Chasing Carpet Lines

I can remember being jealous of my friends whose houses were always pristine. Who's sinks were never full, laundry always done, yard perfectly kept, and especially those with perfectly rectangular carpet lines drawn across their floors.

The Joy Luck Club (Review)

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan My rating: 5 of 5 stars The Joy Luck Club was my first encounter with Amy Tan and I’m sure I’m not alone on that one. I came across it in a college course. Because the novel is long and the class was only 8 weeks, we were… Continue reading The Joy Luck Club (Review)

There were some beautiful moments… Continue reading She’s Come Undone (Review)


School for Psychics (Review)

School for Psychics by K.C. Archer My rating: 3 of 5 stars This was another request from NetGalley and I believe an Instagram pick. I heard great reviews on it and it sounded interesting, but in the end, it wasn’t exactly what I had expected. I jumped into this book thinking it was a more… Continue reading School for Psychics (Review)
