Book Review: A Distant Shore by Karen Kingsbury

There has not been a book from Kingsbury that did not feature the Baxter family since Brush of Wings, which released in 2017. I have been hoping for a Kingsbury stand alone for a long time. That time is finally here. Continue reading “Book Review: A Distant Shore by Karen Kingsbury”

Book Review: A Dog’s Courage by W. Bruce Cameron

Book Review: WIN by Harlan Coben

Windsor Horne Lockwood III – his friends call him Win, and even they would be pressed to accurately describe this man. I first met Win in Coben’s Myron Bolitar series and loved his character.

Book Review: The Children’s Blizzard by Melanie Benjamin

The Children’s Blizzard is based on actual oral histories of survivors of the January 12, 1888 Dakota Territory blizzard. This was a book that I expected to sucker punch me with emotion. However, it did not grip me as emotionally as I expected. Continue reading “Book Review: The Children’s Blizzard by Melanie Benjamin”

Turning the Page to 2021

As we say good riddance to the year that, at times, seemed like it would never end, we’d like to take a minute to share some of our favorite reads of 2020 and a bit of what we’re looking forward to reading in 2021.

While 2020 wasn’t the year anyone wanted to be, for the Bookish Ladies, it wasn’t a total loss since we did get to read some pretty good books.
