Review: Just as good if not better then the first. I only have one complaint..... Blake! I wish Kay was so stupid when it comes to him. I hate that they still have a relationship of sorts so hopefully in fake they won't!! Read more
Review: I read Anna Quindlen's Every Last One with a little bit of hesitation -- I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book since I was one of the few people who wasn't the biggest fan for Quindlen's very popular book, Rise and Shine. I know, I know. I was one of "them."
Last weekend, I was on another flight coming back from Boston and I had just finished Raven Stole the Moon. I closed that book on the flight and thank goodness, I had Every Last One in my carry-on bag. Most of you all know th... Read more
Review: I confess with not a little pride that I was a Lorrie Moore 'early adopter', having bought her first collection of stories way back when. I liked them so much I went on to buy her second collection too.

Review: What a delightful read this was! A friend gave it to me, and despite the fact that I usually seek out Persephone Classics, I was skipping this one..maybe the movie trailer I saw in the theater once turned me off, or maybe I just didn't understand what it was about. And on that score I'm not sure I'm going to be able to explain it very well! Miss Pettigrew, a governess and not a very good one, is in deep financial straights and is mistakenly sent to seek employment to a young lady named Delysia.... Read more
Review: I started this book on my lunch break and finish before bedtime, it was one I couldn’t put down and had to know what happened next. Emily and Damon’s story was pretty much every other story about Dom/sub but this one was gripping and letting you in on their whole story following Every movement, every desire, every hurdle for both of them completed. Can’t wait to read the next one Read more
