Ross Poldark by Winston Graham

Ross Poldark by Winston Graham

Posted July 28, 2015 by Whitney in Review / 1 Comment

Review: Sadly, when I hear the name Ross I automatically think of Friends Ross Geller.  Poor pathetic Ross who for ten years pines over Rachel.  Ross Poldark by Winston Graham could have easily fallen into this mold, pining for Elizabeth for the next ten books.  Fortunately we are spared. I am a sucker for melodrama, […]

Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus

Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus

First Impressions By reading the title Snow White Must Die, one would think it Nele Neuhaus has written a was a Snow White retelling. It is dark like Grimm’s Tale, but the comparison stops there. Impressions While Reading Pia and Oliver were fantastic detective characters. Their star power as a team reminded me of Rob […]

The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison

The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison

Posted July 17, 2015 by Whitney in Review / 0 Comments

First Impressions The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison could have been a good mystery novel if it focused on the murder of Carrie Helm. Impressions While Reading Biddy Linda Wallheim, amateur sleuth took center stage. She had to insert her nose into everything Gladys Kravitz style. What most annoyed me was her obsession with […]

Proposed  Blog Tour: Explore the Classics

Proposed Blog Tour: Explore the Classics

Posted July 15, 2015 by Whitney in Explore the Classics / 1 Comment

“Classic’ – a book which people praise and don’t read.” Spoken by Mark Twain these words could not be truer. Classics I feel are the basis for popular art, think of the constant spewing of Jane Austen retellings or adaptations of Shakespeare because these stories are timeless and have transcended centuries. I have my comfort […]

Book Review: The Far End of Happy

Book Review: The Far End of Happy

Posted July 7, 2015 by Whitney in Review / 0 Comments

The Far End of Happy was an intense read and never knew what Jeff would do next, nor the repercussions that Ronnie’s decisions created.  It had page-turning chapter endings and thoroughly kept my attention, but, unfortunately, Ronnie’s mother Beverly and Mother-in-law Janet bickered throughout the novel creating a Jerry Springer show vibe, minus throwing chairs.  […]
