La viajera del tiempo

Review
Finalist in the 2016 Indie Authors Contest.
Well written and intriguing. The story is told by the two main characters in their own version.
I enjoyed reading it but the end was a bit cheesy.

Reading Beowulf:an introduction to the poem, its background, and its style

Ogilvy, J. D. A.
Review

This information is strongly tied to the Sutton Hoo tutorial. This is more serious history fans. For dense material

Me Before You
Author
Jojo Moyes
Review
I like to read Moyes' books at the beach or the pool. They're quick and fun, but feel more substantial than smutty romance novels. I thought the plot moved at a successful pace in this novel, and the characters were profoundly real.

Modern Romance
Author
Aziz Ansari
Review
As a millennial, I couldn't wait to read this book. It was recommended to me by a friend and did not disappoint. I didn't expect the book to have so much science behind it, but its clear Ansari worked with different experts and scientists on this book. Fans of his comedy will not be disappointed, neither will those perplexed by the strangeness that is modern dating. Anyone single--or trying to understand singles--in the time of tinder should check it out.

Death at La Fenice
Author
Donna Leon
Review
I had heard that Donna Leon had a good series of mystery books that take place in Venice. I had recently been in Venice and I thought it would be a nice way to revisit one of my favorite places. The book was OK for a summer read,but I prefer something a little more meaty.

Review
Such a twist ending!! Loved it. Kept me guessing the whole time. Love that no character is purely good or purely evil.
