July Book Review

February 1, 2016 // monthly book review // No Comments

Ok, so let’s catch up so I can post my Jan review. Sheesh. The Age of Grief by Jane Smiley, 3 stars (out of 5); read in July 2015 I really like the way Jane Smiley writes. I didn’t connect […]

June Book Review

August 7, 2015 // monthly book review // No Comments

Timothy; or, Notes of an Abject Reptile by Verlyn Klinkenborg; read in June, 1.5 stars (out of 5) I like the idea of this book, and Klinkenborg is obviously a good writer (just mostly not my style), but I couldn’t get […]

May Book Review

August 6, 2015 // monthly book review // No Comments

Um. How does this keep happening? Why do I think I post these when I don’t? Ok, a few months late, but let’s get caught up. Once Were Warriors by Alan Duff; read/reviewed in May; 4.5 stars (out of 5) Wow, […]

April Book Review

Here we are, caught up! This Is Not It by Lynne Tillman; 1 star (out of 5) I think I’m missing something when it comes to Lynne Tillman. This is the second of her books that I’ve read, and the […]

March Book Review

April 30, 2015 // monthly book review // No Comments

Read in March but added late here: Forgive Me If I’ve Told You This Before by Karelia Stetz-Waters; 3.75 stars (out of 5) (I have a bit of a reader’s crush on this author, but I think I remained objective.) I […]

April 29, 2015 // monthly book review // No Comments

Um, so I came here to post the April book review and see that I’m kind of far behind. So, let’s spend a few days catching up. Read anything good lately? It’s not lately, but in February I read: A […]

January Book Review

February 7, 2015 // monthly book review // No Comments

This was the best month I’ve had (in terms of quantity of titles read) since I was a kid, so I had to choose between more books than usual. I’m not good at making decisions like that, but: A Streetcar […]

December Book Review

January 1, 2015 // monthly book review // No Comments

Deadwood by Pete Dexter; 3.75 (out of 5) This is my first Pete Dexter but it won’t be my last. He is a great, talented writer who brings this time period (that I could hardly have been less interested in) […]

November Book Review

December 5, 2014 // monthly book review // No Comments

Any guesses as to when I will remember to do this on time again? The Piano Tuner by Daniel Mason; 3 stars (out of 5) This one took me a while to get into, but the language and the writing […]

October Book Review

November 1, 2014 // monthly book review // No Comments

I was really hoping to be able to review the book I’m reading now but I haven’t finished it yet, so: West of Then by Tara Bray Smith; 1.75 stars (out of 5) This is a hard story, and should […]
