My Bookshelf: Impacted by Benji Carr

Took a departure from my stack of women’s fiction this summer to take a bite out of Benji Carr’s Impacted (pun very much intended). First of all, I met Benji years ago at a fiction writing class we both took at the Margaret Mitchell House in Atlanta. Benji was a master of voice then andContinue reading “My Bookshelf: Impacted by Benji Carr”

My Bookshelf: Blind Turn by Cara Sue Achterberg

I was thrilled to receive a copy of Blind Turn from fellow WFWA member Cara Sue Achterberg. It was the perfect book to dive into on a cold weekend with nowhere to go (isn’t that every weekend lately? Never thought I’d actually miss those crazy weekends of kid sports and family commitments and birthday partiesContinue reading “My Bookshelf: Blind Turn by Cara Sue Achterberg”

My Book Shelf: A Good Neighborhood, Therese Anne Fowler

I read “A Good Neighborhood” by Therese Anne Fowler over the weekend. I am a big fan of Fowler’s “Z” about Zelda Fitzgerald and enjoyed “A Well Behaved Woman” about Ava Vanderbilt and her place in one of America’s wealthiest families.

High Heeled Mama Reads: Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear

I have a habit of adding books to my list to read and promptly forgetting who recommended it or where I heard about it. I believe I stumbled upon Maisie Dobbs through some sort of NPR list somewhere. But who knows. What I do know is that i added it to my to read list andContinue reading “High Heeled Mama Reads: Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear”

High Heeled Mama Reads: “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler

Welcome to the first installment of High Heeled Mama Reads. I won’t lie, I’m a bit nervous about writing a book review. Particularly when I read the book at the start of the year and have read two books since and I was half asleep on the couch the whole time I read it with aContinue reading “High Heeled Mama Reads: “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler”
