Why should I be surprised?  After all, Aunt Lydia is terrifying and she has more power than anyone else.   InContinue reading “The Testaments by Margaret Atwood @MargaretAtwood #dystopia #gilead #pearlgirls #handmaidstale #fiction #bookreview”

You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley #fiction #contemporaryfiction #bookreview

Susanne’s Review: “You Were There Too” left me feeling little until the very end and THEN finally, a tear escaped. A Case of Too Little Too Late. When a novel drags on with a storyline that seemed wholly far-fetched, such that I almost dnf’d it several times but kept on, and felt absolutely nothing untilContinue reading “You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley #fiction #contemporaryfiction #bookreview”

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”
