These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

What I Thought I Knew, Alice Eve Cohen


This is a searingly honest tale of a 40-something woman confronting a surprise pregnancy. She struggles even further when it seems apparent that her baby is going to be born handicapped in one way or another due to a case of medical malpractice.

Cohen unflinchingly recounts her feelings of wanting a late term abortion and even her indecision months after the baby is born as to whether or not to give the baby up for adoption.

This isn't a happy book, but the love triumphs message is a good one.
