Review: Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Jill Mansell
It was unbelievable.  You could actually see it happening.  One minute he was completely and utterly entranced.  Before long, as if the momentousness of the occasion had made its presence felt, the newest addition to the family stirred and opened her eyes. “Her name is Delphi,” said Laura. “Oh my God.”  Dex exhaled slowly.  “Look […] [read more]

Review: The Moonlight Palace by Liz Rosenberg
In the 1920s, Singapore was under British colonial rule and was surprisingly cosmopolitan. It experienced a financial boom between the two world wars, just as the Western world did. It had vibrant communities made up of various different nationalities: Indians, Straits Chinese, and British.  Some of the unrest in neighboring China found its way into the equatorial island country. It is at this time and in this period of relative calm that Liz Rosenberg's short novel, The Moonlight Palace, ... [read more]

Review: Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker
First thanks to Edelweiss and HarperTeen for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I have to say I enjoyed another pretty original YA story.  I'm glad to be reading books that are not the same old repeat of a YA dystopia or paranormal romance or vampire story, etc.  It's nice to find something that is so refreshingly new, or at least different.

The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy - Rachel Joyce
I am often asked - who is your favourite author? Well, it's hard to narrow it down to just one. But, the books that stay with me long after the last page are the ones that move me, that make me laugh, make me cry and make me think. Stories about people. Rachel Joyce writes extraordinary stories. And yes, she is one of my favourite authors. [read more]

Switching Time by Richard Baer
I have a big fascination with Multiple Personality Disorder (now called Dissociative Identity Disorder). It started with reading Sidney Sheldon's Tell Me Your Dreams, in which a woman has three alters and since this is Sidney Sheldon, there's a lot of sex and damaged woman issues. Then there was an Indian movie, Anniyan, that tackled this issue. The movie was a success but it was more entertaining and less informative about the illness. I've read that book and watched the movie multiple time ... [read more]

The Gory Legend of Hull House
There was a huge surge of horror movies starting with the slasher classic John Carpenter's Halloween in 1978 and continued throughout the '80s, though the popularity started to wind down towards the'90s. Once of the last classic horror films from that era was 1988's Night of the Demons (originally titled Halloween Party.) The film was directed by Kevin S. Tenney and starred William Gallo, Hal Havins, Amelia Kinkade, Cathy Podewell and Linnea Quigley. The film centered on a group of te ... [read more]

review: the barter by siobhan adcock
I went into Siobhan Adcock’s The Barter expecting a chilling ghost story with the mother in the present day trying desperately to protect her baby, but that’s not what this story is at all. Bridget’s primary storyline is pretty ho-hum—a woman who gave up her career to raise her baby feels the conversation of the other moms isn’t stimulating enough. The other storyline, which is set a century earlier, was of more interest as Rebecca finds it difficult to go from doctor’s daughter to farmer’ ... [read more]

Tuesday Intros: Bodies of Light by Sarah Moss
" 'Elizabeth is in the drawing room,'Mary tells him.'Mamma has been having another little chat.'

At the other end of the hall, the door into the garden is open, and as he reaches to put his hat on the hatstand a breeze lifts the letters on the tray and the front door slams. He likes that, the way houses breathe, the way things move. The door on his left opens and Elizabeth looks around it. [read more]
