Currently Watching:

Documentary Now! As someone who is obsessed with documentaries, when I stumbled cross this mockumentary on Netflix, I had to take a look. It's filled with star cameos and giggleworthy.

Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage Book Review
After waiting almost 6 months to read it on Libby,* I was very underwhelmed. There were a lot of scenes and thoughts that are inconsistent with a 7 year old, even a Mensa level child with severe mental illness and sociopath/psychopathic tendencies. In some chapters she's portrayed as genius on others she's reduced to baby talk, and it didn't ring true for me.

The parent characters are ripping each other's clothes off constantly, which I'm no prude, but it made no sense. When one of you has persistent debilitating Crohn's disease, you just survived another bowel surgery, and you are co-parenting a sadist who is trying to kill her own mother, I have to think sex is probably the last thing on your mind. Maybe I'm wrong. 

The author is very good at dialing up the suspense, but overall this was a disappointment in both character development and plot. I love the Swedes, they brought us IKEA, and light and bright modern decor, but now thanks to this book, if I ever hear the phrase "Lilla Gumman" in the wild I will start to rock in the corner.

P.S. If you've read one of my books, can you help an author on the quest to become a New York Times Bestseller out? Reviews are gold and help me reach more people. Please take a minute and tell me (and other readers) what you thought. You can review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, and Apple Books or at any other bookseller. It's even better if you copy and paste the review to multiple places. More reviews=More visibility. You can write as much or as little as you want and I would be forever in your debt.
