I’ve been reading scientific journals, working on assignments, essays, coursework and exams. In addition, I had to put in PhD applications … Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee | Candid Catch Up

Inside Out by Demi Moore

Book Review: Inside Out by Demi Moore

My first memory of Demi Moore is her performance in Ghost, with Patrick Swayze (now late) and Whoopi Goldberg. Demi Moore was one of the most popular and the highest-paid leading ladies in Hollywood in the 90’s, playing pioneering roles in A Few Good men (aka You can’t handle the truth!) with Tom Cruise and in G.I Jane. I heard about this memoir on the … Continue reading Book Review: Inside Out by Demi Moore

Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

Circe was a strange child, lacking any notable power, despite being a goddess. She was not street-smart, cunning or beautiful and so was ignored by her father, unwanted and despised by her nymph mother and siblings, and remained largely unknown. Circe struggled to navigate her world, understand the politics required to thrive in it and make a name for herself. Continue reading Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller
