Book Review: Bleak House by Charles Dickens

Bleak House - Charles Dickens (W.W. Norton & Co, 1977) A 500+ page book with a focus on an obscure aspect of 19th century British law doesn't exactly sound gripping and yet Dickens brings it all to life in a story filled with humour and emotion. In many ways, all of Dickens' best elements are… Continue reading Book Review: Bleak House by Charles Dickens

Book Review: The Man Who Saw Everything by Deborah Levy

The Man Who Say Everything - Deborah Levy (Hamish Hamilton, 2019) It's hard to know how to talk about this book. Divided into two parts, there is a sort of reveal halfway through and that becomes clearer as the book progresses to the end that makes it clear what this book is about and what… Continue reading Book Review: The Man Who Saw Everything by Deborah Levy

The Man in the High Castle - Philip K. Dick (Mariner Books, 2011) While I found Philip K. Dick's work of post-war speculative fiction interesting, I can't quite say that I enjoyed it.

Book Review: Introverted Mom by Jamie C. Martin

Introverted Mom - Jamie C. Martin (Zonderan, 2019) When I saw this book sitting on my sister-in-law's coffee table my immediate thought was, "That's me!" My sister-in-law clearly agrees but she immediately loaned me the book. Being an introvert serves me well as a mom in a lot of ways but it does make other… Continue reading Book Review: Introverted Mom by Jamie C. Martin
