Golden State by Ben H. Winters The world has changed and now the biggest crime is lying. Laszlo Ratesic works for the Speculative Service which is in charge of investigating lies. The people in charge manipulate what is actually “truth”, so the only ones that can fight back are the ones with the Speculative Service.
Maid by Stephanie Land This book is about the author's journey to achieve her dream. She was a maid to the upper middle class and learned that they had their own problems too, which gave Stephanie hope for her future. She writes about being on WIC, government housing and the realities of the working poor.
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides Alicia ends up shooting her husband Gabriel five times in the face. Afterward, Alicia refuses to speak. Theo Faber is the therapist assigned to Alicia and he is determined to get her to talk.
Golden Child by Claire Adam The story is about two 13 year old twins. One is considered a genius (Paul) and the pride of the family. The other is considered odd (Clyde) and ends up disappearing. Once Clyde's dad learns the truth, he finds out heartbreaking news.
The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo This book is a bit different from the rest. It has to do with a missing finger and the connection to a dressmaker, houseboy and a man-eating tiger.
Final Thought: This month's books were a hit. I can't wait to read “Maid” and “The Silent Patient”. If you want to subscribe, use code FRESHSTART to get your first book for just $5.
