This was our latest American History Club book. I was looking for a book about the space race between the U.S. and Russia, and it was harder to find than I thought. Even though this was a bit longer than I typically choose for American History Club, the topic seemed to fit the bill.

This is a review from a previous year. I picked up the book because I was looking for a suspense book for the library’s summer reading program. Miss Adventure picked this author off the shelf. The liner notes mentioned what a masterful suspense writer Hoag was and I recognized her name, so I figured why not.

It’s my last book of 2016, but it finishes my alphabet challenge! I needed an O author to finish my alphabet challenge. This looked interesting and different from what I’ve been reading lately.

I was excited to see that John Scalzi had a new story coming out. I read his blog religiously (it’s one of the few places I enjoy the political writing, even in this horrible election cycle), and I try to get to all his new books. Everything I’ve read so far, I’ve enjoyed. So, when he announced he had a novella coming out that you could listen to for free off Audible, I was in, even if it wasn’t his typical genre. And, if you hurry, you can still get the audiobook for free through November 5th (I think). Just click on the cover to follow a link to the site!
