Book Reviews!

Inspired by Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.

These reviews are from my Goodreads page. I’d love for you to follow me!

 

 

I heard Dan Rather on an old Howard Stern show and thought it would be interesting to read his biography. I wasn’t disappointed. Covering the assassination of JFK, Vietnam, Watergate and the Gulf War, just to name a few, Mr. Rather comes across as an authentic newsman and person. From his early days on CBS news to the time when he was asked to leave to what he is doing now, this is a great book. If you love autobiographies, and even if you don’t, I highly recommend it!

 

 

Agatha’s ex-husband is getting married again and Agatha begrudgingly attends, but the wedding is not to be as the bride is shot to death. Knowing Agatha’s reputation, the bride’s parents ask her to investigate. I took a break from reading the Agatha Raisin mystery series and was delighted to plunge back in again! This is the perfect English village mystery and Agatha is a perfectly unlikeable character. She’s not all bad actually, and I enjoy this middle-age woman ever in search of love. I’m looking forward to the next book! You may want to start with the first book in the series, Quiche of Death.

 

I hope you’ll enjoy these selections. I’d love for you to follow or friend me!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

    OH FUN! I think I’d enjoy the Rather book. I’m on Goodreads at my name: Paula Kiger. I’m not super active there but would love to connect.

      Paula, I remember you from Twitter, I don’t know if you remember me. I may have followed too many people, I don’t see your tweets any more! I added you as a friend on goodreads.

    I love autobiographies and have read a plethora of them over the years. People I enjoy and people I don’t. I always glean insight as to what makes them tick. I have not read this one yet…heading to the library’s website right now to request it 🙂

      I am not usually one for autobiographies, Christy, but I really did like this one! I hope you’ll enjoy it!

    I see Dan Rather making a return of sorts on Facebook and he’s such a breath of fresh air. You get the feeling you can really trust him.
