books are breath


A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :) 

Review: The Girls of August by Anne Rivers Siddons

The Girls of August - Anne Rivers Siddons

Definitely not my favorite by her. It did include some beautiful details about the setting, which is something I admire in all her books, since I'm from the South and she gets the smallest details just right. In this one, I didn't grow attached to any of the characters and the ending left a sour taste in my mouth. I sure hope the next book redeems her!
