This book was such a great read! I laughed and cried! If you knew a child with cancer (weather they survived or not), this book will make you tear up. So moving. I recommend it to any girl who’s ever gone through life/relationship changes. That is, anyone 13-99+ 🙂 Find in catalog

Is it even possible not to like this poetry anthology? It makes me laugh and think and wish I were young again. It’s a quick read for an adult, but I like to read a few of the short poems before going to sleep in order to end the day on a high note. It’s […]

Having finally read it, I can agree. I’ve never found the usual themes or settings of paranormal romance compelling, but this […]
The last book I reviewed for this Challenge reminded me that good fiction communicates truth better than any non-fiction. Heinlein’s classic sci fi novel Stranger in a Strange Land let me know that good fiction (sci fi or otherwise) allows us to grok the world better than any non-fiction. This tale of a human born […]
I read this book fairly soon after reading “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah, so I was a little burnt out on WWII at the time. It took me MANY tries to get into “All The Light…” I ended up listening to the first half on audio book, but then that loan expired, and I had […]
