Friday Five–Throwback Reviews

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 6.56.44 AM

Here are 5 past reviews from our blog we think deserve a little more attention:

1. Daryl Gregory’s Afterparty. Gregory just nails what it is like to live in a college town in this first chapter of this phenomenal book. His prequel to We are All Completely Fine, a book titled Harrison Squared, comes out soon! We will surely review it here.

2.Jeffrey Deaver’s The Skin Collector. Here’s a review of a book that’s help you get your CSI fix.  Forensics, abduction, poison tattoos…everything you can ask for in a quick read. Reviewed by Robert, our 2016 Conference co-chair

3.Five Divergent-Inspired Pastimes.  I love this post by Allison, our Executive director, not just because it feels like it would be a cool assignment for students, but because I love all the suggested activities.

4.Teju Cole’s Open City. This review “delve[s] into philosophy, art, death, identity, politics, and life”–lots to ponder for a winter weekend. Cole should get more literary attention–starting with you!

5. Kiera Cass The Selection. Jennie, our board president reviews the first of a trilogy that she describes as “fictional/YA version of The Bachelor.” Some light reading for dark days.
