Book Review: The Temporary Gentleman by Sebastian Barry
It seems as if Mr. Barry put great thought into the narrative of this book. Each of us, I’m sure, can go back and point to events which, in our opinion, were either a turning point or crossroads in our linear path even though we did not know it at the time – this is what McNulty is writing about.

There are a lot of “don’ts” when it comes to writing– certain newbie-writer mistakes that will automatically flag your work as that of a first-timer. These include starting a scene with...

Adovia Dead Sea Mud Mask Review
Adovia Mineral Skin Care is made in Israel with minerals from the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea differs from oceans in many ways. It has a much higher salt content but it also has a much lower sodium chloride measurement.  For normal ocean water, 85 percent of the salt is sodium chloride while the Dead Sea salt is measured to only have 2.5 percent sodium chloride.  This means more of other minerals since there is less sodium chloride.

review: my life in middlemarch by rebecca mead
As the book is titled My Life in Middlemarch, I expected Rebecca Mead to include far more about her own life. The book instead focuses primarily on Mary Ann Evans who wrote Middlemarch under the name George Eliot. There's much here about parallels between the works of Eliot and the author's life which may have inspired the novels. Although it's an interesting and well-researched biography, I hoped to read more of Mead. I did appreciate her insights though. My biggest takeaway came from the ... [read more]
