When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole

Reviewed by Kate (Library Patron)

It took a while for me to realize why this is a thriller, but wow it is. It reads like a contemporary fiction, psychological thriller, social commentary, and mystery simultaneously.

Cole uses uncomfortable truths in history and modern day to create a really uncomfortable, yet thoroughly enjoyable, story. The more I think about this book, the more I like it, and I think it takes a really good author to create a book that does that!

Caste: The Origin of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson

Reviewed by Kate (Library Staff)

I’m sure you’ve heard of this book by now, but if not, you’re welcome! Wilkerson weaves her personal experience, her research, and international perspectives together in this incredible book. Reading this gave me a better understanding of how Caste permeates through our everyday lives, and what the consequences are.

This is a very important read for anyone on either side of the aisle. It’s very timely, and very well written. I absolutely recommend!

The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey

Reviewed by Kate (Library Staff)

I love a good mystery, but often get tired of reading the same formula reworked for countless books. The Echo Wife was fresh, exciting, and I truly had no idea where the author was taking me most of the time.

This book is perfect for readers who want a woman-centric scifi, that’s a bit too realistic for comfort.
