The Hate U Give: #bookreview

“Your voices matter, your dreams matter, your lives matter. Be the roses that grow in the concrete.”― Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give How many of us would do the right thing even if it put ourselves and our family in danger? In The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Starr Carter is like many 16 year-oldContinue reading “The Hate U Give: #bookreview”

Harrow Lake: #bookreview

The Kat Ellis book, Harrow Lake,is set in the town of Harrow Lake. Approximately 20 years ago, the town was the setting for Nightjar, a horror movie directed by Nolan Nox. He met and fell I love with the actress who played the main character, Little Bird. Her real name was Lorelei. Doesn’t everyone alwaysContinue reading “Harrow Lake: #bookreview”

Beneath the Broken Moon: #bookreview

Beneath the Broken Moon by Patrick Todoroff was set in a land similar to Middle Earth after the apocalypse. The main character is Addas, a half human half ork, who has been living in an ork settlement. I use the term living loosely. He is not treated well by anyone except maybe a goblin namedContinue reading “Beneath the Broken Moon: #bookreview”

Jerkwater: #bookreview

  Jerkwater by Jamie Zerndt is set in Mercer, Wisconsin. It’s typical small jerkwater town, except for the rotests for Native American fishing rights. There isn’t a specific date but in 1983 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Native Americans could spearfish in lakes they had previously relinquished. So if I had to guess IContinue reading “Jerkwater: #bookreview”

The Woman in White: #Spooktober Book Review

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins was not exactly what I expected. I thought it would be more of a Gothic novel but it’s more of a mystery novel. It was still a great book. The Woman in White is considered to be Collins’ greatest work. The book is set in the United KingdomContinue reading “The Woman in White: #Spooktober Book Review”

Her Dear and Loving Husband: #Spooktober Book Review

. The book is set in Salem, Massachusetts. It’s the perfect setting for a book about vampires and witches. Sarah has had awful nightmares for many years. She has also recently divorced her husband and moved to Salem. In many of the dreams, it’s like she’s seeing someone else’s memories. She also sees a manContinue reading “Her Dear and Loving Husband: #Spooktober Book Review”

From Breath and Ruin: #bookreview

From Breath and Ruin has some good things going for it. The characters are fairly well described. The book is told from the main point of view of Lyric. So we know everything that she knows. Some of the characters – like Luken – could have been fleshed out a little more. He doesn’t sayContinue reading “From Breath and Ruin: #bookreview”

The Accidental Beauty Queen: #bookreview

Beauty pageants have changed a little bit since I watched them as a young girl. Basically, they are the same. I think that in more recent years beauty pageant organizers want us to think of it as a scholarship competition for well rounded beautiful people. There’s a stigma attached to beauty pageants now that thereContinue reading “The Accidental Beauty Queen: #bookreview”

The Poisoned City: #bookreview

Humans need five basic things to survive: air, shelter, food, sleep and water. If any of these things are not up to standards, we will become ill at the very least.   Air pollution, spoiled food, insufficient sleep, houses with mold and toxic water are just a few examples of things that can seriously affect ourContinue reading “The Poisoned City: #bookreview”

VOX: #bookreview

Can you imagine living in a world where women can’t voice their opinion? Some people would say that there are many places where women can’t express themselves. They would be right of course.  In the dystopian book, Vox by Christina Dalcher, women in America have to wear counters on their wrist which counts their words.Continue reading “VOX: #bookreview”
