The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

The best way to describe the novel The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney is to compare it to The Royal Tenenbaums but without the understated humor. The Plumb children were self-absorbed, entitled and while adults acted like children. In short, the characters were all unlikable and were not the reason I became invested in the […]

The Girls by Emma Cline

I am a lover of true crime and have reread the disturbing true crime novel Helter Skelter several times. Therefore, when The Girls by Emma Cline was released I knew I had to read it. I will admit, that I was a bit skeptical at first as both of Cline’s parents are in the publishing […]

Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon

The first thing that came to mind upon starting Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon was the 1997 film Titanic.  Both are media based on an iconic means of travel that ended in disaster and chronicle the last days of the passenger’s lives. Fortunately, Flight of Dreams delivers an amazing look at the occupants onboard […]

Victoria by Daisy Goodwin

Outside of Emily Blunt’s performance of Queen Victoria she is a monarch I know very little about.  Daisy Goodwin has created a tapestry in sharing this young Victoria’s early reign. At first, her ascent to the throne read like something out of a Tudor novel with constant conniving and scheming to reach the top and […]

A Reading Slump

I have been unmotivated in regards to reading and blogging.  I am in a slump.  It is not that I have lost interest in these hobbies but rather a dispassion towards our current society.  I have stated it before but one’s emotional state can really affect my reading experience and an orange has done it […]
