Very, very thought-provoking and unique. Made me really think about gender norms, stereotypes and issues we have today in the world. #LMPBC #Round13 #GroupN @Lauranahe @HWarren
@Lauranahe this is on its way to you tomorrow.
This was an intense read for me, I could only read it in small amounts per day so it took me awhile to finish. This author at times writes utterly beautiful, opens up about everything brutally honest, I loved it. What a talented writer. 5 big ❤❤❤❤❤ #LMPBC #GroupN #Round12 @Hazel2019 @ncsufoxes @Amiable Thank you so much for sharing these fascinating novels.
Yes, this book needs some uninterrupted time. You have to let yourself get into it without disruption…and when you do, it is such a great read! It‘s fascinating and funny, really well researched, and gave me so much more perspective on what really took place back in those days. I was worried this would be dry and was somewhat intimidated by this book. It wasn‘t and I loved it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Julia Child in this memoir —she was witty, intelligent and wickedly funny. I admire her passion for learning how to cook and mastering her craft. Some of the book is overly detailed (too much so, IMO), but Julia‘s charm and joie de vivre wins out in the end. Thanks for the experience, #LMPBC #Round12 #GroupN !
I‘m not sure how to review this one. There were parts I really liked and parts I really didn‘t. The writing is very good, however—the author has a gift for putting words together. I‘m glad this was a choice for #LMPBC, though —it‘s totally different from anything I would have picked up on my own and it pushed me out of my normal reading comfort zone.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Another five star read for me! Gorgeously written! This is not a book that you will soon forget. A ‘black spirit memoir‘ that will take you on a journey, will make you think, will make you pause…I did have to take a break half way through reading it and let it all digest before moving on. It is a bit repetitive in the middle but I think in the end it all serves a purpose. A great and impactful work of art.
