Women by Charles Bukowski #fiction #classics #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: In Women, Bukowski as Henry Chinaski details a life lived to excess.  From sexualizing women to excessive drinking and gambling.  Pleasing himself is his only concern.  Vulgar, rude, and crude, Chinaski is his own man. This book is repetitive beyond all get out and will get on your every nerve and yet youContinue reading “Women by Charles Bukowski #fiction #classics #bookreviewer”

Susanne’s Review: A Slow Burning Character Driven Suspenseful Crime Drama that will have you holding onto the seat of your pants! What can I say about Blacktop Wasteland that hasn’t already been said?!  The writing here is stellar and the characterizations are brilliant.   Beauregard (Bug) Montage is a character with heart.  A family man whoContinue reading “Blacktop Wasteland by S.A.

The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish @louise_candlish @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #fiction #blogtour #bookreviewers #bookbloggers

Kaceey’s Review: Jamie has taken a job somewhat below his skill set (at least his partner Clare thinks so). All the same, Jamie is happy working the cafe with not a care in the world. Well, except his commute. But that’s about to change! Jamie and Clare befriend a young couple Kit and Melia hopingContinue reading “The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish @louise_candlish @AtriaBooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #fiction #blogtour #bookreviewers #bookbloggers”

Susanne’s Review: Dysfunction that Breaks the Heart Ten Times Over.  Knowing, however, that You Can Break Free from the Chains. Ham on Rye: My first read by Charles Bukowski, came highly recommended. A semi-autobiographical coming of age story about a young man named Henry Chinaski. There is angst, desperation, dysfunction, heartache, and pain and thenContinue reading “Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski #bukowski #literature #fiction #classics #bookreviewer #bookblogger”

The Book of Magic (Practical Magic, #2) by Alice Hoffman @ahoffmanwriter @simonschuster @netgalley @edelweiss_squad #fiction #literaryfiction #magicalrealism #bookreview

Susanne’s Review: Alice Hoffman, you have surpassed my wildest expectations!   With The Book of Magic, the fourth book in the magic series, Ms. Hoffman has accomplished what I consider to be an impossible feat.  Writing a final installment, that is, in my opinion, better than all prior books in the series.   I adored The RulesContinue reading “The Book of Magic (Practical Magic, #2) by Alice Hoffman @ahoffmanwriter @simonschuster @netgalley @edelweiss_squad #fiction #literaryfiction #magicalrealism #bookreview”

Getaway by Zoje Stage #zojestage @mulhollandbooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #bookreviewers #bookbloggers

Kaceey’s Review: You know how sometimes everyone just loves an author? And though you’ve had a less than stellar previous experience you jump back in because you know for sure it will work this next time. A terminal case of FOMO.   Yes, that’s me!🙋🏻‍♀️. And as you guessed, I tried…I conquered…and no, it still didn’tContinue reading “Getaway by Zoje Stage #zojestage @mulhollandbooks @NetGalley #thriller #mystery #bookreviewers #bookbloggers”
