Up from the Blue: A Novel
Though this book opens with Tillie in labor in 1991, the vast majority of the story takes place in 1975, the year Tillie turned eight and the year her mother was consumed by depression. Tillie doesn't …

reviewed Big Miracle. February 13, 2012
Big Miracle
I find it difficult to understand why a feel-good story about a global effort to save three whales trapped in the ice would open with an extremely graphic and quite disturbing account of a whale hunt. …

reviewed I Think I Love You. February 10, 2012
I Think I Love You
I actually expected this novel to be lighter and fluffier than it was given the subject matter- the story of a teenage crush on David Cassidy doesn't sound like it's going to be particularly deep. Once …

In the Kitchen: A Novel
Given how much I enjoyed Brick Lane, I was delighted to receive a copy this book. Unfortuately, delight soon turned to drudgery. The story was impossible to get into- none of the characters were particularly …

Come In and Cover Me
I don't know how accurate the elements of the story that touch on the Mimbres pottery and archaeology are, but they certainly read as well-researched and quite interesting. Unfortunately, to me those …

A Taste of Thai Coconut Ginger Soup Base,
This soup base does indeed make a lovely coconut ginger soup, and is much faster and easier than trying to make it from scratch. I was intrigued by the instructions for making this into a rice dish, but …

Zyrtec Liquid Gels
I've been taking allergy meds for years- being allergic to basically anything green that grows on the planet plus most household pets makes me something of an expert. I've always had better results with …

Sony ICF-C05iP Clock Radio for iPod (Black)
I bought this clock radio for my office rather than to use as an alarm clock. Basically, I fear my frantic swatting for the snooze button wouldn't be good for my iPod! As a desktop machine however, this …

TomTom XL 350TM 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator
I found this TomTom much less out-of-the box user friendly than my old Garmin Nuvi. The interface is difficult to adjust to, I couldn't easily figure out how to customize anything, and the maps often …
What Happened to Hannah: A Novel
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book which managed to stay realistic and engaging while dealing with a complicated and potentially far-fetched plot. Out of the blue Hannah gets a call from …

Remington S6600 Ultimate Styling Ceramic Hair
I have a Remington straightener that I love, so I was really excited to try out this tool that straightens and curls- how perfect for someone with limited bathroom storage space? Unfortunately, this tool …
Find Me (Kathleen Mallory Novels)
I've been working my way through the entire Kathy Mallory series after a recommendation, and have to admit that I enjoy them because the characters are so interesting; the mysteries to me are secondary. …
reviewed Before I Fall. December 15, 2011
Before I Fall
This book is young adult fiction at its best- a serious message presented as an incredibly engaging story. Sam is one of the queen bees of her high school- pretty, popular and seemingly perfect. And then …

Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman
Though the heft of this book is daunting when you first pick it up, persevere. It only takes a few pages before you lose track of time and find yourself transported into the past. I read almost half the …

I Am Half-Sick of Shadows: A Flavia de Luce Novel
This fourth novel featuring aspiring chemist-cum-sleuth Flavia De Luce is a wonderful addition to the canon with more focus on Flavia than on the murder mystery. Though the mystery of a world-famous actress …

This wonderful book tells the tale of Laura Loss who grew up in the punk rock scene in the 1980s then lost it all when that scene turned on her brother and their band. Now working in a coffee shop in …
