Book #40 for 2022 done! I love Rom-Com's but had gotten burned out on them because they can become very predictable. This book broke that curse for me, it was adorable, funny and relatable. Highly recommend

Not sure this held up to the hype. Many different points of view that are kinda sorta connected but not really. At first, I liked the idea of the novel but it just didn‘t pan out. This book was all over the place and the ending was just strange. Book #40 in 2022

Interesting, but best to be read instead of listening, is my opinion.

Going for some quick nostalgia today. I picked up the Babysitters Club book collection tin a while ago and figured I should revisit the fun of middle school. #40-2022

Book #40
✅ Chapters Have Titles: Through My Window by Ariana Godoy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
New Author
It was good. I laughed SO HARD & LOVED the 1st half. Then, it all became too repetitive. This book is SUPER smutty, which I don't mind, BUT P. Douglas comes short. It became a little TOO MUCH. Almost every chapter had explicit content/scenes to the point you didn't care anymore. I already knew what they would do & say to each other. Good book, but unrealistic.

WJCintron Besides that, I really cared about the MC and how they were developed. Even the side characters. The story kept me reading, which is good. Hence the rating. Good book, but unrealistic. 8mo

I‘m so thankful to #ReadingAfrica22 &
#Booked2022 for giving me the extra push to finally pick up this book. In the vein of what Khaled Hosseini did for Afghan women, Abi Dare does the same for Nigerian girls in this heartbreaking yet hopeful novel. Adunni the 14yr old MC has experienced more trauma and sorrow in her young life, yet her optimism and joyful spirit is infectious. I‘m so glad I added audio narration to my Kindle purchase, 👇🏽

Cinfhen because hearing the Nigerian dialect & authentic pronunciation of the Igbo & Yoruba added so much richness to the story. So grateful for my #LoudBuddyRead friends for sharing their thoughts. 11mo
RaeLovesToRead I'm only a fifth of the way in but I also was taken back to A Thousand Splendid Suns reading this far. Both books making me so so angry and conjuring the stifling and horrific realities of forced marriage. Which prompt are you using it for in #pop22? 11mo

Librarybelle I really need to read this one! 11mo
Cinfhen It‘s really good @Librarybelle I think you‘d like it 11mo
Deblovestoread I loved Adunni! The author used a deft hand in showing the horrors of being a poor female in Nigeria while keeping her dream of having and using her voice alive. It would be hard to stay hopeful with such daily abuse. 11mo
Cinfhen Adunni was the right blend of heart, humor & spunk. A great character @Kdgordon88 Im eager to continue #ReadingAfrica to discover experiences for others in different African countries 11mo

Book #40 of 2021

A unique story that draws you in and keeps you guessing all the way to the end. I loved that the protagonist is a strong and smart (yet flawed) young woman with an equally amazing friend. The mystery that unfolds is completely unexpected and was so refreshing.

Book #40: 🎧 Audiobook. As a lifelong soccer player and USWNT fan, this felt like essential reading. Rapinoe has certainly cemented herself as one of the USWNT greats and a vocal activist for human rights. I‘m impressed with the way that she has used her platform to speak about LGBTQ rights and BLM. She is also one half of my favorite women‘s sports power couple. Thanks to YouTube I was able to relive some of the epic game highlights mentioned.
