(Book) The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

76 I am not a science fiction reader, as a rule. I do like time travel stories though – I enjoyed Replay, for instance. I first read The Time Traveler’s Wife a few years ago when a bookclub I was in wanted to read it. I read it again on my own several months later […]

(Book) Waiting For Spring by RJ Keller

64 This is a hard book for me to review. The plot, the story, the execution of this books is phenomenal. My problem was the heavy use of the F-word, not only in the sex-scenes, but also just in the everyday language. I should say that I drop the F-bomb myself – and on a […]

(Book) Mommywood by Tori Spelling

59 I have to admit that I purchased Tori’s first book because my mother wanted me to read it. I was so impressed with it that I bought this one after. I’m still impressed with Tori. Oh, she’s not perfect and she appears to be honest about that. She loves her kids and her husband. […]

The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood

20 This is not the kind of book I would usually enjoy. It sounds syrupy (and it kind of is) and it had deep meaning (and it does). But I loved this book. The writing is… well… it’s lyrical. I read this one quickly, couldn’t put it down. This is actually the first book by […]

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

Oh wow. I went into this book half-dreading it. I mean, can he even come close to The Kite Runner? That was such a great book, one of my favorites. Well, Mr. Hosseini, it is your fault that it’s almost 9am here and I’m tired. Why? I was up until 5am turning pages, I could […]

(AudioBook) Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt

Frank McCourt is easily my favorite of all the memoir writers. I read the book a while back, but saw this and saw he reads it in his own voice and I knew I’d have to listen. He is mesmerizing. His story in his own words. I took my sweet time listening to this in […]
