I started this one with so much enthusiasm (I have to stop doing this... it's like that moment in the movie The American President where the Michael Douglas character says to the Michael J. Fox character that he should reduce his caffeine intake by half and Michael J. Fox says that he doesn't dri...

"Broken Mirror: A psychological thriller" by Oliver Rixon is one of only a few books that I have ever read that keeps me up at night! This book stayed with me and stayed in my head and I still think about it. Usually at night when I should be sleeping. ;-)The characters are very well put together...

Amazing! I was so incredibly lucky to receieve a bound manuscript of this at TLA and have it signed by the wonderful Andrew Smith! I'm always nervous about the follow-up to really amazing books, but with this one, I just knew in my heart that Smith would get it right. He did not disappoint. I...

Prvá časť bola veľmi dobrá, ale toto... och toto bolo sklamanie. Mám dojem, že som sledovala veľmi zlú mexickú telenovelu, kde sa počas 200 dielov, v tomto prípade 200 strán, pomaly nič nedialo, len sa tam každý s každým muchloval a nevedel sa rozhodnúť s kým chce byť, pretože očividne sa všetci ...

The Minnow (2014)
3.67 of 5 Votes: 3
This is a beautifully written book about a 14-year-old girl who is having to come to grips with losing her whole family and becoming pregnant in a short period of time. There isn't much of a plot. This book is more about exploring emotions about loss and grief. Ok, now that I have that out of the...

This is a short book with a compelling and dramatic storyline, a sweet and realistic relationship between two dynamic sisters, and a call to critical thinking about Muslim women and feminism. Yet it all falls a little flat - the non-linear timeline is a little hard to keep up with, the 1st and 2n...
