The Night Portrait: A Novel of World War II and Da Vinci’s Italy by Laura Morelli

Reading this book was such a treat for me! There are a few paintings I wish to see in person one day, and Leonardo da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine is on that list. This painting, which is a portrait of Cecilia Gallerani, a mistress of Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, is my favorite out […]

The Killings at Kingfisher Hill by Sophie Hannah

This year marked the 130th birthday of Agatha Christie, and to coincide with her birthday, William Morrow published the fourth installment of the New Hercule Poirot Mysteries written by Sophie Hannah. I usually avoid series that get continued after the death of the original author, but I made an exception for this as my friends […]

Philip’s father Senator Jim Martin, up for reelection, is a popular politician who has represented Arizona in the congress for many years. And even […]

The A.B.C. Murders by Agatha Christie (Book Vs. TV)

The Gown: A Novel of the Royal Wedding by Jennifer Robson

I was beyond thrilled to receive an ARC of Jennifer Robson’s The Gown. I’ve mentioned how much I love The Crown TV show before, so a novel featuring the women who made Queen Elizabeth’s wedding gown sounded like it’ll be right up my alley! The Gown begins by taking its readers to post-WWII England. The […]

The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn

I was a bit afraid of reading The Woman in the Window at first. Most reviewers had said The Woman in the Window is something between The Girl on the Train and The Woman in Cabin 10 – two thrillers I didn’t enjoy much – so I didn’t have high hopes for it. But when […]

Under the Influence by Joyce Maynard

Joyce Maynard is not an entirely new author to me. While I have not read any of her books before, I have watched the film adaptation of Labor Day. I am not sure if it remains faithful to the book, but I enjoyed the plot in Labor Day, and that made me interested in Joyce Maynard’s books. In Joyce […]
