The Shell Seekers

The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher I am a huge fan of another Pilcher book, Winter Solstice.  So when I heard someone mention that she is most known for her 1987 release, The Shell Seekers, I had to check it out.

The Testaments

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood I had been looking at this book on my shelf.  I wanted to read it, but at the same time, I didn't.  Once I read it, the story will be done and I just don’t want it to end.   I loved The Handmaid’s Tale.  The story was amazing. The characters... Continue Reading →
