In Circling the Sun I was expecting more Meryl than Beryl. Perhaps this was due to the mention of Karen Blixen. Instead, I received a mix of Out of Africa and Seabiscuit. I thought the focus on Beryl’s love of horses was interesting and was glad that it did not deviate too far into her […]

First Impressions: The Vatican Princess by C.W. Gortner is an intriguing narrative of the Borgias.  There is drama, backstabbing and poison all tied up in one neat package.  I was immediately entranced. What I Liked: The pacing of the novel was fantastic. I was on the edge of my seat waiting upon the next conniving […]

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

January 31, 2014 Whitney Review 4 Comments

Interview with the Vampire had been recommended to me by several friends and picked up at my latest trip to the public library. I immediately became engrossed in this novel and was transported to 18th-century Louisiana.
