Review: A Love Hate Thing

January 13, 2020

Flannery O’Connor: Queen of One-Liners

October 31, 2019

Flannery O’Connor really is a fiction-writing queen, and she’s great for celebrating on Halloween. Her short stories — like “A Good Man is Hard to Find” and “Revelation” — are creepy and violent and full of zingers. If you’ve never read one of her short stories, I definitely recommend the ones above (they’re perfect for […]

September 18, 2019

Another day, another NetGalley review. This one is for We Met in December by Rosie Curtis. Plot twist, though: It’s already published! You won’t even have to wait to run and get it at a bookstore. Which you actually might still be on the fence about after reading this review. I could really give or […]
