- Latest Review: "Like Raindrops on Water" by Jann DiPaolo
I began reading this book a while back, but it just started out excruciatingly slow for me, so I stopped. After reading through these reviews, I'm tempted to give this book another shot.

Looooong overdue. Finally managed to snag it at the library. It was a slow start, but it also picked up at the back. I can't say that I love "The Miniaturist", but I did enjoy reading it. However, I think I got lost somewhere, and by the end, I didn't understand the point of the book. The ending didn't help either. It just seemed so rushed.

- Latest Review: "The Piketty Problem" by Garth Hallberg
I found this book fascinating and it made me want to read to the end, but when I was finished I felt slightly unsatisfied. The plot wasn't as tight as I would have liked, but Burton's writing style made up for it. I have her newest book, The Muse waiting on my shelf. Both have stunning covers, too!
