A Review: The Hot Guy

The Hot Guy by Mel Campbell My rating: 3 of 5 stars I liked the premise of this book, and really wanted it to be more. It sounded fun, had some really funny, witty writing and even had a decent plot line. Which makes this a difficult review to write, because I did enjoy the [...]

Follow Me Back – Review

We live in a social media world. For better or for worse. There was a time, not so long ago, when sharing every aspect of your personal life would have been considered obnoxious and narcissistic. Who needs to know where I am or what I am eating every hour of the day? Those private details [...]

Dominion: Sneak Peek & Review

Like a cold hand massaging my brain I feel Roman infiltrate further and all of a sudden, my eyes lose sight of the room. I’m sitting at a small white table. The room is bare except for a clock above the door and a one-way glass window. Sitting at the table with me are three [...]

A review: Me Before You

Typical romance novels are not my jam. I can do without heaving bosoms and deep, meaningful stares. Bleh. And after falling for the 50 shades hype, I am highly skeptical of all hyped romance novels. Part of my issue with the genre is all the sex. Not that I care about sex in a book. [...]

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli My rating: 4 of 5 stars I loved this book! It was such an adorable, easy read. Simon is such a lovable character. Even when he is having a bad day, you just want to hug him, don't you? There is so much I adore in [...]

My Life to Live

Most everyone I know grew up watching soap operas. At least, they watched them in the way we watch what our mothers, and aunts, and grandmothers watched. Reluctantly since if we didn't, we wouldn't watch anything at all. So, willingly or unwillingly, we all knew the plots. My mother watched All My Children religiously. She [...]

How to Build a Girl

The other day, I finished reading 'How to build a Girl', by Caitlin Moran. Days later, I am still thinking about it. First, I loved this book. I flagged so many quotes it now resembles the infamous photo of how many people have died in a Game of Thrones novel. I will reread this book [...]

The main characters were played by Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams, two actors I enjoy watching. The best part, it was [...]
