The Plotters by Un-Su Kim
This was a great slow-burn Korean crime fiction. It’s a character study with some interesting action. I really loved this one and pan to buy it one day. I’m definitely interested in more by this author.
The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
This is the sequel and second book in the Truly Devious trilogy. I think I enjoyed this as much as the first book. I was bored by the romantic subplot, but I’m pretty much always bored with them, so. Still, I’m gonna read the last book when it comes out.
Elevate by Joseph Deitch
An interesting self-help type book that’s mostly about how one can elevate their life and relationships and businesses. Although it was definitely very obviously written by a rich white man, there were some good points about opening yourself to yourself.
Hong Kong Noir by Various Authors
This was an outstanding collection of short stories set in Hong Kong. Not only were they all very entertaining (and sometimes spooky), but they were also very informative. I definitely recommend this one to anyone who likes short stories, learning about different cultures, or ghosts.
The Hole by Hye-Young Pyun
This is a kind of wild ride. There’s not much that happens, yet so much happens! I definitely recommend this if you like psychological thrillers that are slow-burns and character driven.
