Book Review: The Childless Ones

In this novel of intermixing stories of reality and fantasy, Jack is our guy. He is the man whose life we follow in the reality version along with his wife's (soon-to-be-ex) life. We see both struggling in their different relationships, while also steadily overcoming their respective pasts. As for the fantasy side of the novel, we meet a variety of characters, almost as a short-story anthology, all connected at the end. We go on various journeys with different races, different magic, different purposes in mind. But all seem to bear some similarity to the real world that Jack is suffering through currently. He uses this fantasy world to cope with his reality, and it creates a surreal narrative that is an ultimate pleasure to read.

Book Review: Sugar: A Novel

In this contemporary romance, we follow the exciting life of neurotic chef Charlie Garrett. Stuck in the same job for the last several years with a cruel boss and empty promises of greatness, Charlie lucks out on a job offer from her ex-boyfriend, Avery. Little does she know, after moving cross-country from New York to Seattle, that this normal job as a chef at a high-end restaurant is also a TV gig. Is she able to juggle her newfound romance with Kai--a cook at a lovely local diner--with her chef duties and TV stardom? Or will it all unravel in her hands?

Update!

Since I've been slightly MIA with writing book reviews, I just wanted to clue you all in on what's going on with me! So, this past week, I have been taking a bit of a much-needed hiatus. What with the end of the school year coming along, both of my jobs AND my own graduate schoolwork have been steadily increasing in stress and effort/time needed. As such, I have simply been reading, and pushing my blog to the back-burner to keep my sanity! BUT here's the bright side: I have finished 4 books and am working on a fifth one now!
