AI is a Scary Future
Klara and the Sun was a struggle for me. It moved slowly and I am just freaked out by AI and the fear it may take over the world. The human characters were basically unlikable, revealing the weaknesses of humanity. Maybe the future for the earth to survive with any living creatures (other than humans) is AI.
Linda S. (Tucker, GA)

How well can a psychic see into your past if she can't see her own?
If you are in the mood for a fun, light read that engages from the first page, why not give "Some of It Was Real" by Nan Fischer a try? When Sylvie, a young up-and-coming psychic who nevertheless doubts her gifts, collides with Thomas, a cynical newspaper reporter out to discredit her, they begin a journey that will illuminate the past and the secrets that lurk there. As they each confront their dark places they discover long buried secrets and explore the meaning of love, especially familial love, along with other topics like religion thrown in for good measure. There are a couple of bodice ripping instances so you may want to skip the steamy scenes if that is not your thing. Through it all Sylvie attempts to prove to Thomas - and to herself - that her psychic abilities are real. The real question, however, is can she convince you, her reader?
