Review: THE PASSION OF CLEOPATRA by Anne Rice & Christopher Rice

I have been waiting for a sequel to THE MUMMY for what seems like forever. It was originally published in 1989 and I read it around the time of its release. I was so excited to see THE PASSION OF CLEOPATRA up for review. This sequel has been highly anticipated and I am sure a [...]

STATION ELEVEN by Emily St. John Mandel

In this timeless story of intertwined lives of those lost and loved, Station Eleven stands apart from everything I have read to date. It is the kind of book that I want to reread again, and again. It takes richly draw characters that speak smartly, a comic book in the middle of the end of [...]
