The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead held great promise. The novel had an interesting idea of the Underground Railroad being an actual railroad, unfortunately, that is where it ends. The Underground Railroad was an undeveloped idea that never turns from a cocoon into a butterfly. The characters were rather dull and, despite all they had […]

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

Posted August 17, 2017 by Whitney in Review / 0 Comments

Nicholas Sparks is a very formulaic author. He designs two star-crossed lovers living on opposite sides of the tracks and despite all odds come together. Even if I had not seen the movie before hand I could have seen where the story was going. Although, being predictable was not my biggest complaint with The Notebook. […]

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff

Posted August 10, 2017 by Whitney in Review / 2 Comments

I cannot believe Fates and Furie was Obama’s best book of 2015. Yes, this is a story of marriage but not a realistic one. The majority of the book focused on their sex-life, with Lotto and Mathilde coming off as sex-crazed teenagers and was more information than I needed. Fates and Furies is split into […]
