review: the purest hook

The Purest Hook by Scarlett Cole (2017) I have found a new author to add to my list of favorites, and her name is Scarlett Cole. Look. The Purest Hook is packed with loads of dramatic tension and I was tense the whole time I was reading. I can only admire a book that evokes... Continue Reading →

review: the phantom of the opera

The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux (1909) This book has been sitting in my to-be-read pile for quite a long time.  I have not seen any adaptations of the novel, but I have wanted to see the Broadway musical for a long, long time.  When I picked up the book a week ago... Continue Reading →

review: high fidelity

High Fidelity by Nick Hornby (1995) An intriguing fun fact: High Fidelity is a first novel.  I read Juliet, Naked last year and thought it was okay but not great, and got about halfway through A Long Way Down before putting it down and never picking it back up.  I have wanted to love a...

review: a scanner darkly

A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick (1977) It’s taken me some time to write this review.  I like to start these reviews by giving a brief synopsis of the novel, but getting down in one short paragraph what this novel is about has been a challenge.  A Scanner Darkly follows the story of Fred,...
