I‘m very familiar with feeling guilty. It‘s one of the things you have to learn to be a Christian. 😂
One of my first thoughts after a tragedy is for the parents of people who are killed. And this broke my heart
So Litsy is throwing a fit about me posting a picture that had my review of this book. To summarize: beautiful writing, but didn‘t make sense with the story. Nor did the POV. So disappointing, and I DNF-ed at 68 pages. Only the 10th book I‘ve ever DNF-ed :(
I‘m already caught in the flurry of this one. I‘m listening to the audiobook and the actor is great, but I‘m still missing some stuff and having to go back. Hopefully I can get accustomed to the cadence of this book, because the story itself is riveting.
I couldn‘t figure out how I felt about this book until now. The story should‘ve stopped at what she was telling about integration. It was powerful, heartbreaking, and genuine.
And then dropped a toxic, unrealistic, and offensive lesbian romance. Not that interracial couples aren‘t a thing (pictured: me and my wife), but because the white girl still wasn‘t convinced black people are worthy like white people. Nope. Nope. Just no.
This one was funny and felt true to the source material. Definitely worth a read!
Y'all. This is SO REAL.
Tentatively a pick.
I've never been a skinny person. I consider myself to be a reasonably well-adjusted now, but I made enough bad decisions out of insecurity. The main character is not likable. Her insecurities warp her sense of self and how she related to others. I was never as bad as her, but I can see some of myself in her, and relate to the feelings that made her unbearable. This was a hard read, but I think it was beneficial for me to do so
I really enjoyed this book. It's not usually my taste, but it made me laugh and I ended up liking their dynamic after my initial hesitation with Josh.
(Also, there is a sex scene in here that is the least cheesy I've ever read. Yay!)
My nephew, who is the cutest and the best, is mixed. And now I have to get him this book (along with any of mine and my wife's future children).
I love her!! Anyone else a Sense8 fan??
Also, for this reason alone, this was an auto-checkout 😂
So, I'm trying to tackle the larger books on my tbr. This was super-hyped for a hot minute, but I've seen some really negative reviews since then. Here's hoping it's good, and I'm not burned by my first long tbr-pile book 📚
I'm not bipolar, but this goes for me as well in my mental health circles 😂😂
I'm two chapters in, and I love this so much. I love that she's acknowledging the romanticism of mental illness, especially when it come to artistic creativity. Can't wait to be able to finish this!
One thing I really loved about this book was female friendship. So here's a pic of one of the most precious female friendships.
I also really loved how sex was discussed, with weight on consent and safety. I loved women helping women. I loved the little insights into being an Indian American. I loved the fluff.
This book is exactly what I needed ❤️
This is a great fucking book. It's a slow burn story, that's pitched kind of as a romance, but honestly the romance wasn't even the best part. That would easily go to the main character's BLOG. This is an excellent way to illustrate how her experience as a non-American black immigrant to the US differs from American-born black people, and why it matters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
