Just a gathering

of my book

and movie reviews

from recent years.

These are my Book and Movie reviews I have written for Goodreads, Amazon, and IMDb. I will try to add a few every day. They are mostly Women’s fiction and mysteries in books, because that’s what I read now. In movies, I usually only review TV movies, where my thoughts don’t get lost in the shuffle among hundreds of others. Most of what I read and watch have one thing in common: They have upbeat hopeful endings with justice prevailing and closure achieved. Call me crazy.

How to Capture a Countess

by Karen Hawkins “Financial standing, a social position beyond what she has now, and a husband to dote upon her every wish. What more could she ask for?” “Maybe youth. Vigor. Teeth.” “Lord Cameron has his own teeth.” Margaret narrowed her eyes at the other candidate. “I’m not so certain about Munro. They seemed somewhat clacky … Continue reading How to Capture a Countess

Matchmaker Santa

Meh. Reliable Lacey just didn’t do it for me in this one. This movie was made 8 years ago and Lacey Chabert hasn’t changed a bit. And I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Same hairdo, same lipstick, same signature eyeliner. Honestly, couldn’t she even wash her face before going to bed? On the other … Continue reading Matchmaker Santa
