Children of Exile

This was my second book for ARC August, and it’s a good thing it was a quick middle grade read, because I was not impressed. When taking into account that Margaret Peterson Haddix is the author, it becomes even more depressing, because some of her earlier books remain longtime favorites of mine, including Running out of Time (1995), Leaving Fishers (1997) and Among the Hidden (1998). 885 more words

CAFE SOCIETY (2016) movie review

“Bad company corrupts good morals,” 1 Corinthians 15:33. This verse rings true, and proves much worse when all characters begin and end with the same character flaws, the same proclivities toward destruction, the same lies for personal gain, and the same old starry gazes at the way things could have been.Woody Allen offshoots from his recent run of sweet charming Paris-in-the-20s films and jumps into New York & LA in the 30s. 141 more words

Gut Reaction Review
Author: Heather Demetrios

Fair warning: I did not like this book, so everything I say is going to be tinted by that. However, if you really liked Exquisite Captive (which I was in the A- range on) you will likely enjoy this book just as much. 856 more words
