⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
A great book telling an important story about race. After reading a few non fiction books about race, this was a nice departure into fiction. It took a lighter story to touch on heavy and important ideas. It made me examine how I react to race in my day to day life and in my relationships.

This was a powerful book. I stopped often to write down quotes. This should be required reading for everyone, especially white women.

Loved this book! What a fascinating look into an alternate reality where George Washington became King George the First instead of President Washington. Really cannot WAIT for Majesty to come out Sept 1st!!!

This was a great read. There was one minor story line that I did not like nor did I feel it needed to be included. Beyond that I was glad to find a great story that was different enough from the Netflix series that it kept me interested and guessing. Will be reading the next in the series!

The book was a good start to the series, but there were some aspects that just didn‘t age well. Will continue to read the series though.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 This book checked most of my boxes for this genre. Make it a more diverse cast of characters with a more experienced heroine and it would have them all. This one will be a reread on the days I need an escape. I finished it in roughly 24 hours. #romance #explicit

This deep dive into the lives of both teens involved in the situation really shows how much more there is to a story than what is on the surface.

Trying to finish the prompts for #Booked2020Spring. This book is a powerful memoir that takes you in the Cambodian communist regime and genocide from a child‘s point of view. Definitely not an easy read, but an important one.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Good job—this is such a tough prompt. 2y

Curiouser_and_curiouser I've got this on my shelf. I'll need to be in a strong place when I start this one. The movie was hard enough. 2y

Educated: A Memoir | Tara Westover
post image
Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 This book lived up to the expectations. An absolutely amazing read. I didn‘t have a similar childhood or life as Tara, but the way she spoke about her trauma and how she dealt with it (good and bad) really resonated with me and my trauma. The importance of education was always emphasized in my home, and this book really highlights that.
