The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman has a very interesting premise, a couple who run a lighthouse find a baby and raise it as their own. I was intrigued and looked forward to reading of the consequences this act would invoke. I enjoyed the sections of the book that described Tom and Isabel’s courtship. […]

I typically don’t read young adult unless it is in the form of Harry Potter. However, a new-to-me young adult book usually gets me out of a reading slump and A Monster Calls was my pick up of choice. It is a depressing book, dealing with the impending death of a child’s mother, but “happy […]

Posted April 6, 2017 by Whitney in movie review / 0 Comments

Actors: Director: Writers: Release Date: October 7, 2016 Genre: The Girl on the Train is one of the few instances were the movie is better than the book. I did not like the book at all so why see the movie you ask? I’m a fan of Emily Blunt, she is so cute and I […]

It has been done since Pride and Prejudice. Because of this, there wasn’t a plot-twist I didn’t see coming, and sat back to watch another predictable chick flick. […]
