Getting some serious side eye from Zelda for picking my book back up and stopping the belly rubs. #schnauzersoflitsy #losersclub

BookNAround Sweet Zelda! Those schnauzers can be demanding for sure. Gatsby disagrees with me and thinks Zelda has a point about rubs and scratches versus moms reading. 😂 5d

No quite sure what I think about this one. Sheba did not like it - haha 😂. I went into it thinking it was a different type of book than it was, which might be why I cannot decide. Might have to read the next one to see if I want to continue. #schnauzersoflitsy #shebathecritic

I enjoyed listening to this one. I find some of her life experiences very enlightening. All the things I want to talk about are spoilers, so go read this so I can talk to someone. 😂🤓

Chelleo LOL ... it was good. I really like the discussions about raising black boys. The struggle is real. I was also surprised to learn about black women‘s hair in Hollywood. 4mo
Karkar @Chelleo I was surprised at the the Hollywood hair people too. I could not believe that it would not be a requirement to know how to style and deal with all of the different hair types. It saddens me that it is such a different experience to raise a boy depending only on the color of their skin. It should not be this way! I thought it was interesting that she married he first husband even though at the wedding she knew it was over. 4mo

Forgive me, seems I am a bit behind in my reviews. I listened to this one on audio. I like most of the stories. I do wish there would have been more of a signal when a new story started on the audiobook, as it was hard to tell. It was interesting how he worked in a typewriter into each story.
