"For I Will Consider the Poet Mary Oliver"

How can I review Mary Oliver?

Being Anti-Social by Leigh K. Cunningham
Being Anti-Social
by Leigh K. Cunningham (Goodreads Author)
read in November, 2014
Rate this book
Clear rating
For a first draft, Being Anti-Social is relatively good. I can't fault Leigh Cunningham for breaking the Show-Don't-Tell rule of good writing because the more pressing rule of draft writing is to get your ideas down. That she did, along with a whole ...more

Finding Camlann

Self-Help by Lorrie Moore
Self-Help

Funny, punny, emotive, crazy (lit and fig) -- in this collection Lorrie Moore writes some mighty fine short stories. Self-Help is worth reading again and again. There is so much truth within these pages, the book could be used at a swearing in ceremo ...more

Every Secret Thing by Emma Cole
Every Secret Thing (Kate Murray, #1)

A spy thriller written by a romance writer, and it shows, but it was still an enjoyable, suspenseful read and twisted just enough to provide even this reader an unexpected ending. I wouldn't thrust this book into someone's hands with a "read it now!" ...more

The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic

Clear rating
This book is far from perfect. There are editing inconsistencies, too much repetition of minor plot points, skimpy un-fleshed-out battle scenes, and a main character who is exasperatingly passive when she should be assertive and vice versa. Neverthel ...more

Katrina Alcorn has written a realistic, gripping, page-turning tale of what it's like to navigate the minefield that is life as a working mom. Reading it felt like having a heart to heart with my most sympathetic friend. She found a way to express th ...more
