My book review of The Misremembered Man

The Misremembered ManThe Misremembered Man by Christina McKenna
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A heartwarming story of Jamie, an orphan boy, seemingly locked away forever who overcomes the hateful and sinister discipline doled out by the authorities in charge of these precious souls, each of which were dumped into a life of endless so called righteous abuse and how he comes to triumph over the past into a future that he's only dreamt about.

This surprising tale of two people who are linked from the beginning without knowing it and their misguided journey to be together with the help of friends gives a few chuckles even during one scene I actually laughed out loud and it stills brings a smile to my face.

A Box of Crayons...

Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, I'd like my crayons back, please. - Hugh MacLeod

My book review of Faithful Place

Faithful Place (Dublin Murder Squad, #3)Faithful Place by Tana French
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 STARS! Faithful Place by Tana French, set in Dublin, Ireland, captures the dynamics of a dysfunctional family with well defined characters and their personalities so that each one becomes a tale all in themselves. A decades old mystery brings together family members in a gutwrenching horrible conclusion. I will definitely read this again!

This story should be made into a movie!!!!
