Note: Reviews have been edited for length and clarity.
Jill says: “Ms. Chan provides a provocative narrative on the nature of modern-day parenting and its unrealistic and unattainable level of perfection. Part dystopian tragedy, part nightmare, The School for Good Mothers will disturb you to the core.”
Judy says: “A searing love story set amid the troubles in Northern Ireland. She shows the divisions and ties between family, friends, and communities in a devastating novel.”
April says: ”The Winners by Fredrik Backman was the best by far (in my opinion)!”
Sheri says: “I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down and found myself actually crying at the end.”
Nilton says: “To date I have read 167 books. I can name these terrific books released this year: The Recruit by Alan Drew and Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt.”
Sarah says: “Raw, real, passionate — this is Kennedy Ryan at the top of her game.”
Amy says: “Such a well-written, twisty read that made me talk out loud at the pages!”
Ziggy says: “The follow-up to his astounding Wanderers did not disappoint. This multilayered tale — at times horrifying, others hopeful — of an all-too-real-feeling apocalyptic future caused by AI and man out of control was simply astounding! It is rare to care for so many characters spread across so many scenarios like I did throughout this story!”
Holly says: “Beautiful fantasy, great characters. I would definitely reread it!”
Eileen says: “Could not put this one down.”
