The Three-Body Problem: Review

When I first started reading this book, I had no intention of writing and posting a review on here. It was “hard” Science Fiction and that was a sub-genre I was unfamiliar with and in some ways, I was intimidated to write a review, afraid that I would get something wrong or misunderstand something. But […]

True Grit: Review

“People do not give it credence that a fourteen-year-old girl could leave home and go off in the wintertime to avenge her father’s blood but it did not seem so strange then, although I will say it did not happen every dray. I was just fourteen  years of age when a coward going by the […]

And I’m trying to follow that advice as often as possible. I decided to read Fortune Smiles because it is an award-winning collection. (It won the National […]

Out Of My Mind: Review

Ugh! I keep disappearing for long stretches of time. I really need to get better about that.  Before I came across this book, I assumed that most of  Sharon Draper’s books were geared towards the YA crowd. It was a pleasant surprise when I stumbled upon Out Of My Mind in Barnes and Noble. I wanted to […]
