I like reading books about war dogs, shipwrecks, and lady aviators.

Currently reading

The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son On Life, Love, and Loss
Gloria Vanderbilt, Anderson Cooper
Don't You Cry - Mary Kubica

Mary Kubica's third turn is just as psychologically thrilling and baffling as the first two.


This is the story of a roommate gone missing, and is (as Kubica's other books are) narrated by two different characters. The first is Quinn, missing Esther's roommate in Chicago, struggling to piece together what has happened to her roommate and whether she ever really knew the girl at all. The second is Alex, a recent high school graduate, who has turned down his college scholarship to bus tables and care for his alcoholic father.


I felt the ending and big reveal were way too rushed, but I didn't guess the twist, which earns this book high ratings from me.
