Lilac Girls Book Review

I’ve been reading historical fiction for a long time, and I’ve noticed that the genre adores stories about World War II. I can understand that. Authors can tackle one or multiple aspects of the war like women’s efforts, the Western Front, the Pacific Front, etc, and they can show them from any perspective. It’s aContinue reading “Lilac Girls Book Review”

Larry Sole isContinue reading “What Am I Reading – Chapter Ten”

The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi Volume I: Homecoming Book Review

Full disclosure: I was given a free audiobook version of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Wild Women of Michigan: A History of Spunk and Tenacity Book Review

Today is International Women’s Day. What a better way to celebrate it than reviewing a book that celebrates the women who defied expectations and changed the world. Coincidentally, I have one that just happens to fall into that category, and these women lived in Michigan at some point. It’s called Wild Women of Michigan: AContinue reading “Wild Women of Michigan: A History of Spunk and Tenacity Book Review”

Hello Everybody! What a wonderful first day of March! I’m looking forward to spring, especially to travel more! Even if I’m walking around the block, it’s traveling by pandemic standards.

Nighthawk Book Review

One of the most prolific authors who passed away last year (and not from COVID-19) was Clive Cussler. With and without credited ghost writers, he wrote over 70 books during his lifetime. These usually involved characters who worked at the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) and tried to save some aspect of the environment.Continue reading “Nighthawk Book Review”

The Book of Love: 50 Poems to Fall in Love Book Review

Full disclosure: I was given a free PDF copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Love is in the air, and there are many ways to express it. One way is to read poetry (no matter how corny it is), for they come from the most vulnerable and deepest emotions. Shah AsadContinue reading “The Book of Love: 50 Poems to Fall in Love Book Review”
