A sad but beautifully written memoir. The author will share her experience of her mother tragic death, how both of them suffered from racism and domestic abuse. You can see so well the domestic abuser mind schema (if that is the correct word) in those phone calls transcripts. Could her mother‘s death have been prevented?

I‘m not the target audience for this book which is a middle grade. I like middle grade books but I didn‘t enjoy this one as much as I would liked. The story was too long and confusing but this is an unpopular opinion. Most people like this series. I don‘t think I will continue with it. I liked Mini, so funny. This book I think is great to introduce children with Hindu mythology and folklore. 3⭐️

A cute YA book. Arthur will meet Ben during the summer in some strange circumstances, maybe the universe wanted to connect them? You need to read the story to understand this phrase. Many things will happen that summer between these two characters from different backgrounds. I think they resolved their life situations very well taking in consideration their age, communication is the clue. Funny YA scenes and I liked the end, was different.

As expected in most of Short Story Collection, I liked some short stories more than the others but I found that the ends in these stories were rushed and inconclusive. Well, maybe I should say that I‘m not so fan of short stories in general but I keep trying them. 3⭐️But I like that cover ❤️

Martha, at age 79, wants some changes in her life and decides to commit a white collar crime with her friends at the retirement house who will help her. The scenes were unrealistic, absurds, but funny. However, I think it was too long with unnecessary scenes. Sometimes i just felt bored. 3 ⭐️

It was a very up and down reading week for me. These numbers are not super impressive but since May is historically the month I read the least I‘m pretty proud.

Books Finished: 4
Pages Read: 732
Hours Read: 16:53

Thank you @Andrew65 for hosting and the encouragement.

I forgot to update yesterday. I didn‘t read anymore poetry (my head is stuck in the BDB), but I started King John, got to 3 more BDB books, and I‘ve gotten closer to caught up on Clanlands, so that‘s at least better than it was.

I actually completed my goals for #marvellousmay! Along with finishing Children on the Hill and the rest the Tallow Wife stories (both excellent!), I dug into my Jane Eyre extra curricular reading with the tagged poetry collection and finally started Wide Sargasso Sea. Thamks for the inspiration, @andrew65!
