The Bookie Says...

Recommended Books & Reviews By Renee

“THE MADWOMAN UPSTAIRS” – By Catherine Lowell


This is the first book by Catherine Lowell that I have read.  I was browsing through the Indie Next list and the title caught my eye; I just could not resist buying it.  And I have zero regrets!  I really enjoyed this book and if you like the writings of the Brontes, or if you are intrigued by their lives, you will absolutely appreciate the historical detail and dissection of the purpose, motivations and familial intrigue behind their writings.  It was reminiscent of witnessing a graduate level literature course discussion. Wry, laugh-out-loud funny with twists that will keep you going to the very end…and then some!

The Money Game by Adam Smith. This booked stoked my interest in finance and economics, which led me to focus on business and finance in college. This in turn led to a 33 year career in sales and client service in the institutional money management field.
