The Testaments by Margaret Atwood @MargaretAtwood #dystopia #gilead #pearlgirls #handmaidstale #fiction #bookreview

Susanne’s Review: A Return to Gilead in “The Testaments”: It’s both Insightful and Frightening and it takes place 15 years after “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Who holds the power in Gilead?  It’s the Aunts of course!

The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead @colsonwhitehead #fiction #historical fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer

Susanne’s Review: Utterly Gut-Wrenching! A fictitious novel about a real reformatory school in Florida that existed in the Jim Crow era, “The Nickel Boys” broke my heart.  I think perhaps it broke the heart of everyone who read this book before me and I will hazard a guess that it will break the hearts ofContinue reading “The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead @colsonwhitehead #fiction #historical fiction #literaryfiction #bookreviewer”

Cherish by Tracey Garvis Graves @tgarvisgraves #fiction #romance #audiobooks #bookreview

Susanne’s Review: Swoon-Worthy Detective Daniel Rush from “Covet” gets his own story and it’s a doozy!  At the tail end of “Covet,” Detective Daniel Rush was shot and readers are left wondering what happened to him.  To say that gave me heart palpitations is an understatement!  (He was after all the best part of thatContinue reading “Cherish by Tracey Garvis Graves @tgarvisgraves #fiction #romance #audiobooks #bookreview”
