Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee

When I first heard that HarperCollins was releasing what people were calling a “sequel” of sorts to Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird, I was skeptical. Who wasn’t?

I love the middle one with its creepy house and bloody tree.  Gillian Flynn is pretty hot right now. She’s aContinue reading “Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn”
