2022 Book Review: The Cousins

The Cousins by Karen McManus YA Mystery/Thriller, 2020 by Delacorte Press, 337 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Slow start. This one takes awhile to get going.

2022 Book Review: The Letter Carrier

The Letter Carrier by Laurie LC Lewis A Historical Fiction, 2022 by Willowsport Press, 322 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Dry. This text feels removed from the main character and her important story. I felt a lack of connection to her, which just made the story feel drier than I’d like. Formatting. The ebook, which is... Continue Reading →

I'm hitting that point where I feel stretched too thin, I think. Although that's likely... Continue Reading →

No Ivy League by Hazel Newlevant YA Graphic Novel, 2019 by Oni Press, 216 Pages What I Didn’t Like: I wanted a bit more detail. I get what we’re looking at here, it’s a snapshot of a summer. But I wanted the lessons to ring a little truer. I wanted to stay a bit longer... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Trial

The Trial by Franz Kafka  A Literary Fiction, 1925 by Der Prozess, 255 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Normally I like endings that leave you wondering but this one is literally unfinished.
