  • Recent Chick Lit Reads

    In the past few weeks since my last blog post, I have been on a chick-lit rampage. I have been speed-reading through recent releases like I don't have a hundred other things to do. Laundry piled up, kitchen didn't get cleaned, and packing for my move didn't happen. These three books are part...

    Most bank/casino/vault/car heist flicks follow a pretty generic formula (see Ocean's 11, The Italian Job, Gone in 60 Seconds, et al): Protagonist decides he wants to steal something. Protagonist assembles a team of wacky miscreants, each with their own special "talents". More planning....

  • "The Third Angel" by Alice Hoffman

    Alice Hoffman has long been one of my favorite authors. But the truth is that I have grown a bit weary of the atmospheric, otherworldy touches that are entangled into every scene in every novel.
