It was so-so until the author got to the part about her Legal Aid advocacy for poor women in Kentucky, and the book filled with fire and passion. I liked the parts about the tough women in her family, and she touches on social issues in Appalachia, but I feel the book tried to cover too much. It was sweet, and I am full of admiration for the author for coming home and pitching in instead of dissing the place from afar. #arc

I hate to write negative reviews because I can only imagine how much time, Heart and effort goes into writing a novel. However, with that being said, this book just wasn‘t for me. I had trouble following some of the descriptions and I also never really connected with the characters on a level that made me actually care about them. The premise sounded so good. It has received many good reviews-just wasn‘t for me.

A good contemporary novel that‘s a little different than what I‘d normal read, but still enjoyable. I think this would be filed under chick-lit. At times there was too many descriptions and fillers, but the overall story was touching and real.

⭐️⭐️⭐️

marleed I just read a book where the MC travelled on a humanitarian mission, yet the author detailed over and over the appearance and apparel of the secondary characters. It just didn‘t make sense to me! 1d
Kristy_K @marleed I know! Sometimes I feel like they are just trying to meet a word count. 1d

"She was the first woman and the first Muslim to be awarded the Pritzker Prize, architecture's highest honor."

I had never heard of Zaha Hadid until this book, but hers is a story to be told. Once again, Little People, Big Dreams proves to be informative for both children and adults.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a BRILLIANT debut! So incredibly well written and the main character‘s arc is subtle and masterful. An uncomfortable but amazing read. #ARC

#SoaringScores #TimeBombTown #NetGalley #ARC Book releases October 15, 2019. A timely look at race relations. Told in the past (Los Angeles 1991/1992 ) and the present day. Based loosely around the shooting of Latasha Harlan‘s, an African American shot in the head by a Korean store owner who thought her life was in danger and the ensuing LA Race Riots. This book had wonderful potential but it was too YA in it‘s writing & storytelling for me.

CrowCAH Perfect timing ⏰ 4d

This one started a little slow for me, but now that I‘m getting more into the meat of the story, I‘ve been enjoying it! It‘s a good spooky-light (really, not spooky at all...but there are ghosts and other supernatural beings) read for the season! 👻 Gatsby was enjoying rubbing his face on the corner and pawing at the pages last night too! 🐱❤️
