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! Right off the bat, you realize that this new society in New Canaan is something different and there are people who Know and they are different and special and never forget. It sort […]

Why Did I Read? I had heard a lot of early praise for it from some fellow bloggers! I was intrigued! My Thoughts: I really like historical fiction and this was such a fun filled romp with Monty and this friends! I like to think of it as… a 17th century spin on the movie Eurotrip with a more serious note. (Has anyone else seen that movie? It’s hilarious, a bit ridiculous but lots of fun […]
