Hello, my fellow Spirals!

Home (Marilynne Robinson)
A story about a father, daughter and a son who has returned home after a really long time. I am guessing it involves the son reconnecting with his family during his stay.
I bought this book from a second hand bookshop on a total whim. All I knew back then was that the overall Goodreads rating for this book is 4+ which was good enough for me.
So far, I am not a huge fan of this book. It is very hard for me to stick to and connect with. While the vocabulary is rich, it also means that it takes a lot of effort to stay focused and understand, neither of which I can do presently. Hopefully it picks up soon.
The House in the Cerulean Sean (TJ Klune)
Oh my, what a truly wholesome book. I totally got what I was looking for when I picked this up. In my opinion this book was targeted towards a younger demographic but it ended up appealing to all age groups. Must pick for everyone.
The plot revolves around Linus, a caseworker, who investigates and reports back on the working of an orphanage for all magical being kids.
The Passengers (John Marrs)
Another solid read. I found this book via BooksUnbound podcast and the comparison with Black Mirror immediately piqued my interest. It was a ride (haha notice the pun please) for sure. Really enjoyed it.
Plot: Eight people get into separate driverless cars only to be told that they’re destination has be re-programmed and will die within the next two and a half hours.
The Only Good Indians (Stephen Graham Jones)
My hold on Libby has finally come through after a long time and I am in some mood for Horror/Thriller so this ticks all those boxes.
I am unaware of the plot so check it out here.
