Karl Geary's prose is a thing of beauty
Montpelier Parade - Karl Geary

The prose within Montpelier Parade is itself a thing of beauty – and for that alone I would recommend this novel. But it is Geary’s characters’ capacity to be buoyed by glints in darkness and this story’s moving denouement that elevate it to the truly memorable. One of our Top Reads of 2017.

Review:

"Charge" by E. L. Todd

My Thoughts..

This was another amazingly good read by this author. You will be able to tell this will be another series that will keep you turning the pages to see what is up between Volt and Taylor. There are a few other characters that will keep your attention that helps give this story a well developed plot. I can't wait to see what will happen when Taylor finds out about her two best friends. I will leave it at that and just say "Charge' ends with a cliffhanger so we will have to pick up the next series...'Spark' to find out more about this delicious story.

Cat's Eye - Margaret Atwood

Some twenty years have passed since painter Elaine Risley left Toronto, Canada. Now she is back for a retrospective exhibition of her work and memories of childhood and youth flood her mind. Many of them are one way or another related to her "best friend" Cordelia who bullied her in primary school until she lost her power over Elaine when she almost froze to death in a ravine. Although she almost forgot those difficult years, they had a lasting impact on her life... and her painting.
