The Good Girl * Fiona Neill Book Review

After a good book like Reconstructing Amelia  I was slightly disappointed by Fiona Neill’s take on teen drama in the Internet era and the dangers of posting compromising material about oneself online. While Amelia’s story was more focused on the aftermath of bullying, Romy’s story is focused on the how and why’s and the familyContinue reading “The Good Girl * Fiona Neill Book Review”

‘Wisp of a Thing’ Alex Bledsoe’s second book on the Tufas

After reading the first novel in the Tufa series, Hum and Shiver, I wanted to know what would happen with the main protagonist – the Bronwinator – and the dark – haired people in the Appalachian Cloud County. This is a story about life in a small village and about the two main families ofContinue reading “‘Wisp of a Thing’ Alex Bledsoe’s second book on the Tufas”

Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children

I have just finished reading this beautiful story from new American writer Ransom Riggs. I was even more excited to find out that Tim Burton is going to make a movie out of it which will be released in 2016. This is one unforgettable novel, peppered with old vintage photographs of “peculiar” children. Ones that areContinue reading “Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children”

Kid Rocha – Beyond Shame Book Review

I know you should never judge a book by its cover, but the words “Bestselling author” made me buy the book from an author I have never read before. Unfortunately, I made a horrible, horrible mistake that I have learned to regret since a month ago, when I first started reading the book. I hadContinue reading “Kid Rocha – Beyond Shame Book Review”

Fifty Shades Freed * EL James

When we last left our romantic icons, Ana Steele and Christian Grey, they were newly engaged and facing (a) Ana’s ex-boss, Jack Hyde, whom Christian fired in a fit of jealous pique when Jack made a pass at Ana and (b) Christian’s “Mrs. Robinson,” the woman who initiated him into his life of BDSM. CanContinue reading “Fifty Shades Freed * EL James”

50 Shades Darker * EL James

The 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy continues with 50 Shades Darker. The ‘Cinderella story on steroids’ continues with a happy ending/beginning. If you read the first book you know that Ana refers to Christian Grey as 50 Shades hence the book title. Christian has many moods and ‘personalities’ that lead Ana to this name for him.

From the corner of his eye (Dean Koontz)

Horrormeister Koontz looks heavenward for inspiration in his newest suspense thriller, From the Corner of His Eye, which is chock-full of signs, portents, angels and one somewhat second-rate devil, a murky and under characterized guy named Junior Cain who throws his beloved wife off a fire tower on an Oregon mountain and spends the rest of the novelContinue reading “From the corner of his eye (Dean Koontz)”
