  • Review: For the Love of the South

  • Currently reading It

    The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years—if it ever did end—began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain. I’m not a fan of King’s politics or the hateful things that he has said, but I […]

  • Review: Mooseletoe

    Mooseletoe by Tiffinie Helmer My rating: 3 of 5 stars Romantic comedies are not my thing, but I wanted to try something new for the Christmas holiday. I thought Mooseletoe was a fun read.
