Book Review: Beautiful Little Fools by Jillian Cantor

To be totally transparent, I’ve never been a huge fan of The Great Gatsby. It was Daisy that I never could really empathize with in any way. I was intrigued with the cover of Beautiful Little Fools when I saw it on Netgalley and was a little disappointed when I realized it was a Gatsby […]

Book Review – Keanu Reeves: Most Triumphant by Alex Pappademas

As a long-time fan of Keanu Reeves I wanted to like this book so much! I’m always interested in learning a little bit more about the behind the scenes reality of my favorite movies and actors.

This debut novel, by real-life flight attendant T. J. Newman, certainly lives up to the hype. Captain Bill Hoffman is called by his boss to captain an […]

The High Crown Chronicles Character Art

For those who don’t subscribe to my newsletter or aren’t a member of The High Crown Chronicles Reading Group on Facebook I have something special for you today (okay, it’s special to me, but I thought you might like to see). Several months ago I contacted a fantastic artist and commissioned her to create character […]
