I started this book with a #skeptical mindset but I stand corrected after I finished it. Who would have thought that a #formerNBA superstar could write?! I enjoyed this book right from beginning; it was such an #engaging and #unputdownable book!

IamIamIam I read an article a few months ago about this book. Jabbar said he would have been a writer years ago if basketball hadn't gotten in the way!! 😂 2y
thereadingowlvina @IamIamIam Ha, that's too funny! But he sure has a flair for writing! I still can't believe how good this book was 😄 2y

A beautifully written #historicalfiction set in a time and culture where a woman's worth and status is measured by her #fertility. #Love, #betrayal, #sacrifice and #jealousy are some of the themes explored throughout this book. An #engaging #goodread from beginning to end. #parnazforoutan #bookart #bookphotos #bookphotography #yycreads #calgaryreads #readforlife #read150 #multiplebookreading #passionforreading #asia #bookworm #calgarylibrary

For $10k, #JackGantos, a 22 years old aspiring #writer agreed to help a friend to sail a hashish loaded yacht from the #virginislands to #newyorkcity. He was caught and sentenced to serve up to 6 years. It was a good #quickread with an #engaging story that is, in the end how Gantos used his experience in #prison to make himself a writer today. #nonfiction #crime #readanythingandeverything #read150 #readmorebooks #bibliophage #calgarylibrary

While waiting for the next volume of #bridesstory, I just have to read another series by #kaorumori. So, I picked this one. This is about a servant named Emma in #victorianengland. As usual, the story is #engaging, and I love the #meticulous and #beautiful #illustrations! #manga #graphicnovel #read150 #readanythingandeverything #readforlife #gratefulforlibraries #librarybooks #19thcentury #calgarylibrary

This first book in the #ChroniclesoftheKings series is an easy and #engaging read. It centered around the life of Prince #Hezekiah during the time when the nation has turned away from #Yahweh and worshipped the pagan god #Molech instead. I enjoyed the author's writing style although the dialogue can sound too modern. Overall, it's a #goodread and I'm starting on book 2 soon. #historicalfiction #biblicalcharacters #ancienthistory

A Deadly Affection | Cuyler Overholt

An #engaging read for those who like #murder #mystery. I like the old #NewYork setting. Dr. Genevieve Summerford specialized in #psychotherapy and she is determined to prove her patient's innocence who is accused of murder. #historicalfiction #pageturner #greatread
