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. . They are mostly Women’s fiction and mysteries in books because that’s what I read now. I look at all types of movies and TV shows, particularly British mysteries and dramas. But as far as reviews are concerned I generally limit those to very light small screen fare where my thoughts don’t get lost in the shuffle among hundreds of other reviews. 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.

We meet her family who also loves Scott. Sometimes you just get tired of two strangers meeting cute and going through the old enemies-to-lovers thing. Natalie is a perfectionist … Continue reading Our Dream Wedding
