Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix

She could decide how she was going to be. She had a choice. Life could be an endless series of joyless chores, or she could get totally pumped and make it fun. There were bad things, and there were good things, but she got to choose which things to focus on. Her mom focused only…

Book Review: What The Wind Knows by Amy Harmon

I know the novelty will wear off, and life will intrude before long. But it is not the newness of her, the newness of us, that has captured me. It is the opposite. It is as if we always were and always will be, as though our love and our lives sprang from the same…

Bird Box freaked me out. I’m going around turning all the lights on and looking around, but then remembering not to look and closing my eyes.…

Book Rating 2/5 Book Review Oh, boy. It’s always unpleasant for me to review books I don’t like, because I feel guilty! But, wow, this book just did not work for me. My husband got it, along with others, for me as a graduation present (you’re reading words written by someone who has an English Masters…
