Review: The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

This book is filled with twists and turns and I really enjoyed that part of it.  I love it when books surprise me and this book did just that.  However, throughout the majority of the book, I wasn’t all that impressed.  While I was reading, I was into it and […]

Books I’ve Added to Goodreads Lately

It seems I’m doomed to always add more books that I can ever read to Goodreads.  Since my to-read list is always growing, I thought that every once in a while I would do a round-up of books added.  Feel free to let me know what I’m failing to add […]

Full Posts or Summaries?

On a blogger’s homepage, there are one of two things happening.  Either it shows a list of full posts, or a list of summaries with a “read more” (or similar) option.  I obviously use the latter in my blog. Which one? I’m always surprised when I visit a blog that […]
