Snap Cackle and Pop is the first and only novel from Carol Kearney, a woman who has battled through so much in order to see her dream of writing a book come true. It’s not often I feel humbled like this, but if you have read the book and know Carol’s story, then you would be too.
There is something about a chick-lit novel in the summer, isn’t there? Ok, summer is nearly over but it doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy a good read. Especially all my fellow parents who have their spawn heading back to school (whoah! Free time to ourselves to pee in peace!) So let’s kick back with a cup of coffee and have a look at a new book, Follow Me Home by Jen Benjamin.
Hitting the Black Wall is a book that I never thought I would end up reviewing, mainly because it is a poetry book. Poetry is one of those things that people will love or loathe. And having known a few poets in my time, the torture that comes from writing poetry is something that can’t be imagined. There is a saying/story about poets spending all morning decided if a comma should be placed at the end of a sentence, then to spend all afternoon agonizing whether it should be removed.
