The Silkworm- Robert Galbraith (J.K.Rowling) Review (Spoilers)

I was excited when I found out that Robert Galbraith was writing another Cormoran Strike novel. I had thought that Cuckoo’s Calling was a single book, not part of a series.

Anderson- Review- (Spoilers)”

World War Z by Max Brooks- A Review

I picked up World War Z for really only one reason, zombies. The idea of a zombie apocalypse has become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon recently.

There are many different takes on whatContinue reading “World War Z by Max Brooks- A Review”

Cuckoo’s Calling Review- Robert Galbrath (J.K. Rowling)

I picked up The Cuckoo’s Calling because I love J.K. Rowling. As soon as I heard of her “secret” book I knew I had to read it. She is that one author I will read anything from, no matter the subject matter or style of writing. Traditional detective novels have never been my favorite genreContinue reading “Cuckoo’s Calling Review- Robert Galbrath (J.K. Rowling)”

Night Circus- Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus was recommended to me by a very good friend of mine. She believed my taste for the eccentric and the fantastic would be very well satisfied by this story.
