Although of course you end up becoming yourself: #bookreview

This book has been made into a movie called “The End of the Tour.” If I were you, I would read the book first.David Lipsky was incredibly lucky. He got to have an extended interview with David Foster Wallace. They traveled to the last few stops on Wallace’s book tour for “Infinite Jest. ” WallaceContinue reading “Although of course you end up becoming yourself: #bookreview”

Summer Reading Challenge #3: Howards End

For #9 on the Nerd in the Brain Summer Reading program challenge, I read Howards End by E.M. Forster. The challenge was to read a book published before 1950. Howards End was published in 1910. The world in Howards End is very different than modern times. There’s still the class distinction between rich and poorContinue reading “Summer Reading Challenge #3: Howards End”

This is Your Captain Speaking: Book Review

Last night, I finished reading “This is Your Captain Speaking” by Gavin MacLeod and Mark Dagostino. For those of you who don’t know – which is everyone except my parents and like two people – I am a huge fan of the “The Love Boat.” So when I had the chance to review this book,Continue reading “This is Your Captain Speaking: Book Review”

Remember the Lilies: Book Review

I’m going to do something that I rarely do – write a review of something that I don’t like. It’s not that I hate the book. It’s not that it wasn’t well-written. It really was. The book just missed the mark, as far as character development. Remember the Lilies could have been a really greatContinue reading “Remember the Lilies: Book Review”

Sister Eve, Private Eye: Book Review

It has been awhile since I read a mystery. I used to read all sort of mystery novels. At one point, I was a member of a mystery novel club. It wasn’t so much a club as a monthly subscription to books. I have to be honest. I really enjoyed this book. It reminded meContinue reading “Sister Eve, Private Eye: Book Review”

All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes: Book Review

“All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes” by  Betsy St. Amant is unbelievably cute. The cover is cute. The story is cute. I believe that this book would be perfect as a movie on the Hallmark Channel. Seriously, Hallmark Channel, please make this into a movie. It’s a nice, wholesome story about people that struggle withContinue reading “All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes: Book Review”

Still Life: Book Review

*This is the part where I tell you I received this book  in exchange for doing a review. First of all, I love the cover. I chose to review “Still Life” by Christa Parrish because one of the characters is a photographer – a very famous, Pulitzer prize winning photographer. The story begins with theContinue reading “Still Life: Book Review”

The Gift of a Year

Someone gave me “The Gift of a Year” By Mira Kirshenbaum several years ago. I read it about two years ago. After reading the book, I decided to take some time out of an already hectic schedule to go back to school. It has not been an easy thing to do but I think thatContinue reading “The Gift of a Year”
