I’ve Read Stuff

   All These Perfect Strangers by Aoife Clifford was a gripping read in which you are never sure if the narrator is being honest or not. Told in three different timelines it was confusing at first, but then I found myself sucked in. I enjoyed the road Clifford took me down and […]

People Who Knew Me – Kim Hooper

People Who Knew Me – Kim Hooper

People Who Knew Me by Kim Hooper is a unique work. It goes from the present and then flows to the past in alternating chapters telling the distinctly different lives of Emily and Connie. They are in fact the same person but a decision directly after the events of September 11, […]

Eleven Hours – Pamela Erens

Eleven Hours – Pamela Erens

Eleven Hours by Pamela Erens packs a lot of emotion into a short book. At just 176 pages and spanning the time frame of eleven hours (I know, that would be hard to guess!) it focuses on a woman in labor and the pregnant nurse assigned to her. Lore, the one in labor, […]

Burning Down the House – Jane Mendelsohn

Burning Down the House – Jane Mendelsohn

Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope. Not at all for me. Burning Down the House was a study of a pretentious, narcissistic and pretty much just awful family. I was expecting a moving drama in the style of The Color of Our Sky, but instead got a different version of the spoiled group in […]

I Met Someone – Bruce Wagner

I Met Someone – Bruce Wagner

I Met Someone was so close to being the first book I have ever DNF’d. It was just so not for me. I opened with a self absorbed star name dropping like it was her full time job, moved to a young man who did things for the LULZ (and then explained […]

The Passenger – Lisa Lutz

The Passenger – Lisa Lutz

I have stated many times that I am tired of books being compared to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train. Those two books started a love of psychological thrillers in me and I have been hunting for the next one that could match up. And I kept being […]
