Virgil Wounded Horse is the vigilante, the hired thug, of his Lakota reservation. He is often hired to dish out his special brand of punishment when the justice system fails the people. When heroin makes it way onto his reservation and into this hands of his teenage nephew, Nathan, the case finally hits home for Virgil.
or those of us ready to escape 2020, Magic Lessons will certainly take you away. (Do you really want to be transported to 1680, though? The ultimate question.)
I read this novel and kept stopping, refreshing CNN, and wondering how far off we actually are. Severance is a hard read, because it's eerily familiar to what's going on with COVID-19. (You know, minus the part where it's the total end of the world and only a literal handful of people survive.)
Cassidy Holmes is a near overnight celebrity thanks to the rapid success of her girl group, Gloss. Together, the four young Glossies are at the top of the early 2000s pop scene until suddenly... it implodes.
Chosen Ones. A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Midnight Sun. Did quarantine inspire these big hit authors to finally finish some projects? All signs point to yes.
If you're a millennial woman, you're familiar with Veronica Roth. Maybe you're thinking, "Who?" Let's be real with each other, we've all read Divergent, right? (And seen the films, where Shailene Woodley became very real hair goals for me.)
Riley Sager's Home Before Dark has been on my "literally cannot wait to get my hands on this" list since I learned he was coming out with a novel this summer.
