⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars What a cute story! While the story dealt with some heavy topics like mental illness and alcoholism the overall tone was light which was nice. I absolutely adored Levi though! Definitely want to check out more Rainbow Rowell works!

Queer Eye: Love Yourself. Love Your Life. | Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 stars I absolutely adore the Fab 5!! My hubby and I listened to the audio book on our drive down to visit family. My favorite part was each of the guys sharing their personal back stories. Some of their tips were just OK. But I'll take any queer eye I can get!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 /5 stars AMAZING!!!!! I am absolutely in love with this series! I think I like this one even more than the first one! The plot twists are outstanding and I never saw them coming. The way Tahir weaves this story is brilliant! This is definitely one of my favorite reads so far this year!

Jeralyn I'm in the middle of the first book and this makes me soo excited to continue the series! 1w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️5/5 I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did! I knew nothing about Justice Sotomayor before this, but after learning her story I'm glad this was my book club pick! She is very relatable, down to earth, and truly inspiring. A wonderful memoir!

Marvel Powers of a Girl | Lorraine Cink

Mehso-so

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars I had such high hopes for this book. While there was some good information in here, most of the writing was so cringey. I know this is meant for young audiences, but I think the over use of slang took away from the empowering phrases. Also how are "having a lot of money," being a "party girl," or being a "grade-A flirt" good skills for young women? The best thing about this book was the illustrations.

The Library Book | Susan Orlean

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 stars An interesting story about the LA library, it's history, and the role it plays in it's community. I thought it would talk more about libraries overall, but it was very focused on the LA library. I could have done without the middle bit during the 1800s. Still an enjoyable read as a library book lover 📚

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3/5 stars I wanted to give up multiple times on this book, but I finished it. The second part was much better and my favorite parts were when he was describing his trips on different psychedelics. While I'm not wanting to try any of these substances, I do think they can be very beneficial for people suffering from addiction, depression, and other mental illnesses.
