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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Book Trial: The Good Girl

My Thoughts Why did I do this to myself? Sometimes I wonder if I may secretly be a masochist. I chose this book because it had so many good reviews [albeit some bad ones as well]. I’ve learnt that having a lot of good reviews isn’t always an indication that […]

Book Trial: The Light Between Oceans

The Review I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn’t. I suppose there was an important lesson learned in the end but really it was just a depressing and heart-breaking story. Tom is a broken man who doesn’t know how to put down his foot when it […]

Book Trial: The Nightingale

The Review I loved this story. I like that they give us two completely different characters. Although these two sisters both lost their parents (one to death and one left shell-shocked from World War I), they have both dealt with it in their own ways. Vianne finds herself a husband and […]
