Big Law was written by a lawyer. A lawyer who tried his hand at writing. And failed. Ok, maybe “failed” is a bit strong. It’s not that Big Law is unreadable or anything, but at times it comes close. Continue reading “Big Law by Ron Liebman”
I recently re-read Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. It’s admittedly a saptastic cry-fest, but I loved it. Yeah, it had romance, but it was good, proving that “romance” and “good” can coexist. Lulled into this false sense of security, I decided to try out Nicholas Sparks’ The Choice. The novel was recently made into a movie – as all Nicholas Sparks books are – and the previews are catered towards people that enjoy crying. Looking for a good cry myself, I certainly found it in The Choice, but not for the reasons I was hoping. I cried because of this sixth sense I have that enables me to constantly locate the worst books ever written. Continue reading “The Choice by Nicholas Sparks”
The day is almost here. The day I’ve been awaiting for months and months and months. This Monday, 11/22/63 debuts on Hulu. I finished the novel for the second time last night, so I am fully prepared and cautiously optimistic that James Franco won’t ruin it. I’m also scared, as this mini-series will be treading on sacred ground. Stephen King is my favorite author, and 11/22/63 just so happens to be one of my favorite books of all time. That’s a lot of “favorites” in one sentence. Therefore, if JJ Abrams desecrates the book with the show, I will be very loudly airing my grievances here.

I could not get into this book at all. I tried and tried and tried, and by then I was halfway through, so I begrudgingly dragged myself through the rest of it. Continue reading “The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Potzsch”
As readers, we all know the euphoria of one-more-chapter books. These glorious novels have been few and far between for me in recent years, so when I find one, I treasure it. The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is Stephen King’s latest collection of short stories. I may be a tad bit biased, since Stephen King is my spirit animal. That being said, Bazaar left me spending many nights chasing after that elusive last chapter. Continue reading “The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King”
Hello out there!! This week’s review is another stunning collaboration with my Bestie @Sarindre, of the fabulously awesome Geeks and Geeklets (http://geeksandgeeklets.com/).
After a fairly extensive discussion, Trey and I determined that the only thing worth discussing in regards to Life and Death is the cover art.
I am so over kidnap-and-torture-women books. Seriously. Why can’t anyone ever kidnap a guy and lock him in the basement or a barn or [insert scary isolated place here].Karin Slaughter’s Pretty Girls doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Actually, it doesn’t bring anything to the table other than gory descriptions of captive women being abused and humiliated, all the while being recorded for a snuff tape site.
