The Marriage Pact

I enjoy a good cult story. I thought The Sixes by Kate White was a great read – actually, that novel prompted me to read all of White’s books back to back. To be honest, as soon as I started reading The Marriage Pact, I didn’t really know where it was going. It started outContinue reading “The Marriage Pact”

The Last Thing He Told Me

I had a stepfather once. It was awful. Which is why this book felt so relatable – in part – and also hard to get through. The summer I was eight years old, my granny died and we abruptly moved into a new house with my mom’s soon-to-be husband. At the time, it was aContinue reading “The Last Thing He Told Me”

WARNING: This review has spoilers.

I was NOT havingContinue reading “Behind Her Eyes”

Kind of like a funhouse room of mirrors or one of those pitch black Halloween mazes. I was ableContinue reading “Too Good to be True”

The full account of Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes is so intriguing and unfathomable to me and I really went down a rabbit hole with everything. Not for the first time, it made me wonder if my calling should be in investigative journalism instead of marketing. I was entirely impressed with the work ofContinue reading “The Rise & Fall of Theranos”

Anxious People

Contemporary fiction is not really my jam. I’ll read it, but it takes a while; I can’t blow through it like I would say, T.M. Logan’s The Vacation. I thought I’d give Fredrik Blackman’s Anxious People a try because it sounded interesting/funny and received a lot of praise. About 37 pages in, I started toContinue reading “Anxious People”
