Confessions of a Serial Dater by Michelle Cunnah

I’ve enjoyed another book by Michelle Cunnah called Call Waiting. Another bargain book find. Confessions of a Serial Dater was one I ordered in, but still a bargain book. She is one author on my list to check in the computer every so often for her books in bargain. Her… Read more »

The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner

The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner

I picked this up as a stripped copy at work a week or two ago. Recently, or ever since the movie The Other Boleyn Girl, I’ve began enjoying more historical fiction. This book is set in the time of Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution. It’s about a boy who… Read more »
