One of the best YA novels I‘ve read in a LONG time. 👏🏻 I honestly could not stop reading it. The main character has synesthesia. She sees emotions as colors—I‘ve never heard of this condition before, and it fascinated me. Highly recommend reading this book 💫💫💫💫💫

Another Oprah book listen! This one is just of her readings sharing her wisdom. I had heard a few things she said already in her previous books, but that is because I have read them in the wrong order! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was exactly what I needed. I listened to this book on audible and she was a great narrator. You can definitely tell she is a wonderful public speaker. It‘s a wonderful read if you are young mother, growing a new business, or just need a little motivation in your life. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

With both my kids having the stomach flu and ear infections, I‘ve been slacking on my reading! ☹️ Just finished this last week with my book club kids! It‘s an interesting book with a lot of fun characters, but I personally don‘t think I‘d want to read it again..
Some of the topics are pretty heavy (racism, infertility,etc) so we had some really deep discussions!

Crazeedi I need your p.o.box number!! 3mo

A book about a little girl in Victorian London. She is a chimney climber. Her life is very depressing and tragic..Fortunately, she has a little bit of magic—and luck in her life. Surprisingly, I wished there were illustrations in this book. I would have loved to see what Charlie and Nan actually looked like in the author‘s eye. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
