20 Books of Summer 2018: Sign Up

It’s time for the 20 Books of Summer 2018 reading challenge! 😀

Review: Girl with a Pearl Earring

Chevalier’s classic is technically “good,” but it’s flat. Griet’s character might be better explored by Vermeer’s famous painting than by this book.

Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Why wasn’t this a short story? I usually enjoy Gaiman’s light, magical tone. Here, though, it feels phoned in and shallow.

Review: The Shining

a.k.a. I would like to officially retract every bad or unflattering thing I have ever said about Stephen King’s writing.

Review: Artemis

Artemis is such an awful second act that it has me second-guessing the fun time I had with The Martian. Yikes!
