bivald’s writing that allows you to be carried along with the story—smiling, laughing and frowning—along with the characters. There’s a little bit of everyone in the characters that populate Broken Wheel. And taking a break from my heavier reads is welcome adventure a couple times a year.

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend will appeal to a wide range of readers. This could qualify as a summer beach read. Bookworms will appreciate Amy’s and Sara’s love of books and their reverence for the written word. Lovers of romance will enjoy Sara’s journey and Caroline’s adventures. I suspect most readers will want to find Broken Wheel and spend a few hours in Amy’s Bookstore talking with Sara, Tom and George. I know that I do.

Our critics and educators have got a lot to answer for when they manage to make young boys see stories about rebellion and adventure and ballsiness as a chore. Do you understand what I mean? the real crime of these lists isn’t that they leave deserving books off them, but that they make people see fantastic literary adventures as obligations.Katarina Bivald, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend
