Masterminds and Wingmen was written by the same gal who wrote Queen Bees and Wanna Bees, and is a similar book. It gives clueless parents (me) insight into modern boy culture (HotDog). I don't know that it's as helpful as Queen Bees, but then I never had girls so maybe that wasn't as helpful/insightful as it seemed to me at the time I read it.
I liked what Between the World and Me had to say, but the lack of chapters made it a bit of a run-on sentence Except for not, because it has sentences and paragraphs, and flowed well. I just like an easy spot to close a book for a while.
The Raven Boys is the first in a series, and I was please to rediscover than I like Stiefvater.
Octavia Bulter - how did I miss her work all these years? Luckily book group fixed that, so now I can go find her other stuff.
Feyland was one of those free Kindle books, which can be hit or miss. This one was mostly a hit. Nothing particularly literary, but a good read, and hey! That's what I was looking for.
Buried Destiny is the first in a series by a new author. It's a paranormal gay romance, I enjoyed it, and gay romance isn't my usual thing. (Full disclosure, I've known the author since we both had nursing babes, so I might be a bit biased. Except I'm not, if you like gay paranormal romance, this is a good one.)
