Dominicana by Angie Cruz Book review

  Dominicana by Angie Cruz Book review Dominicana by Angie Cruz. This is a new release. I think it comes out in like September 3rd or like early September. But it was actually released a little bit early through book of the month.  I usually am not great about reading my book of the month books right away all the time. But it was kind of just like sitting there and I had like a free day and I was like,  I'm just gonna grab this one because it's on the top of my multiple piles of unread books. And I was immediately hooked.

  Lucy and Linh by Alice Pung Book Review  Lucy and linh by alice pung it came out a number of years ago at this point.

The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas book review

  The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas book review The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas book Going into it I knew literally nothing about the three musketeers other than there were three musketeers. Like I didn't know what this plot was like, I've never seen or read or experienced any sort of adaptation of this.  So I legitimately had zero exposure to the three musketeers. So this whole experience with reading this book has been really interesting for me because I really didn't know what to expect. And I feel like what you get out of this book is not at all what you can infer from pop culture.  Like I'm the type of person where I pick up a lot of things about like classic movies and classic books just based on the way that people talk about it. And the way that people talk about the three musketeers feel so far off from this book. And I don't know if that's just because adaptations change it so much or what. But yeah, this this book is not at all what I th

He was an abusive ex-husband and all of this stuff and so she's been basically on the hideout for-- from him for a while. So she basically tells him to get lost.  And

Good Talk by Mira Jaco Book Review

  Good Talk by Mira Jaco Book Review  Good Talk by Mira Jaco this book mira jacob is exploring a lot of different topics. A lot of them revolving around identity and specifically like american identity, racial identity, things along those lines. But also things like parenthood and her life growing up and sort of how that's formed how she views things now and those sorts of things. So the story begins with her having a conversation with her son who is biracial.  Her husband is jewish american man.

The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris book review

  The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris book review The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris. This is a relatively new release that came out earlier this year and it was getting a whole lot of publishing buzz. I think partially because it takes place in the publishing world, but it's also a pretty good book.  In this story you are following this black girl named Nella who works at this publishing company named wagner books. It seems like it's a pretty big publisher, like akin to one of the big five publishers like penguin or harper or something along those lines, harpercollins.  She's basically been the only black girl working at this publishing company as long as she's been there. And at the beginning of the book she sees that another black girl has been hired at the company and she's super excited that she will no longer be the only black girl at this publishing company.  The other black girl that gets hired is this girl named hazel. She just seems like

His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie book review

  His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie book review His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie  So first up i have thorn by intisar khanani. And this is a fantasy book that is also apparently a fairy tale retelling of this fairy tale called the goose girl, which i have literally never heard of before.  So i will not be talking at all about like the retelling aspect of it because i've never heard of this fairy tale before.  I also don't really know anything about fairy tales beyond the ones that were made into disney movies.  But as a young adult fantasy book, i really enjoyed it. However i also need to say that i'm the type of person who really enjoys young adult fantasy books that are like super slow-moving and like nothing really happens for a lot of the book and stuff like that.  So i recognize now after reading a bunch of different young adult fantasy books that my preferences in young adult fantasy very often don't align with other people.  So in this book you are following thi
