Eleanor & Park Book Review

Lately, I’ve been thinking about novels that have been considered problematic within the last few years. Some have been labeled that way for decades. But, does that mean readers are not allowed to read them anymore? I don’t think so. To understand why a book is deemed an issue, one must know the context –Continue reading “Eleanor & Park Book Review”

I Owe You One Book Review

Anyone who has read romance novels will know how predictable they can get. Some like the familiarity, while others want something more atypical. For me, it depends if I’m reading it before going to bed, or if I’m doing that during the daytime. I bring all of this up because I read I Owe YouContinue reading “I Owe You One Book Review”

Hearts Unbroken Book Review

As a librarian, I come across books that have never been checked out all the time. Recently, I decided to check out a YA book called Hearts Unbroken by Cynthia Leitich Smith. At that time, it hadn’t been checked out at all, and had been out on the shelves for nearly two years. There isContinue reading “Hearts Unbroken Book Review”

Rose Madder Book Review

Well, ladies and gentlemen: I just read my very first Stephen King novel. You probably think it would be something like It, The Shining, or Carrie, but nope! It was his 1995 book Rose Madder. Fans and even King himself regard it as one of his weaker novels, but I thought it was pretty goodContinue reading “Rose Madder Book Review”

Book Reviews From the Vault: The Rosie Project

Last year, Oprah revealed the list of the top 20 greatest ever romance novels according to Goodreads Reviews, and The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion was on it. At first, I was a little shocked, but after reading it, I had to agree. Lately, I have been reading a lot of books about curmudgeons andContinue reading “Book Reviews From the Vault: The Rosie Project”

One Day in December Book Review

I usually don’t read romantic holiday stories. They tend to get really corny and clichéd, and they are very predictable. In other words, they feel like Hallmark movies. If I were to read one, I would be making fun of it right off the bat. Recently, however, I discovered a romantic holiday book that IContinue reading “One Day in December Book Review”
