Though very different in form and tone, Stephen King’s “Doctor Sleep” was a welcome follow-up to “The Shining”. Worth reading if for no other reason to find out just what happened to those characters decades later. -Mike

This book reads like an episode of "Criminal Minds" and "Lie to Me" - a kidnapping has happened and the FBI are called in to solve the case. Told through glimpses of the kidnapper and victim, but mostly through the voice of the agents - this book is predictable and isn't great. quick read but nothing special.
Though she is from a family of clairvoyants, Blue Sargent's only gift seems to be that she makes other people's talents stronger, and when she meets Gansey, one of the Raven Boys from the expensive Aglionby Academy, she discovers that he has talents of his own--and that together their talents are a dangerous mix.

(#42) The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - Alan Bradley ★★★☆☆ // A mystery with an 11-year-old chemist/amateur detective named Flavia de Luce as its main character. The story has a perfect setup - precocious girl detective, 1950s England, fabulous country estate, and a mysterious death in the garden. But the story lost a lot of momentum in the middle, and by the end I was fed up with some pretty farcical coincidences. A good summer read, but don't expect too much.

The Passage by Justin Cronin... Overall, this was a good book and I do recommend it. It is long and it took me forever to get through it. There are parts of it that are total page turners, and parts that I had to force myself to read.... Haven't finished The Twelve yet because I'm finding it reads the same way...
The Passage by Justin Cronin, it is so interesting, and it is part of a trilogy. The story is post apocalyptic, science fiction, and somewhat supernatural, something I normally don't like, but I am enjoying this book. I recommend it, you won't be able to put it down!
such a great book!
