Graphic Novel Review- Everything Is Teeth by Evie Wyld

This is a book about a girl and her obsession with sharks. I admit I have sort of a weird fascination with them myself. Every time I am in the ocean I am half thrilled and half terrified. What got me was the artwork in the memoir. It is superb. It has deliberate color schemes […]

Book Review Measuring Time by Helon Habila

I must first say this is not a light read. It is a demanding novel. I originally bought this book because I was interested in how a Nigerian would write about disability. One of the twins in this story has sickle cell anemia which is apparently common in Nigeria and kills many people.  In the […]

Book Revew:American Housewife: Stories by Helen Ellis

This book was blowing up in the book blogging world, so I had to read it. My hold at the library came up quickly. I read it while recovering from surgery but I was in no condition to write, so I am just now getting it up. First, I read this through the haze of Percocet. I […]

Book Review: The Tsar of Love and Techno by Anthony Marra

OMG Y’ALL THIS BOOK! I actually stayed up all night reading it. It is not a feel good book but it will make you want to reach out and try and give the people in it a better life. It is freezing cold and gloomy in NE Ohio so while I read about the Arctic […]

Book Review: Zombie by Joyce Carol Oates

Y’all I am gonna be honest. When I was done with this book I was all like   via GIPHY I mean I have no words. In a nutshell, the author Joyce Oates takes up inside a (fictional) mind of a sexual predator. I mean she NAILS it. At first, I had trouble reading because the […]

Book Review: Empathy Exams by Leslie Jamison

Many bloggers who opinions and reviews I trust raved about this book, so I just HAD to read it to see what all the hype was about. Plus I love essays, so that was a big plus. This book started out with Leslie Jamison writing about her role in acting with teaching in training Drs […]

Book Review: Sweetness #9 by Stephan Eirik Clark

  I was browsing on NetGalley and saw this book and loved the blurb so I requested it and was approved for it.   I have to admit that the timing of this book is excellent. It seems the whole world is wanting grass-fed meat and is warning about the dangers of sweeteners. This book is […]

Book Review:Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott

  All of last year my faith took a very serious nosedive. I am trying to build it back up to where it was but I was not in the mood for a “preachy” book and I LOVED her book Bird by Bird so I decided to pick this book up.     When you […]
