Book Review | Circe

I have always been a fan of mythology, especially in fiction. Whether it’s incorporated into epic sci-fi or a great historical novel, I am here for it.

And I’d seen Robert McCloskey’s famous children’s book of the same title almost as many times in bookstores and gift shops. Not only is it a […]

Book Review | The Girls

I’ll admit that the main reason I read this book was because I was curious. Not in the usual way that leads me to pick up any book; I was, truthfully, only a little curious about the plot and the characters. They did sound intriguing, since this book was inspired by the Charles Manson cult […]
