Book Review: Foxcatcher

I read this memoir as an audiobook (which I don’t normally do, but it was the only version the library had), and I am not sure if that was what made it so difficult to get through or if the overall storyline was flawed. Foxcatcher has some issues in terms of writing style, flow, and too many…

Cottage Again?

Off to the Cottage (again)

I was hoping that I would be done Golden (the next book in the Once Upon a Time series) by today, but unfortunately I’m not. And I am off to my family’s cottage tomorrow evening for the long weekend which of course means no wifi. So I will have to finish Golden and Wild Orchid by…

Book Review: Summer Sisters

It has been a long time since I read Judy Blume’s books as a child, and as I began reading Summer Sisters, it was definitely not what I remembered, however it was no less enjoyable. Summer Sisters is a coming-of-age story about two friends, Caitlin Somers and Victoria “Vix” Leonard, who spend every summer (beginning in…
