It’s time to face the music, as of Monday Google Friend Connect will be no more.  I signed up for Bloglovin’ when I first heard of this travesty, I like the site but was always in denial.  I was under the delusion that Google would change its mind.  Apparently not.  Switching readers is like the […]

Review: The Obituary Writer

Review: The Obituary Writer

Posted June 28, 2013 by Whitney in Review / 1 Comment

An obituary exhibits surviving family members, degrees, slight accomplishments, but never a full story of the decease’s life.  Both Vivien Lowe and Ann Hood showcase this in The Obituary Writer. I almost dropped The Obituary Writer twenty pages in.  When we are first introduced to Claire the reader is indulged to her thoughts on sex […]

Book Review: The Other Typist

Book Review: The Other Typist

Posted June 26, 2013 by Whitney in Review / 2 Comments

I did something I hardly ever do, I read The Other Typist in one day. A few weeks ago a fellow blogger, Elizabeth at Silver Reviews warned me that The Other Typist was a book I would have to talk about, and she was right!  It was incredible.  The ending was a complete twist that I […]

Review: The Silent Wife

From the beginning we know that Jodi will kill her husband Todd.  Like S.J. Watson’s Before I Go To Sleep in which we are reminded to “not trust Ben” this statement looms in the back of your head.  After this thought, the first two words that come to mind are  Gone Girl.  We have a […]

Review: Waiting to Be Heard

Review: Waiting to Be Heard

Posted June 19, 2013 by Whitney in Review / 10 Comments

First and foremost, I would like to note that I checked out Waiting to Be Heard from the library.  I did not buy or receive a free copy, but I did read the book. Why the disclaimer?  Because anything negative said about Waiting to Be Heard (particularly on Amazon) gets bombarded with accusations and automatically […]
