#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Glamour

She was aware some believed the glamour surrounding her career was the result of a glamour spell, but she knew better than mixing magic with her public life. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

Winnie the Pooh ~ A. A. Milne

I’m a little late in posting my review today: just because I had to retype it. I wrote it on my computer and forgot to paste it on my wordpress to schedule for this morning. That’s how much of a airhead I can be. A bit like the main character of the book I’m reviewing….

In Search of Hope

Everyone knew about La Gaudiere; the inn was a sanctuary for those in need. Or in trouble. Rinn mothered every stray that came through her door; and few weren’t welcome to her neat and friendly home. Yet the rules were to be followed and nobody should put the others at risk. Everyone also knew she…

Memoirs of a Geisha ~ Arthur Golden

For this week’s review I read Arthur Golden’s Memoirs of a Geisha, which follows a young woman from a fishermen’s village to Kyoto through her training as a Geisha in 1930s Japan. The story spans a little over two decades and is told from the perspective of our narrator as she is in her late 60s….

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Cave

She was terrified when she entered the cave; she’d always hated dark and confined spaces but she couldn’t lose face in front of her ex’s new girlfriend. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin ~ Louis de Bernières

So over the past two weeks I read Louis de Bernières’ Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. I’d heard about it because of the movie and the comments that it wasn’t as good as the book – something quite common. Now I haven’t seen the movie but it’s not up to par with the novel, I don’t want…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Occupy

It was her mission to occupy the soldiers in such a way that they didn’t think to verify if dissidents were hidden in the house they were supposed to occupy. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

The Kite Runner ~ Khaled Hosseini

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini was a discovery. I devoured the book between Birdsong and Catcher in the Rye. Not on purpose. I was certain it was the book I needed to read for January 4th 2017. Turns out it wasn’t. But I read it in less than 2 days. The Kite Runner tells…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Tax

Marley always looked forward to tax time even though everyone around her agreed to say that it sometimes would tax the nerve of the calmest individual. ©scolpron2017 Sorry for the late prompt; today was a bit crazy. ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

The War Inside of Us

The idea that within man occurs a struggle between good and evil is as old as religion. The protagonists of this war have many names: hybris and logos, angels and demons… It is up to man to decide which path he chooses. Or so we’d like to believe. But the truth is that the issue…

Where The Crows Gathered

The Stenham house was an ancient locked thing and nothing returned there except for crows. At least, that was what most people thought in the area. And they were happy for it to stay exactly that way thank you very much. The Stenhams had been freaks of nature unfit for life in normal society. Words…
