I don’t always read in order, that is, in the sequence in which an author’s novels are published. I read The Bone Curse before […]

Long Overdue Book Reviews: Changelings: The Rise of Kings by Katie Sullivan #Mondayblogs #bookreview

I continue with my backlog of book reviews, and I do hope that my tardy reviews might actually result in sales for the authors I’ve so long neglected. At least, then I won’t have to feel so guilty 😉  *** One of my favorite writers and favorite people is Katie Sullivan. When I first met […]

A Traditional Kind of Book Review: Bird Light by Elizabeth Cohen #MondayBlogs #bookreview #poetry

Poetry is like pornography: I know it when I see it. Or read it if you want to be picky. Or maybe it’s an acquired taste, something you have to be trained to learn to like. Gin martinis might be an acquired taste, but in my case, I took to a gin martini the way […]

To Write, or Not Write, a Book Review

A Different Kind of Book Review: Dolls Behaving Badly by Cinthia Ritchie

The sweet aroma of warm cinnamon coffee cake circled the kitchen, enveloping the cousins as they sat in their usual spots around the table.  Randy was pouring coffee into plain white stoneware mugs.  Mary had conceded to using the mugs instead of the usual delicate teacups she preferred.  Randy wasn’t clumsy by nature but he […]

A Different Kind of Book Review: Living Life Backwards by Peter Wells

Randy shifted his weight in the uncomfortable straight-back wooden chair.  He was afraid to grasp the handle of the delicate teacup though he was thirsty for the hot tea.  Mary and her cousins were quiet, scrolling through their respective Kindles and Kobos for the book they were to discuss that night.  Randy didn’t know how […]

A Different Kind of Book Review: Memoirs of a Dilettante Volume One by Helena Hann-Basquiat

Mary picked up the soft cover book from her pillow where it had been resting since Lucy left it there.  She opened the book so she could see the front and back cover, the red, black, and white colors making her eyes dance.  Red was her favorite color.  Black used to be the color of […]
