George’s Marvellous Medicine–Roald Dahl

Sigh. Here’s another interesting book by Roald Dahl. And wildly inappropriate for a kid. I have to keep reminding myself that these are not meant for Daryl’s age group (Being 3 years old.) . That they are meant for older kids. But I also…

The Dollhouse–The Kardashians

Judge me if you will but I have a sick curiosity about books written not just by celebrities but collaborations. How do three people write a novel? A better question would be: How much did these three women really contribute to this book? I’m…

Shutter Island–Dennis Lehane

Man oh man. This guy is a genius. And if I had any money leftover from my last paycheck I would go and buy all of his books. I had no idea what I was getting myself into with this book.  I had seen…
