I Know Why the Caged Birds Sing #BookReview

My Review I still don’t know why the caged birds sing but I really loved this book. At first, I had some apprehension about reading an autobiography or biography in general. Why would I want to read the mundane events of someone else’s life? But it was surprisingly good. Some of the things that made […]

On Reaching 200 Posts

My last post, a book review of Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, marked The Review Court’s 200th post. Of those, 178 are mine. The others are book reviews from my mom, who co-blogged with me a while back. It’s been a long and fun journey. As you may know, I started the blog back in […]

My Review I chose this book because it has so many good reviews on Goodreads [23K+ ratings and 4K+ reviews]. I just needed to know what all the fuss was about. I wasn’t disappointed. This is the first Blake Crouch novel I’ve read but I did watch Wayward Pines, if you recall, and loved it. […]

My Review: I’ve read the first two novels in this series and loved them. This one is no different. I really enjoy reading the Mac Ambrose stories because, of course, you have a strong female protagonist, she’s a spy, she’s smart, she’s brave, and she’s cares about the well-being of the others. She has values, […]

My Review: I enjoyed The Immortal Circus series, which was the first series I read by A.R. Kahler. It had a little bit of everything, that’s what I like in a book. The Pale Queen Series is a bit different. There are some similarities in terms of characters and some of the setting. But that’s where […]

I reached my review goal for 2016 #Musings

This year I had originally been optimistic. I mean, I’d be home for 3 months on maternity leave. I remember maternity leave with my son. He slept well; he was a chill baby. My daughter, not so much. She’s now 9 months and we’ve finally settled into a night time routine. She goes to bed […]

The Review I read part one of this short story series but didn’t really enjoy it. I guess over time I had forgotten how annoying the main character is because when the author asked if I’d like to read book two, I agreed. I was tempted to give up because the story is a bit slow […]

An Accidental New Look

An Accidental New Look

Last week, my WordPress theme had an update. I noticed that the version number jumped from 1 point something to 2 and I wondered what all the changes where. I went into the theme options and noticed a new social menu. [You notice that mine is not a widget anymore but on the main menu]. […]

The Retribution of Mara Dyer #BookReview

Spoilers are abundant. You have been warned – although I try my best to keep them hidden. Review So… I’m not as happy as I was after I finished reading books 1 and 2. I’m pretty sad about that. I have too many issues with the story that I just couldn’t give it a 5 star rating, although […]
