⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I LOVED this book! This follows Addie which is the best friend from Lina the main character from Love & Gelato! She is in Ireland with all her family at an aunt‘s destination wedding! Things happen and we meet new characters and follow them through many adventures in Ireland! I just loved everything about this book! I shed a tear or two in some parts and laughed in others.. I can‘t wait for her next book! #theunreadshelfproject2019

I‘m Fine and Neither are you by Camille Pagan.. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I enjoyed a lot of aspects of this story. There were times when I connected to the main character.. being a mom, wife and worker and putting everything before oneself. It was a bit of a slow start for me but overall I think it was a good story..

Because this story is about her life I don‘t feel entitled to give this a star rating. However I do want to say that I loved this book! Full thoughts below ⬇️

booksensation So much of this book reminded me of my childhood.. I came here in 1999 with my parents and my cousin from Colombia and that fear of deportation was always very real and scary. I found that this book was a very nice representation of this issue for young audiences. 4mo
booksensation I do want to give some trigger warnings for depression and suicide thoughts.. so please parents read this with your children.. I really thank Diane for sharing her story! 4mo

Daisy Jones & The Six 4.5 ⭐️ I loved this book! I am someone who likes to read or know about bands and musicians and they‘re behind the scenes of becoming famous.. so this book was right up there in my alley! I loved the characters and how real their story was.. I do have to say though that certain characters I could have gone without and certain situations were a bit hard to read about but I think they are important to the story..

#marchwrapup this time I wanted to show it differently and show a page of my #readingjournal. This month was really slow reading month for me.. a lot of personal things happening that prevented me from reading a lot but I‘m hoping next month it‘s better. I feel like I might be in a bit of a slump? 🤔😩

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ to the March pick for @dragonsandteabookclub.. I feel like the idea was great but it just needed more. I liked some of the side characters more than the main character and I feel like the ending needed some more work. I really liked the cocktail recipes at the end of certain chapters and the back story that it provided for the magical side of this book.. looking forward to next month for sure! 😊

4 ⭐️ read. I enjoyed a lot of the aspects of the story! The writing style was good and the characters were likable. The plot twists that were thrown towards the end I can honestly say I didn‘t expect. It took me a bit to actually get into the story but once I did, it was hard to put the book down! This one comes out today! So if you haven‘t.. add this one to your #tbr 😊

Book 5 of #contemporaryathon completed! 4 ⭐️ read! I really enjoyed reading this book, it breaks my heart to read about the injustice that the main character faces. Being a Muslim person in a world after 9/11 is not easy and it‘s even worse when you‘re a young teenager in high school. I keep thinking about how some kids can be so cruel and stories like these just enforce that belief.. 😕

#dragonsandteabookclub pick for February.. I gave this a 4 ⭐️ I really liked the way the author wrote the perspective of the MC Ruth and how she sees the world as someone that is Autistic. The romance was fantastic and I really enjoyed the way Ruth took her life back and overcame all the issues with the townsfolk. Can‘t wait to see what is the pick for next month 😊
