The Institute by Stephen King – Book Thoughts

Finally, I read a Stephen King!! One popular, mainstream and much loved author, who was on my list to read forever. And I’m glad I read this book.

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss – Book Thoughts

“One thing that struck me most about life, is the capacity for change. One day you’re a person, and the next day they tell you you’re a dog.

Two unforgettable fictional heroines – Circe and Isabel Dalhousie – Book Thoughts

The Runaways & The Kiss Quotient – Book Thoughts

I really need a good book to get me out of the two unsatisfying reads that I read last.

If I say I didn’t like a particular book, IContinue reading “The Runaways & The Kiss Quotient – Book Thoughts”
