Review: The Knowing by Sharon Cameron

Why Did I Read? I loved The Forgetting and was ecstatic to learn that there would be a companion novel! My Thoughts: The Knowing takes place hundreds of years after the events of The Forgetting and there have been a lot of things happening since then!

Audiobook Mini Reviews: The Secret Life of Violet Grant, Tiny Little Thing and Rose Under Fire

My Thoughts: This was my first introduction to this author and I definitely want to read the rest of her backlist!

We follow Vivian Schuyler as she strives to earn a place as a journalist for the Metropolitan magazine and she receives a mysterious briefcase in the mail. It turns out it belonged to her aunt, Violet Grant, […]
