#BlackHistoryMonth Loving this memoir about a daughter of #Haitian immigrants who was born into poverty but had an abundance of street smarts. A natural hustler, Cin was always scheming and scamming finding creative ways to earn money. Deciding college was an expense she couldn‘t afford, Cin chooses to apply for a job on Wall Street as a cold caller. Think a female Jordan Belfort 🐺

A woman wakes up in a hotel in Lisbon and discovers her husband is missing. She doesn‘t know the city nor the language when she sets out to find him, a man she doesn‘t seem to know that well either.
What follows is an interesting thriller, involving themes of today‘s online connected world and the ever present one of women‘s vulnerability (written about by a man, not bad). Filled with twists this book made for a good read

Finished this one while #audiopuzzling on a dreary Oklahoma day. My first MKA! It was a super cute romantic mystery about a house flip TV program that turns into a whodunnit. I enjoyed it even if it didn‘t knock my socks off. It was a little saccharine and I figured out the guilty party pretty early on. But it was lots of fun nonetheless. #bookspin #52bookclub23 #publishedbymacmillan

I read this years ago but didn‘t remember it well, and now have the following two. Along similar lines as Nat Enough, but with the added punch of being fictionalized autobiography, Shannon‘s struggles with friendship in elementary school were heartbreaking yet hopeful. The mean girls, the loners, the ones too big for their situations - they‘re all here. Shannon can be less than ideal herself, but that‘s pretty honest. Looking forward to more.
