The Handmaid’s Tale #BookReview

Why this book? I picked up this book since I found out Hulu’s doing a series from it. At the time it seemed interesting. After reading it, not so much. I’m probably not going to watch the series. I read that the movie, which came out in the 90’s is […]

Clay Tongue #BookReview

This was an amazing short story about a little girl who is brave enough to enter the woods in search of a wish to help her beloved Grandpa. The story is long enough to get the back story and is well-written. You can understand what Katie, our protagonist, is going […]

The Iron Trial #BookReview

My Review I decided to read this one, even though it is a children’s book, because my son is reading it and I want to know what he’s reading. Truthfully, writing this off as “just a children’s book” would be an injustice. It does not have romance nor profanity. I […]

The Paris Architect #BookReview

My Review I think, by now, my readers should know that I’m interested in World War II stories; even if not “based on true events”. So when I came across this one I had to read it. The thing with this one is that I actually enjoyed the plot, the […]

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry #BookReview

My Review I picked this one out because it had so many good recommendations on Amazon and this is about the owner of a bookstore. The first reason would normally deter me from actually purchasing the book but the fact that it was about a bookstore owner made me consider […]

The Iron King #BookReview

My Review I really enjoyed this book. It’s a historical fiction novel set in the time of Phillip the Fair of France. There’s back stabbing, plotting and scheming, betrayal and more. All of what you expect from a story of about the treachery of wanting power. The beginning of the […]

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 […]

Dark Matter #BookReview

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 […]

Serpents in the City #BookReview

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 […]
