2017

  • We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: 5/5
    • Read it for the sisterhood. Incredible.
  • Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie: 4/5
    • Read the book before seeing the movie! We loved how she put everything together.
  • The Kept Woman by Karen Slaughter: 3/5
    • Katrina picked this one and didn’t realize it was part of a series (whoops!). That said, it was a decent cop thriller.
  • Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly: 4.5/5
    • For fans of The Nightingale, this stunner will make you feel all the feels.
  • Into the Water by Paula Hawkins: 3.5/5
    • We love a good mystery.
  • Heartless by Marissa Meyer: 3.5/5
    • A bittersweet Wonderland origin story about the Queen of Hearts.
  • The Circle by Dave Eggers: 1/5
    • The group was unimpressed by this one – not worthy of the hype.
  • Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick: 3.5/5
    • Entertaining and insightful!

2016

  • The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer: 0.5/5
    • We all agreed that The Chemist was lacklustre and the writing immature. Meyer is proving to be a one-note writer.
  • The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah: 5/5
    • Both heart-wrenching and inspiring, this one is a major tear-jerker! Every single one of us cried.
  • A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: 4.5/5
    • This fantastic retelling of Beauty and the Beast was a fan-fave. We’re excited for the series.
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho: 4/5
    • Beautiful and inspiring.
  • The Clasp by Sloane Crosley: 3/5
    • A mystery and a love triangle – so great!
  • The White Russian by Vanora Bennett: 3/5
    • Intrigue and romance scored high in this one.

2015

  • Enslavement by Winnipeg’s own Melinda Friesen: 3/5
    • We all enjoyed this one!
  • The Secret History by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Donna Tartt: 1/5
    • This one was controversial – many of us had super strong feelings! Very tough to get through and not very enjoyable lol read at your own risk.
  • The Tuesday Club Murders by Agatha Christie: 3/5
    • Christie is truly the queen of mystery – these short stories were so fun.
  • The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg: 3/5
  • Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberley McCreight: 3.5/5
  • The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins: 3/5
    • Some of our alternative theories were better than the actual story haha still a great mystery and will be perfect for the big screen.
