I love all the Anne Tyler books I’ve read so far. This one was enjoyable but I wouldn’t say it’s the best. It was good but I’d probably recommend her other books before this one. It’s a book mainly about the hardships of marriage and relationships between children and family.
I am pretty sure that I can read any book by Anne Tyler and love it. Even though this book takes place probably close to 20 years ago, it’s still excellent. You’ll just notice some references are older (such as amazed when someone doesn’t have an answering machine – no mention of cell phones since… Continue reading Book Review: Digging to America by Anne Tyler
Anne Tyler can pretty much write about anything and it’ll be good! I loved this book just as much as I loved her others; loved the characters, loved the plot, loved the writing, loved the places, etc. This book is a “what if” kind of story where the main character starts to ponder what would… Continue reading Book Review: Back When We Were Grownups by Anne Tyler
I thought this book was funny – I don’t quite know if it was meant to be as funny as I thought it was! It says it is a psychological debut novel and I can understand why to some degree but really I’d just say it’s a funny, dramatic story of a 40 something year… Continue reading Book Review: We Could Be Beautiful by Swan Huntley

It starts off really slow (especially if you’re looking for any action or something to happen or anything… Continue reading Book Review: Five Nights at Freddy’s by Scott Cawthon, Kira Breed-Wrisley
I love all books by Anne Tyler; she is the kind of author who can write about anything and it’ll be a great book. This book isn’t a thriller or mystery or anything of that sort, I guess if it were a movie, it would be considered a drama. It’s about life and aging and… Continue reading Book Review: Noah’s Compass by Anne Tyler
I wouldn’t describe this book as a chilling, psychological thriller (as it says in the description). But it was a good book; it was interesting, not really a ton going on and not really a big twist at the end (which for some reason I was expecting something crazier to happen). It definitely kept me… Continue reading Book Review: The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison
