Book Review: Bellman & Black

Posted October 25, 2013 by Whitney in Review / 4 Comments

I was greatly anticipating Diane Setterfield’s  next novel as soon as I put down The Thirteenth Tale. the writing style was intoxicating and held perfect suspense.  I was expecting the same caliber with Bellman & Black.  I received the same beautiful writing but the suspense I was looking for was not.  I know it is […]

Book Review: Divergent

Book Review: Divergent

Posted October 23, 2013 by Whitney in Review / 5 Comments

I originally decided to read Divergent because of the impending film release in March and thus jumped on the Divergent bandwagon.  I am so glad I did.  All the characters are well-developed and the inevitable teen romance between Tris and Four, while predictable was well done and like Eric to Ariel all I could think […]

Review: The Last Winter of Dani Lancing

Review: The Last Winter of Dani Lancing

Posted October 16, 2013 by Whitney in Review / 2 Comments

The Last Winter of Dani Lancing is tragic, the premise unimaginable, yet it was engrossing.  P.D.Viner created characters that made you feel.  Grief.  I felt her parent’s grief, it hung in the air like a cloud before a rain storm.  You’d think with the subject matter, a girl murdered with her parents left to pick […]
