I‘d highly recommend this to history lovers. Take your time in reading this tome. It‘s worth it! And the pictures definitely helped bring me back to that time period! I‘m getting a copy of this for my dad for his birthday! Oh! Apparently there‘ll be a movie made about Yasuke too!

Sold on a Monday: A Novel | Kristina Mcmorris

Pickpick

Set in the Depression Era, Ellis Reed, a journalist, got a big break in his career when his story with a picture of a sign that read '2 Children for Sale' was published. Sympathy & help came pouring in to help the children in the picture. All was good until the story took an ugly turn.

A quick, yet thought-provoking read! A great cure for a reading slump, especially if you enjoy #historicalfiction!

Even though there weren‘t any concrete plot or strong characters, her skillful storytelling kept me going. All in all, I‘d say it‘s between a pick and so-so, leaning more towards a pick. If this is food, I‘d say it‘s very much an acquired taste. If you‘re one for dreamy, magical realism with vivid imagery and lyrical prose, you might enjoy this! I‘m excited to read her upcoming novel ‘Inland‘!

One of the best books I‘ve read so far! It had all the ingredients I love – a great plot, wonderful characters (love love those Punjabi widows!), emotional, funny, thoughtful, provocative and unbiased! This book made me cry too – there were some very touching scenes...Being able to put all that into a book and making it such a great page turner take great skills and talent. Kudos to the author!

Samplergal OMG. My fiancé calls me a bag lady. ? When I was working, I had totes for materials( I went into toddlers homes ) for each child I had on my caseload. Then assessments. And then knitting. And books. Groceries. My fiancé thinks I‘m nuts, but I do use them. I love them. They are like buying T-shirt‘s. They can tell people your personality in a bag. Enjoy! 1mo

Some parts were good, some parts were okay. I was looking for a little more depth in the characters but didn't find it in the novel. Didn't like the MC and found it hard to empathize with her. I find her friend's story could've been delved a little deeper to add some depth and focus. Great for a light, quick weekend read though.

“You have every right to wear your hoodie, to play your music as loud as you want. You have every right to be you. And no one should deter you from being you. You have to be you. And you can never be afraid to be you."

A heart-breaking read. I almost couldn't finish it. A letter to his son about what it's like being born black, living as one, living among the people who believe they're white.

No words can do this book justice. Just (re)read it.

The Farm: A Novel | Joanne Ramos

Mehso-so

The novel touched on several important issues, told through numerous characters. Every issue was broadly touched and every character had almost an equal part in the story, losing the impact I was hoping for.

I loved the premise, and truly, this book had a lot of potential. I just felt something lacked. I honestly wanted to love this book that I‘d shout out to the world to read it now. But it didn‘t have that impact on me.

Thank you @thewallflower0707 for recommending me this book for my #newyearwhodis challenge. What a powerful yet heartbreaking story.

The ending was utterly heartbreaking, but so real.

Two victims were killed in a fire inside Miracle Submarine, a machine believed to cure autism. Many suspects, but only one killer. Who?

This novel is told through multiple POVs which made it more interesting & suspenseful. I even locked myself away from distractions to devour this book & solve this murder case!

A stunning debut! Full review on my blog.

TQ #Netgalley & #FSGbooks for a free eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is such a beautifully written book with many heartbreaks in between. Even though I knew what was to be expected at the end and told myself not let Lisa See get me all teary again, that was exactly what happened. I bawled at the end. Like a baby.

My favorite quote from the book? No coincidence, no story.

Another must-read, especially if you're a Lisa See fan!

A page turner. Loved the plot as much as the characters. I liked how this novel blurred the areas of good and evil, right and wrong; how we, when consumed by powers, try to play God, yet at the same time err as humans. Ponder on this: What would you do if you literally have a God by your side, have powers as great as his/hers and able to bend the entire world to your will? What. Would. You. Do? Looking forward to the sequel!

Women Talking: A Novel | Miriam Toews

Mehso-so

8 Mennonite women from the Molotschna colony gathered to have a secret meeting to decide whether to stay & fight, stay and do nothing, or leave after what had happened. Minutes were taken by the narrator of the story, August Epp. I had a hard time getting into the story & characters, and desperately wanted to, especially when this is based on true events. I guess the writing style used to approach the subject matter, just isn‘t for me. ⬇️

A book from my #newyearwhodis list picked by @thewallflower0707. This story hits pretty close to home. I had my share of a toxic relationship. I couldn't tell anyone, even my parents, because they didn't approve of it as he was of a different race. I'm just glad I manage to get out of it. Full review & a short writeup of my experience on my blog.

Some parts could be trimmed a little, if not I'd give it👍🏼👍🏼

Thought-provoking stories like these always never fail to move me. The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat & the issues that were brought up left me with some food for thought. That said, it didn't exceed my expectations, due to some of the subplots which I thought weren't necessary.
