Editorial Review – The Necklace

 

Book title: The Necklace

Author: Lewis Horwitz

It is a common misconception that if you want to write a book, you have to come up with a fantastical plot which involves complex twists and turns, a dashing hero, and a spunky heroine and maybe a villainous character or two. But quite often it’s not about that at all. Writing is simply an external manifestation of your need to tell a story. It doesn’t have to be intricate; it just needs to be real. In this book, Lewis Horowitz does exactly that: he narrates two parallel stories of family, loss, and most of all, the transformative powers of true love.

Caraval – Book Review

Topaz and Lace – Book Review

 

Topaz and Lace by Amber Laura Young

When I first came across this novel, the title didn’t appeal to me. The blurb didn’t really catch my fancy either. I shrugged and turned away from it. But then I read a few lines of writing by the author from another work, and I was immediately impressed. There was so much atmosphere there in those few sentences that it made me check the novel again.

I took a peek in the book. After reading the first pages, I knew I wanted to read it all. I still don’t know what the title as to do with the book, but I found it nigh on impossible to put down!
