Miracles and Conundrums of the Secondary Planets - Gilbert Allen;Terry Dubow;Valerie Fioravanti;M.S. Allen;Jacob M. Appel;Kathleen Toomey Jabs;Tom Juvik;Amina Gautier;Nick Healy

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

This is the fourth short story collection I have read from this author and once again I loved it. Appel’s stories are always so unique and clever and have a lot of heart. Even if you don’t typically like short stories, I’m sure you will love his.

Camelot at Dawn: Jacqueline and John Kennedy in Georgetown, May 1954 - Institute Peabody Institute, Orlando Suero, Anne Garside

I loved this! This book is truly a treasure. It offers that rare glimpse into Jack and Jackie’s pre-Camelot days. The photos themselves were stunning and I learned a lot of little details about them and their early life together.

The Philosophy Book (Big Ideas Simply Explained) - Clive Hill, Will Buckingham, Peter J. King, Marcus Weeks, John Marenbon, Douglas Burnham

 

This book gives a great overview of philosophy. I was a philosophy major in college and this book covers many of the ideas I learned at school. However, my only grievance is that it leaves some ideas out like Kantian ethics. But other than that I highly recommend this to people who like philosophy or want to learn more about it.

What She Saw: A Novel - Gerard Stembridge

I received this book for free through Goodreads' First Reads.

 

This book gets bad reviews but I liked it a lot. Some people say that the characters are not likable but honestly I've read way worse. Lana was not that bad and I understood why she acted the way she did.

 

I also loved the setting and thought it was utilized well. It makes me want to go to Paris.

 

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a thriller set in a foreign country.

Miles Morales: Spider-Man (A Marvel YA Novel) - Jason Reynolds, Kadir Nelson

I loved this! Even though it was about a superhero it felt very real. Miles’s situation is one that many people are in and I feel like a lot of people could relate to his story. I also liked how this book touches upon the prison system and the effects it has. Overall, this book is a perfect blend of Spidey fun and real world issues.

A Haven on Orchard Lane - Lawana Blackwell

I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Member Giveaways.

 

I typically don’t read Christian fiction but I still enjoyed this book. It was a fairly simple story but the setting made up for it. I’m a sucker for cute little English villages.
