All Things Cease to Appear by Elizabeth Brundage & Midnight Sun by Jo Nesbo I love murder mysteries, even when they aren't super intense psychological thrillers with serial killers.

You leave the book knowing that you were…

This time I read: Defending Jacob by William Landay &  Fin & Lady by Cathleen Schine I got this book from my mom after she had read it. It's about a boy who is accused of murdering a classmate and it is told from the father's point of view. I liked and disliked this way of telling the story, mainly because of the bias. It made it interesting to read…
