The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion - spoiler free! - this book is an ebook ARC from NetGalley I read The Rosie Project not too long ago, which left me incredibly excited for Simsion’s latest novel.

The Reviewing Reel: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

No Spoilers! I'm very lucky to be a part of a group that sends advance copies of books you want to read - that is if you email back quickly enough.

I Can’t – 11/9/16

"It's simple. I can't." A raised eyebrow, a slight twitch at the corner of the mouth. They sighed heavily, shaking their head before their hands snapped the folder shut, the sound of metal clinking against metal ringing in his ears. "I don't think you understand," they said, again, in a menacingly quiet tone. "This isn't… Continue reading I Can’t – 11/9/16
