The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon

The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon

July 31, 2017 Whitney Review 2 Comments

First Impressions: The Night Sisters is first perceived as a murder/police procedural novel; a genre I eat up — bring it on! Novel Impressions: I have mixed feelings about The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon. Like the The One I Left Behind this novel is told in flashbacks of Amy’s mother Rose and the events […]

Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

July 28, 2017 Whitney Review 0 Comments

Plot: I liked the plot, the idea of a dragon overtaking a community was very interesting to me and held my attention throughout. Characters: I loved the characters, especially Vimes and Carrot. Carrot’s naiveté,  sense of taking things literally and by the book kept me smiling. As for Vimes, he was on the straight and narrow […]

Begin Again (2013)

Begin Again (2013)

Begin Again was a cheesy imitation of Coyote Ugly which was an ugly picture to begin with. The film stars Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine and revolves around Keira Knightley’s character Gretta getting into the music business after her boyfriend (Adam Levine) gets too big for his britches when he strikes it big. […]

Turn To Page 394 Tuesday #1

Turn To Page 394 Tuesday #1

Similar to Friday 56, Turn to Page 394 requires turning to page 394 and sharing a sentence, passage or whatever strikes your fancy on that particular page. For my first Turn to Page 394, I find it most fitting to start with Harry Potter. Disappointingly, The Prisoner of Azkaban does not have 394 pages, thus […]
