The Compulsive Move by Philip Cornell (Book Review #82)

This review is written for Online Book Club “I rate this book 2 out of 4 stars.” The Compulsive Move is a book written about a boy named Kevin. From the beginning of the book, I noticed something different. The way the story is told is through a third person but in a very weird way. The third person speaks about the story using terms like “Do you know what I mean?”, “As you can see” or “Don’t get me wrong.” The []

The Grand by Dennis D. Wilson (Book Review #81)

This review is written for Online Book Club “I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.” The story is explained in several perspective angles and then brought together for the final reveal.

Pearl, MD: The Way West by Marie Bartlett (Book Review #73)

The way of the West begins right where we were left off. Pearl is a physician in the nineteenth-century society. This was when women were not welcome to have a profession. African Americans are also treated poorly. Healing them as a patient is unacceptable and hiring them as an assistant is profound upon and bad for business.

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer (Book Review #8)

  Summary “The enchantment continues… The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories—and secrets—that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic. How did Cinder first arrive in New Beijing?
