Luster: A Novel | Raven Leilani

This book has many sad parts on how this woman try to go on in her life without almost any support. But I found some part unrealistic. Sometimes I didn‘t know if I was in the past, present or just in her thoughts while she was thinking about her life. I don‘t know, it didn‘t work for me. 2.5⭐️

Voya received her calling, meaning first bleeding. The ritual is that one of the ancestors will appear to assign her a task that must be completed in order to become a witch. YA fantasy with a “pinch” of sci-if which I didn‘t expect, mystery. I liked the story it was ok, entertaining but unnecessarily too long. It appeals to the importance to take decisions. I think is overrated in GR. the bleeding ritual parts were disgusting, nasty🤢3.3⭐️

Gissy Love that cover😍

TheAromaofBooks Sometimes it feels like authors just want to be kind of “edgy“ to seem more creative. 😕 4mo
Gissy @TheAromaofBooks Maybe 😳but the story was entertaining. I need to read different genres and for different audiences because I need variation in my monotone life🤣and I really love that cover with those colors, silly because that‘s maybe irrelevant to the story but I can‘t help it🤷🏽‍♀️ 4mo

Candela | Rey Emmanuel Andjar

Renato is murdered and officer Imanol Petafunte will be in charge to investigate the case. In these 148 pages we will see a decadence of a community and in the characters that knew Renato: political corruption, decadence in values and moral, prostitution, racism, prejudice,..I liked the writing style but is some parts, (like chunks of good expressions) but for me as a whole, was sometimes confused because some parts were disconnected😬3⭐️

Gissy Candela in my opinion was not the main character but it is the book title😳

I started this book during #FabulousFebruary #Readathon @Andrew65 but I finished it during #InmemoryofSharonreadathon @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @professionsl_book_dragon

Mixed feelings. I liked the story, how the author, inspired by a song, create a story about what happened to some pregnant African slave women who were thrown overboard by their owners due to sickness or overboard. You will feel how painful is to remember through Yetu‘s voice, responsible to remember to transmit the history, to maintain their identity, pertinence in the community but so hard😢Some parts for me were isolated from the story. 3.7⭐️

Gissy Love the cover. The paperback cover in my opinion is prettier than the hardcover.

Yellow Wife: A Novel | Sadeqa Johnson
post image
Pickpick

Inspired by a true event, the author will recreate a story of how would be the life of Mary Lumpkin, a mixed race woman, who had 5 children with Robert Lumpkin, known for his cruelty during his period in that jail between 1844 to 1865. The author provides references of these events and explains what motivated her to write this story. So sad and I know it was worse in the real time. Love the story and the writing style. 4⭐️

Gissy Love the gifts because they were so related with the characters. I love that cover😍You will identify with Pheby 💛
