OK, so: may I get this out of the way? Yes, Talking as Fast as I Can is a book about Gilmore Girls: the original series, the reboot, and a little bit of everything about her career before and in between. Think what you may about Hollywood tell-alls, this is not really what I expected. While Graham does share all kinds of her ...
Yayyy it's December! I know everyone says it, but this really is my favorite time of year. Thanksgiving is the holiday that's dearest to my heart: no real commercialism--just family, a good meal, feeling grateful for what we have, and time together. Um, and did I mention pie? I have a thing for pie. Books I Reviewed: Above Us Only Sky ...
Mischling: (German. plural: Mischlinge): "mixed-blood." The legal term used in Nazi Germany to denote persons deemed to have both Aryan and Jewish ancestry. I thought I would be engrossed by Mischling. I have an intense curiosity about the years and people surrounding World War II, particularly those in Germany while the war raged. I have long believed in the complexity of humanity, ...
My dad's father is the third of my grandparents to be diagnosed with dementia. I sit next to him in the car as he drives us to brunch, today, and wonder for how much longer I'll be able to do this. He still remembers how to drive; how to eat; who I am. Someday, none of these things will ...
Some days, it seems like we could all use a little bit of joy in our lives, no? Maybe some of us are looking for a kinder, gentler world to escape to? Well, then! May I suggest ten of my favorite books that are exactly what I think you're looking for? 1. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society ...
Guys! I sat down this morning to choose THE book to share with you. I read a lot of books over the past year and a half, but I was sure there would be one that stood out as THE ONE--the powerhouse that must be reviewed and shared. And I found one. And then another, and another and another. So rather than ...
If you still follow me here or on Twitter, you may have heard some rumblings...I'm so excited to announce that I'll be book blogging again! It's time. I have missed you all, and I've missed sharing great books with you! So, what on earth have I been up to for the past year and a half? Highlights: Running a fitness blog ...
Landline is the book I kept putting off reading, because everyone said it was about a "magic phone." I'm not much for magic or fantasy, but then, neither is Rainbow Rowell, so I was a little curious. One of my friends kept telling me how much she loves it, though, and how it's not a book about a phone--it's ...
I'll admit that I still haven't read Andrews' Me & Earl and the Dying Girl, but I adore the movie and screenwriting, so I went in to The Haters with high expectations. I wanted to be in love. And I was, for the first half. The depictions of teenage jazz-poseurs, the male friendships, the subdued awkwardness...I fell hard for ...
Amy Snow | Fefferbooks
When Amy Snow came to me, I really wasn't sure what to think. It's clearly historical fiction, but though the cover art reads romance, it's billed as a mystery. More a gothic novel than anything else, it reads at times a little like Jane Eyre, but after not too long it takes on its own life. Amy is an orphan, found in the snow ...
