Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson Book Review

Reason for Reading This Book: Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson was recommended to me by my mother. She was reading this book at the time and asked if I was in need of a recommendation and I was. She said it was not a fantastic book but would be a good filler book while I wait for other books I was on the waitlist for. Before I checked it out my mom did give me a short description of the book and it seemed interesting. I also love when we read the same book because then we can talk about them once we both finish. Around the time I started the book my mom texted me to tell me she stayed up later to finish it. This gave me an idea that the plot was captivating.   Content of This Book: Malcom Kershaw is a mystery book seller and owner of Old Devils Bookstore in Boston. Years ago when he first started at the bookstore he complied a list of eight books that in his opinion depict 'perfect' murders. The unsolvable murders are those that are almost impossible to solve.

The Reading List by Sara Nisha Admas Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: I listened to an episode of  House Guest with Kenzie Elizabeth  where Kenzie, Margo and Emily answered a series of questions about the books they have read.

Aleisha is not a reader and this becomes an issue when she is asked by library patron Muskesh for a book recommendation. Lucky for her she recently found a li

Summer Sisters by Judy Blume Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: I listened to an episode of House Guest with Kenzie Elizabeth  where Kenzie, Margo and Emily answered a series of questions about the books they have read. One of the books discussed was Summer Sisters by Judy Blume . Even though I listened to this episode a while ago I didn't get around to reading the book until recently. Summer Sisters piqued my interest not only because of the author but because of the praise given to it in the episode. I read Judy Blume growing up and was excited about the idea of reading one of her adult books.  Content of This Book: While working in her Manhattan office, Victoria Leonard answers the phone and on the other line is Caitlin, her oldest friend who she hasn't spoken to in months. Caitlin breaks news to Vix that takes her breath away--and Vix is transported back in time to when she met Caitlin and was swept into the Somers family, their world of privilege, summer adventures and sexual exploration. The bond formed
