The Truth According to Us I had read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Annie Barrows, and her aunt Mary Ann Shaffer back in 2009. I also read the Ivy and Bean series with my daughter that Annie Barrows does with Sophie Blackall. But when the new Annie Barrows book The Truth According …
Royal Wedding, by Meg Cabot I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an advance reading copy of Royal Wedding, by Meg Cabot. What is interesting to note, is that this is the first book in the Princess Diaries series that is an adult title. The book will be released on June 2, 2015, I …
I have put great effort into reading 17 Carnations: The Royals, The Nazis And The Biggest Cover-up In History, by Andrew Morton, and I have to say I will not put in anymore. Andrew Morton’s Book 17 Carnations: The Royals, the Nazis and the Biggest Cover-Up in History is a non-fiction historical account of the …

I’ve wanted to be in business for myself for a few years now, however, every idea that I imagined didn’t seem like the right one. But in the past few months landing the job of reviewer, first of Tech and then books, on this website has fulfilled what I have been looking for. When I decided …
I am a huge fan of Downton Abbey. The characters (Maggie Smith is by far an acting genius and I’m glad that she is still acting), the way they speak and the clothes of the era. When I first started reading At the Water’s Edge, by Sara Gruen, the first chapter made me very sad. …
With graduation coming for hundreds of thousands of students, what to give the future generation as inspiration, has been stale for a few years. Oh The Places You Will Go, by Dr. Seuss, is the go to book that all parents, grandparents and extended family give the young graduate (along with money). But what if there …
Girl on the Train has more power because of the writing. Since I had been reading so much non-fiction I thought I would read a fiction book next. I wanted something that was enticing, that would grab me from the start. It had to be a book that was start to finish an amazing read. …
