Calculated in Death by J. D. Robb
Calculated in Death

cccleveland, August 6, 2013

Though a very good book the ending was a let down. Robb deviates from the behaviorisms we have learned to love and expect from the main character turning what was, in my opinion a five star read into a four star read with just a few pages. It felt rushed and not altogether thought out. That said the book still deserves four stars for the suspense, the laughs, and interesting plot line.

Love Child by Sheila Kohler
Love Child

cccleveland, August 5, 2013

Interesting but difficult to get in to. Once I became fully engaged in the story and the main character, the story shifted into a storyline that was less intriguing. Though not one of my favorites it is still worth reading, especially while sitting poolside.

The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
The Glass Room

cccleveland, May 26, 2013

One of the best books I have ever read, if not the very best. This book makes you feel a gauntlet of emotions. Though a fairly quick read you cannot give up on the book. At times I felt the book to progress rather slowly; but, looking back on it now I feel as though this feeling was due to my own preconceived perception of how the book would progress. Now I feel every word was there for a reason.

The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity Is Hurting Young Women

cccleveland, May 11, 2013

Excellent read that opens your mind to the extent in which virginity is being used to keep women "in their place".

A well developed, critical analysis of policies affecting welfare mothers and ideologies used to demean, criticize and belittle mothers on assistance.
