Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan | Book Review

Rating: ★★★ Review: Any book that has the word “book” somewhere in the title will always catch my attention and at least make me read the back to get more info about it before deciding if it’s worth a read and ultimately a purchase. I obviously thought it was because I bought it, and although …

Read of the Town: Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

I just L-O-V-E the Ransom Riggs Peculiar Children books! The 3rd in a series, which I believe will end with the 4th book some time next year, has an amazing cover. Ransom has already said this is his most favorite cover and I’d have to agree! My guess as to why would be because the …

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion (Book Review)

“I may how found a solution to the Wife Problem.” Review: Wow, did I love this book and did I need this book as well! That’s probably why I read it in just 5 days time! This year has been pretty slow for me in the reading department so I figured I would try something …

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson (Book Review)

“A fug of tobacco smoke and damp clammy air hit her as she entered the cafe.” Review: I’m actually writing this review MUCH LATER than anticipated (after having read 3 other books in between) so you must excuse me if it seems a bit all over the place and disjointed. I promise to get back …
