Book Review: “Remarkably Bright Creatures, By Shelly Van Pelt”

Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelly Van Pelt is a wonderful story. Being from the PNW, she did justice with the setting and the familiarity of the area. But honestly, where to begin?!

Book Review: “Gallant, by Victoria Schawb”

First of all- any book written by V.E. Schawb, is ALWAYS a must read for me. This book, supposed to be a young adult book, is rather dark and is an excellent listen on Audible. "Olivia... Olivia... Olivia... you must not return to Gallant." Just typing the words I can hear the narrator speaking those… Continue reading Book Review: “Gallant, by Victoria Schawb”

Book Review: “The Paris Apartment, by Lucy Foley”

Nothing is as it seems. Lucy Foley is a brilliant author. I listened to this book, and it is good... but not quite as enthralling as her other novels.

Yet he isn't there in his apartment and… Continue reading Book Review: “The Paris Apartment, by Lucy Foley”
