Look what I found in the free section of my job!!!!!!!!! I started to tear up omg
Great read! The thing I disliked about the book was the Dunbar guessed a lot about different parts of Judge's life.
Great collection of short stories! My favorites: Glory, Light, Wild, and Redemption.
So disappointing. Febos digress way too much in each essay. Like she'll talk about love and then talk about something in history that is completely unrelated to the essay. She'll go back to talking about love and then goes into different topic also completely unrelated to the essay.
I really wanted to like this, but the digression was too much.
It was beautiful. That's all I can really say.
Wow. A great collection of poems!
I really loved this book. The main thing I didn't like was that McBride tended to repeat himself. For a lot of stories, McBride mentioned them at least two to three different times. Overall, it was a great book. #nonfictionnovember
I thought it was okay. It was all over the place, which was annoying. I also wish we learned more about the women themselves, not just about their murder. Brown just gave the bare minimum about them. I mostly wanted to read this book, because I wanted to hear more of the women.
I just started to listen to this today. It is very good so far. I also like listening to Julian's, I mean Dominic Hoffman's narration. #nonfictionnovember
I decided to read this book as my Halloween pick for this month.
Oyeyemi's books are usually a hit or miss with me, but I thought this novel was just okay. I was confused most of the time, and had to reread some bits. I love her writing, but the story didn't do much for me.
I really liked this book! My main complaint is that so much of this book was filler. Like, if Jackson made this book 200 pages instead of 343 pages it would have been so much stronger. It is was a really good book, but I just didn't think a lot of parts were relevant to the story.
I thought it was just okay. I wish Santiago just focused on Ana, not on everyone in her life. The little side stories did not add much to the novel at all. That being said, I did not like Santiago's narration in the beginning, but it grew on me. Even though I thought this novel was okay, I'll still read more of Santiago's books. I just expected so much more, so I'm a bit disappointed with it.
My Book of the Month order came! I decided to treat myself this month and ordered 3 books. I've already read Veins of the Ocean, and it was one of my favorite reads this year. I'm excited to read The Mothers and The Wangs vs. the World. The mints were a pleasant surprise, though 😂 #botm
For Latinx Hertiage Month, I wanted to read about a Latina detective. I made the right choice with this book Lupe is a great character, and even a better detective. That being said, what a great book. I liked the fact that the case was not about a murder. A lot of detective novels I've read are about murders so this was refreshing. I can't wait to read more from Garcia-Aguilera! #latinxheritagemonth #diversedetectives
