Clawback by J.A. Jance

Clawback by J.A. Jance

September 27, 2016 Whitney Review 0 Comments

First Impressions Clawback by J.A. Jance felt like it had been ripped from a 48 hours episode. With a financial scandal that ends in murder the reader can only expect twists and turns. Impressions While Reading Like in 48 Hours, the viewer always has an inkling of the outcome as the suspect is only interviewed […]

Mata Hari’s Last Dance by Michelle Moran

Mata Hari’s Last Dance by Michelle Moran

July 20, 2016 Whitney Review 1 Comment

First Impressions My knowledge of Mara Hari extended to her profession as an exotic dancer. It seemed a bit one-dimensional at first.  Although, Michelle Moran always excels at expanding the lives of historical figures.  Thus plowed right in, preparing myself for Fantine’s “I dreamed a dream”. Impressions While Reading I need not have worried. Margaretha […]

Impressions While Reading I thought the subject matter of polygamy, while maybe not original, was well established with an intricate web of action. Certain aspects were a little […]

Fond Of Previously I had only read Michelle Moran’s novels that were set in Egypt. Asps, Pharaohs and Pyramids has always been an era that interests me. I suppose it is comfortable to stick with what you know. Nevertheless, I enjoy Moran’s writing style and become lost in her stories. Therefore, when I saw Rebel […]

Book Review: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet

August 29, 2014 Whitney Review 0 Comments

Fond of: I thought The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet was a nice, modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.  Even though I know it was based on The Secret Diaries of Lizzie Bennet YouTube series it was still a little reminiscent of Disney’s Lizzie Maguire.  I also liked how the author incorporated places into this retelling. […]

Initial Thoughts: When I first heard of Landing Gear I thought it had a very interesting premise and was curious as to how all these different stories would twine together. Fond Of: I loved the idea of Landing Gear, it was as fresh as the air Yacub breathed in on his way down to Earth, […]

When my grandmother was a child she had a doll.  She was playing with this doll while work was being done on her home.  She set her toy down but when she returned it had been walled in, never to be seen again.  This what first came to mind upon the discovery of Nell’s Diary. […]
