#Review: The Attic of Sand and Secrets by Medeia Sharif

What I liked about this book is it's sense of magic and adventure. It comes covered with a warm blanket of hopeful expectancy to solve a mystery of a missing loved-one.

#Review: The Insecure Writer's Support Group--Guide to Publishing and Beyond

Hope you're having a lovely holiday season. 

If you're an author or you're aspiring to be one, you may want to check out this book by Alex J Cavanaugh and the rest of the IWSG (which I'm happy to be a part of ) who've contributed. (I've got a piece there on magazine markets, by the way.)

#Review: Judgement Day by Jane Jensen

This was one of my Dad's books and I wished I read it sooner when he was still alive. I could have shared my thoughts with him then. Anyway, I guess it was one of his favorites. Now, it's mine, too. :-)

#Review: Palace of Darkness by Tracy L. Higley

I received a free copy of this from BookLook Bloggers. And here is my unbiased review. Please know that this is based on my own reading experience, which may or may not be similar with yours. 

This engaging tale brings you back to 106 A.D. where Cassia, who lived an impecunious and battered life with her husband, hopes to fully embrace a sense of freedom and safety for herself and her son. Her interminable hope for freedom takes her and her child to an ancient city called Petra.

#Review: A Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French

This was lent to me. Here are my thoughts about the book:

Dawn French's book is written in a 'Dear Diary' format and different voices take center stage on each chapter. As a whole, it's about a dysfunctional family--the Battles--who have their own battle to face while also struggling to live with each other. Narrated mostly by Mo (the child psychiatrist mother) and her two children, Dora and Oscar (Peter), I found this book to be refreshing and entertaining because, as a reader, it felt like being presented with a psychiatrist's notebook and getting to see the true personalities that are laid bare in its pages.
