2012 book 152

Lydia Netzer's Shine Shine Shine
I honestly wanted to read this book because of its beautiful cover, and didn't know a thing about it. It turned out to be a very unusual--but also very readable--book about the love story between a completely bald woman with an atypical upbringing and a genius guy, who, while she's pregnant with their second child, is on a mission to colonize the moon with robots. Great characters and I liked the writing a lot too. Fans of literary fiction should be into it, and I'd also suggest it for anyone who likes a little bit of genre-bending and is willing to read something a little bit weird (I mean that in a good way). A-/B+.

An e-galley was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in July.
