#BookReview Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is a unique read that really had me hooked. So, first things first… This book can definitely be labelled as "problematic". We have a woman who has experienced some intense trauma (and might have Autism or Asperger's), and doesn't seem to be the most accurate portrayal of this. Now, we… Continue reading #BookReview Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

#BookReview Stay Hungry by Sebastian Maniscalco

I love Sebastian Maniscalco's stand-up. It's fun, hilarious and is far too relatable sometimes. I have family members who are Italian, so seeing Sebastian do spot on impressions of my family really makes me smile. Before the pandemic started, I had bought tickets to one of his shows. Unfortunately, I've never had the chance since… Continue reading #BookReview Stay Hungry by Sebastian Maniscalco

#BookReview No Cure For Love by Victoria Grant

Little known fact about me: I grew up watching soap operas. Two in particular: Coronation Street and General Hospital. My Dad was from England, so Coronation Street was basically law to watch. We couldn't miss an episode! My Mom liked General Hospital and got me into it, which I ended up watching every day after… Continue reading #BookReview No Cure For Love by Victoria Grant

#BookReview Arctic Meltdown by Geza Tatrallyay

Geza Tatrallyay is at it again with another fantastic read! Arctic Meltdown is an excellent book to pick up if you love history and mystery.
