Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. This week I can’t […]

Mischling by Affinity Konar

Mischling by Affinity Konar

Posted March 28, 2017 by Whitney in Review / 2 Comments

Mischling by Affinity Konar is a historical fiction novel on a subject that is rarely touched in this genre — Josef Mengele. The Holocaust is filled with many, unimaginable horrors but “the zoo” in Auschwitz is repulsive. The “experiments” preformed were enough to make one ill. However, the main story is not of blindness but […]

Beauty and the Beast 2017

Posted March 27, 2017 by Whitney in movie review / 6 Comments

I saw Beauty and the Beast last week and was more than happy to be their guest. I really liked that the opening introduction stayed truer to the original story than the 1991 animated film. Instead of the Beast appearing because Belle’s father trespassed Maurice is jailed for taking a rose. This was a nice […]

A New Meme: Fiction to Film

A New Meme: Fiction to Film

Posted March 25, 2017 by Whitney in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

I’ve stated it before, but I’m a sucker for a film that has been adapted from a book. I’m not sure what it is because the book is almost always better than its adaptation, yet I still love seeing a story come to screen. Recently, I’ve been watching a lot of films that fit this […]

The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff

The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff

Posted March 8, 2017 by Whitney in Review / 2 Comments

The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff could easily have been yet another novel about surviving WWII. At first, I was nervous as it seemed to mirror Water for Elephants and while that in itself is a good story I found the ending to be disappointing. Therefore, I hoped for a different result. Fortunately, I was […]
