If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler

If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler is a post-modern novel that becomes obsessed with its own meta-ness. The structure is odd where it is like 10 stories contained in one book, each written in a different genre. It totally sounded like something that would be up my alley,...

Indelible (Grant County #4)

Indelible is the fourth book in the Grant County series, which takes place in a fictional town in Georgia. It centers on three main characters: Sara Linton, the town’s pediatrician and coroner (gotta love small towns); Jeffrey Tolliver, chief of police recently remarried to Sarah; and Detective Lena Adams,...

Most of this volume focuses on what is going on at Hilltop. Maggie is in charge and there is a new danger out there in the woods. The Whispers first appear as the latest big bad. The Walking Dead, Vol. 23: Whispers Into Screams by Robert Kirkman Pages: 136Genre: Graphic Novel,...

Beartown

Have you ever cried while reading a book in public? This almost happened to me while reading Beartown. I should have known better. At a certain point while reading another book by Fredrik Backman (My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry), I started crying and didn’t stop until...

Saga, Volume 8

The eighth volume for Saga was way more light-hearted than volume seven, which was extremely dark and sad. I remember having to step away from the story a bit after finishing that volume. Saga, Volume 8 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples Pages: 146Genre: Graphic Novel, Science FictionPublished:...

Behind Closed Doors

I don’t understand any of the reviews that compare this book to Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. Besides those books and this one being thrillers, they don’t have much in common. Those books both deal with unreliable narrators. I never felt that the protagonist was unreliable....

The Witches of New York

I loved the feminist angle of this novel and the time period of 1880s New York. I did struggle with the pacing of the book in the middle, but really enjoyed the beginning and end of it. The Witches of New York by Ami McKay Pages: 545Genre: Historical Fiction, Magical...

Battle of the Sexes

The 1973 true story of former tennis champ, Bobby Riggs, saying he could beat the women’s number one tennis player, Billie Jean King....

Fall Movies: Opening October 13, 2017

I feel like there should be more horror movies coming out on Friday, October 13th, but we only have one to choose from with Happy Death Day. It seems goofy with its Groundhog Day plot, but I still want to see it. The Foreigner starts off showing Jackie Chan...

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

This was a fun story to read during October. I don’t believe I have ever actually read the story of the Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane before, even though I knew the story well. I had watched the old Disney cartoon many times as a child, and images of...
