Book review: <i>The Shining</i> by Stephen King


The cover of the book

Book review: <i>A Painted House</i> by John Grisham


The cover of the book

A Painted House is the story of cotton farming, baseball, family secrets, poverty, and growing up in Arkansas in the 1950s. A bit of a deviation from your standard John Grisham, but I’m not complaining.
