Adults by Emma Jane Unsworth

What a great time to be a book lover! For those of us who can think of nothing better than being forced to stay indoors and read, well, this crazy new Covid 19 reality is heaven on a stick.  My bedside table is piled high with new, fresh, delicious reads because leaving the house for […]

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

Well hasn’t this book caused quite the stir for all the wrong reasons. Before I get into that gumf, my message is simple  – READ THIS PLEASE –  because American Dirt is one hell of a book and Jeanine Cummins is one hell of a writer. The story is about Mexican woman Lydia and her […]

City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

City of Girls is the most delightful romp and I chomped on it ravenously like a candy apple, which is fitting because if I had one word to sum City of Girls up, it is delicious! This story sparkles.  It is irresistible and I fell under the spell of all its characters from the get-go. […]
