Book Review: The Memory Book

The Memory Book by Lara Avery was a Barnes and Noble find. Honestly, I could get lost in that store. And so could any resemblance of good money management. When I skimmed the back cover of this book, however, I knew I had to get it. The premise was fascinating, and became even more fascinating... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Time Traveler’s Wife

My initial impression review on Goodreads of The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger was this: "This book is elegant, odd, beautiful, heartbreaking, and mournful all at once."
