Podcast Review: Death By Unknown Event by Pamela Adlon

This is so wild - every time I thought I'd gotten to the worst part, it took another turn. I listen to a lot of podcasts - in all kinds of genres. Some of my favorites are No Such Thing As A Fish, Twenty Thousand Hertz, Lore, Vanished, and Serial - amongst others. And since... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Dancing At Midnight by Rebecca Graves

Dancing At Midnight is the heartbreaking tale of a Carolyn, a young woman who comes home to deal with the death of her mother, June Parker - and the estate she has left behind - only to discover the painful, untold truth about her June's early life. This is very different from what I usually... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Frozen in Time – The Fate of The Franklin Expedition by Owen Beattie

The horrifying truth about a most terrifying historical event - the loss of the 129 men of the Franklin Expedition who perished in the Canadian Arctic in 1848. I don't read enough non-fiction, unfortunately. I always end up loving it when I do, and I try to always intersperse my reading with a few books... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Gerald’s Game by Stephen King

In many ways this is the scariest King book I've ever read. The plot of Gerald's Game is simple: Jessie and Gerald Burlingame go away for the weekend to their cabin in the woods. During some raunchy foreplay where Jessie gets handcuffed to the bed, Gerald dies from a heart attack. You know how it... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie

The very definition of a murder mystery! I'm sure if you looked up mystery in the dictionary, you'd find Agatha Christie there, if not this exact novel as an example. I grew up watching David Suchet's version of Poirot and though I don't even remember which ones I've seen, I remember loving them. It was... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The City and the Stars by Arthur C. Clarke

One of the fathers of modern science fiction - and a definite must-read! When I started this I was worried I would find it much the same way I found Dune - boring and overlong - but this was the complete opposite. Every part of this novel made me want to keep on reading, keep... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Never, ever, read this book. Here's a fun fact: we don't have required reading in Norway (at least we didn't in the 90's where I grew up). That's not to say I didn't have to read things, I just didn't have to read loads of old books from some arbitrary, outdated list. But I'm trying... Continue Reading →
