An American Marriage | Tayari Jones
Pickpick

This book is phenomenal. The portrayal of 4 different African American fathers and the love between Celeste & Roy is almost tangible. I could not put this book down. It‘s so raw and real... my heart was tugged every which way. Job well done Miss Jones. Job well done.

The Time Traveler's Wife | Audrey Niffenegger
Pickpick

Ah! My heartstrings—Audrey tugged them, broke them, mended them back together & strained them. I can‘t tell you whether I‘m coming or going at the moment. Phenomenal!

Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams

A struggle to finish. A bit inconclusive. I get the point, but writing could have been better. Then again, it‘s from the perspective of a black female from the UK. I‘m a black girl from America. Our views may be different.

Sometimes I Lie | Alice Feeney
Mehso-so

Read for a book club. I‘ve read better psycho thrillers, but interesting twists and turn. Don‘t plan on reading again.... will update if my views change after the meeting.

Bel Canto | Ann Patchett

Very satisfied with the ending (not the epilogue). It took me awhile to read because I kept convincing myself that I wasn‘t interested. Glad I kept on keeping on. Very interesting perspectives.

Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan

Won‘t make my top 50 list. I was hoping for some type of closure, but didn‘t get it. Too choppy for me.

Definitely a must read!

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
Pickpick

It took me awhile to get into it, but once I did I could not put it down. It‘s 2:34a EST & my mind is racing. We‘ve all been Tara Westover in one way or another. Maybe not as extreme (maybe more so). We‘ve all had to come to the crossroads where you believe & move forward with the past or step into an unknown & uncomfortable future.

Very descriptive. Really enjoyed the story line.

“I‘m a very easy man to understand, Sayuri... I don‘t like things held up for me that I cannot have...”

“It was what we Japanese called the onion life, peeling away a layer at a time and crying all the while.”

“As a younger woman, I believed passion must surely fade with age, just as a cup left standing in a room will gradually give up its contents to the air.”

Steal Away Home | Billy Coffey

I wanted to like the book more than I do. To me, some of the dots just didn‘t connect.

Becoming | Michelle Obama

“Most of us [live] in a state of constant collaboration, tweaking one area of life in hopes of bringing more steadiness to another.”

Becoming | Michelle Obama

“Until now, I‘d constructed my existence carefully, tucking & folding every loose & disorderly bit of it.... He was like a wind that threatened to unsettle everything...”

Becoming | Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama‘s love & respect for her father moves me to tears. It reminds me of my own relationship with my father, who (by the way) gave me the book.
