Review: Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History

Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History by Maureen Orth
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

oooh this one is sick and twisted. I remember watching tv during all of these events and I tried to make sense out of what this guy was thinking. This book only left a few answers since Andrew seemed to left no answers in his wake. The sheer magnitude of his evilness towards people he said he was friends with, admired and one (possibly two) that he never even met...is just surreal. Don't read this one if you are squeamish.

Review: Spy

Spy Spy by Danielle Steel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Danielle Steel is a very popular writer, yes, I know that, but this book really wasn't for me. I read it because it was supposed to be about a girl spying for the British government during WWII, which happens to be a genre of books that I LOVE....well, I must say there were lots of plot lines that could have been explored. A lot of endings that I created in my head that I thought would have made for a better book. I just did not enjoy this. I am not that romance novel girl, I really should not have picked up this one.

Review: The Glittering Hour: A Novel

The Glittering Hour: A Novel The Glittering Hour: A Novel by Iona Grey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was the first pick of my 2020 book "club" pick. I was nervous about picking it because I was asking people to read with me. About 5% into the book I was afraid I made a mistake picking this one, but no I was so wrong. About 10% into the book I realized I really needed to know about Selina and this Alice person. We were traveling through time, but I wasn't sure how these two girls were connected. I had to know about Selina, Theo, and Flick. I needed to know how their antics were going to translate into what kind of adults they were becoming. I don't want to spoil something for you so I won't tell you much more. I will tell you that this book is about the Bright Young Things and what high jinx they get involved in and how life happens to them and they have to become adults. It is also about a woman, Selina who is trapped in a world of wealth and "putting on airs". Selina longs for an escape from this world, but how will she run away from it? Once she finds her path the proverbial rug is ripped out from under her and she has to re-think all of her dreams and desires.
