Review: Hush Hush, Laura Lippman

I never would have picked a book about a mother who kills her infant daughter by leaving her in a hot car. I never would want to read a book about something so unfathomable to most people. The good news is that this book isn't just about the crime. Hush Hush is about a Baltimore … Continue reading Review: Hush Hush, Laura Lippman

Review: Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

When the internet is plastered with quotes from a book, you know it must be good. I have wanted to read The Perks of Being a Wallflower for years, and I'm so excited I finally finished it.

There's even a questionable substance that got stuck between two pages (I'm pretty sure it's the remnants of an M&M). Anyways, … Continue reading Review: Ally Carter, I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You

Review: Carrie Fisher, Wishful Drinking

It's important to understand icons we've lost. Carrie Fisher, better known as Princess Leia, or Debbie Reynold's daughter, tells it like it is in her memoir, Wishful Drinking. Her raunchy language and blunt descriptions lead the reader in all different kinds of directions. She doesn't skirt around the horrible events of her life; instead, she … Continue reading Review: Carrie Fisher, Wishful Drinking
