3.5 Stars. “Do ghosts drink tea?”“They don’t,” said Tansey. “But this ghost would love to see a cup of tea in front of her. It’d be lovely.” This book was so sweet. I know that sounds like an “Oh God, what can I call this book? Quick gimme a word, gimme! Ahh, sweet will do” but it really isn’t. It Leggi tutto

Il concept del romanzo non è certo una novità: da Ghost a Ghost Whisperer la storia del fantasma che torna per chiudere un conto in sospeso ci è già stata raccontata in tutte le salse. A fare la differenza in questo caso è l’autore: Doyle è bravissimo. Stile scorrevole e una scrittura intrisa di que Leggi tutto
Moglo je bolje. Moralo je bolje. Najveći problem je što autor nikako nije mogao da se dogovori sam sa sobom: da li piše za decu ili odrasle? Ravna linija.

It is also a story about growing up, letting go and losing the ones you love. Not often do I read a book in one day, but the fact that I read th Leggi tutto

"A Greyhound of a Girl" was definitely one of those stories that I think has a sweet, slice-of-life, remembrance theme to it, though I'm not sure if it didn't appeal to me as much because of the multiple perspectives it was written in, or if it was something about the structure/flow of the writing t Leggi tutto
