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…

Book Review: Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

It was pointless anyway–all the blah-blah-blabbing and, still, no one understood each other. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review What a roller coaster of emotions for me… This book was so “real life” and practical. It didn’t feel like fiction; it felt like real life. It had so many doses of reality.

Book Review: You’ll Never Know, Dear by Hallie Ephron

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review The cover of this book and description led me to believe this would be a really scary, suspenseful read. While that wasn’t entirely the case, I did enjoy this read! I would classify You’ll Never Know, Dear as a mystery, almost a cozy one but not quite. I wouldn’t say…

Book Review: The Ocean at The End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

Adults follow paths. Children explore. Adults are content to walk the same way, hundreds of times, or thousands; perhaps it never occurs to adults to step off the paths, to creep beneath rhododendrons, to find the spaces between fences. Book Rating 4.5/5 Book Review Memories are a funny thing. They can be erased. They can…

Book Review: House of Suns by Alastair Reynolds

You are a bookworm who has tunneled through the pages of history. Is that not so? Book Rating 4.5/5 Book Review House of Suns is classified as a “space opera”. While I have definitely been on a science fiction kick, this one was completely different than any of my recent reads. Reynolds builds a completely…
