One review instead of two :<

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! As you can tell from the blog heading, I’m only going to be posting one review this evening for you. With guests coming in next week, my time is a little more divided than I’d anticipated and I just couldn’t write both reviews in time. But, rest assured, that just means you’ll get to read the review next week, and I still have a review of a brand new book for you this evening. Check out the opening to my post on The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware:

A nanny discovers she got much more than she anticipated in what sounded like the “perfect” job. Between creepy elements in the house and children who won’t listen, the young woman fights her growing anxiety and paranoia until she finds herself in prison. Except she says she’s innocent. Author Ruth Ware offers readers her latest thriller in the mostly successful novel The Turn of the Key.

Have a fantastic rest of the week, readers!



The impending “Hiatus on a half shell”

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! My family and I leave for vacation this week, so as I mentioned last Monday I won’t be posting new short stories or Growth Charts this month. I will, however, have a few new book reviews for you, and I’ll share some inspirational quotes. After all, our minds may take time off, but our creativity almost never does.

Here’s this week’s quote. I think it’s a great reminder not to rest on our laurels but also not to dwell on our failures. If we make diligent efforts to improve ourselves in our life’s passions, our past work should reassure us that we’re getting better every year.

“Don’t live life in the past lane.” —Samantha Ettus, American author, advisor, the Forbes School of Business & Technology

In the middle of the week, I’ll let you know what I thought of the new thriller Layover by David Bell. Come back to The Write Edge Bookshelf on Wednesday to see that review!

And I may not be posting all of the written content here this month, but I’ll be in touch via Instagram. If you haven’t seen my other posts there yet, check them out with my handle, @EktaRGarg or visit my Facebook author page for my Instagram pics and other fun stuff.

Have a fantastic week, readers!
