June Book Review

July 22, 2017 // monthly book review // No Comments

The Bone People by Keri Hulme; 3.25 (out of 5) stars I know that the first time I read this, I really didn’t understand it. So probably that 1 star wasn’t fair since it was (at least partly, if not […]

May Book Review

June 14, 2017 // monthly book review // No Comments

I’ve been reading so slowly lately that I only have a few books to choose from for May reads. I rarely read fantasy, but: The Fifth Sacred Thing by Starhawk; 3 (out of 5) stars There is such love in […]

April Book Review

Where She Goes by Kate Gray; 4 (out of 5) stars I’m sad that this is the last of the Kate Gray books that are published that I hadn’t read, so I don’t have more to read (until she publishes […]

March Book Review

April 7, 2017 // monthly book review // No Comments

The Mercy Room (alternatively titled Love Without Resistance) by Gilles Rozier; 2 stars (out of 5) So there’s some nice language here and for me it’s an interesting story of questionable morality. I like what it does on that level. But […]

Two or Three Things I Know For Sure by Dorothy Allison; 5 stars (out of 5) Wow. So I don’t like everything Dorothy Allison has ever done, but when I do like it, holy f**k I love it. This is […]

January Book Review

March 9, 2017 // monthly book review // No Comments

Still behind. But read in January: Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear by Kate Carroll de Gutes; 5 stars (out of 5) I hesitate to give 5 stars because that’s just not something I usually do, but I can’t […]

September Book Review

October 5, 2016 // monthly book review // No Comments

Misery by Stephen King; 4.5 stars (out of 5) This might need to be 5 stars. This was my first ever Stephen King, way back at the beginning of 7th grade in 1988 or so. Reading it now I can […]

August Book Review

September 2, 2016 // monthly book review // No Comments

Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley; 3.25 stars (out of 5) I think this is my first noir. I really liked what Mosley did with the characters and making race so front and center. I liked the writing and […]

July Book Review

August 3, 2016 // monthly book review // No Comments

At the Bottom of the River by Jamaica Kincaid; .75 stars (out of 5) It’s been a while since I’ve stayed true to myself and posted a more critical review. So, sorry Jamaica Kincaid, but here we go. This gets […]

The Poet and the Donkey by May Sarton; 3.5 (out of 5) stars I think this is the first May Sarton I’ve ever read. And it’s quite lovely. A little whimsy of a book, with a sweet story, with a bit of […]
