Luster | Raven Leilani

Pearls pick for the month of May is Luster by Raven Leilani. This will be a first for the Book Pearls and of course we are curious as to whether or not the title is a giveaway to the storyline.

The Stars Beneath Our Feet | David Barclay Moore

Dear Lolly,
I wish I could hug you and tell you everything will be alright. Death is not easy for adults to experience and as a young scholar I‘m sure it‘s even harder to process. Am I the only one who talks to fictional characters?

Time to decompress…it‘s been one of those days! 3 more days until spring break!! Am I the only one whose bookshelves look a mess right now? 😩

Nute My bookshelves were always well organized for a very long time, but since I have run out of shelving room and now that I try to shove books into any tiny space available there is no longer any organization.😕 Good luck with your reorganization! 1mo

The title alone draws a reader in! Husband For Sale by B.M. Hardin will not disappoint. Book Pearls have read several titles by B.M. Hardin and I‘m sure this pick for the month of July will be no different.

The only thing saving this read is the honey peach tea. This was my first read by Stuart Turton and I‘m a little perplexed as to why this book had such great reviews.

Rachiiebookdragon I‘m perplexed too, it‘s not an easy read and the audiobook didn‘t help 😴 11mo
Bookpearl @Rachiiebookdragon Ever other page I kept looking around waiting for someone to give me a clear explanation as to WHY!! 😩 11mo

The Other Woman | Eric Jerome Dickey
post image

The passing of Eric Jerome Dickey still has me shook and I‘m about to revisit a few of his older titles.
The Other Woman will have you on the edge of your seat and ready to jump off the rollercoaster. As for Freckles, she will forever be etched in my soul. I still feel her emotions as I talk about the infidelity and after many years I still say, I would have shot him.

It‘s been a while since I‘ve stayed up and listened to a book that had me at hello! I‘ve been with these folks since day one and don‘t want the saga to end. I‘m slowly making my way through it due to Book 3 not being released until December, that‘s so not fair! 😩

BeaG I haven‘t read Butterfly yet. I have read Moth to a Flame by here and most of the Ethic series by her. I‘m going to check this one out. 2y
Bookpearl I would finish up the Ethic series so you‘ll know what‘s going on and the move to Butterfly 1. 2y

Reggie You going back to school soon? Or you guys on hold. Or doing remote. I remember you had a school bookclub. 2y
Bookpearl @Reggie Teachers return tomorrow and the students return on the 17th. We‘re doing a mix of hybrid and remote. The kids will be in the building four days a week and broken up in groups of 2 (A and B days) with Wednesday being strictly remote. Praying we‘ll be able to have clubs this year but online. 2y
Reggie I hope all of you stay safe. My dad‘s a teacher but they won‘t return until mid September at the earliest. Until then everyone is remote. Good luck! 2y

Ghana, eighteenth century: two half sisters are born into different villages, each unaware of the other.

The other will be captured in a raid on her village, imprisoned in the very same castle, and sold into slavery.

Pearls pick for the month of July is none other than Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison. It‘s been years since I‘ve read this (20+ to be exact) and I‘m curious to see if I have matured with my thinking.
