Book Review | My Lovely Wife

Over the past year or so, I’ve been reading quite a few thrillers. They’re (almost) always quick, exciting reads. And they’re really just fun. I’ve been in the mood for a new thriller, and was looking for one that would blow my mind. Samantha Downing’s debut novel, My Lovely Wife, fit the bill. (All reviews are […]

Book Review | The Liar’s Room

Last year, I went through a bit of a thriller phase, and I’ve been itching to pick up another one. And, I’ll admit it, the tagline of Simon Lelic’s The Liar’s Room hooked me. I’m not quite sure what I was expecting, but this book definitely went to a place I was not anticipating at all. (All […]

For two years during grad school, I worked as a nanny. So I tend to avoid books or movies about nannies, because seeing it from a distance is kind of a weird experience. Being a nanny is such a strange and intimate job – you end up falling in love with a kid that’s not […]

Book Review | See What I Have Done

Like many of you, I’m sure, I have a weird obsession with true crime. So I’ve been kind of obsessed with Lizzie Borden ever since I first discovered her story, which was at least ten years ago. So it’s been a while. And yet, I had not read any books about her or the legendary […]
