This is an interesting story about how dangerous it can get when the leaders become too powerful by using shame and fear, esp in a religious setting. There were parts where the main character seemed too passive, too peripheral to the story. I would have loved to have witness more of an internal battle that I‘m sure he would have experienced but it‘s a minor critique. Overall, I felt the story was captivating and strong.

I received another book via #netgalley. It's about woman and their opinion of themselves.
Taryn made a movie about women and why they don't like their bodies. She talks to different women within the book and tries to analyse, why diets don't work and why every woman should love herself. It was a "ok" for, sometimes it was too emotional...

Just read how this is based on the author‘s own personal tragedy, her husband‘s 12 hour standoff with the police, his suicide and the impact this tragic event had on her family. My heart goes out to her and her family. Unfortunately, it doesn‘t make me like this novel more. Truth be told, I didn‘t enjoy it and skimmed through large sections without having missed much. A lot of writing about nothing. ⭐️⭐️ #netgalley #reviewathon

And there goes another one that has me crying as I‘m finishing up. I try to read a lot about WW2 - fiction and nonfiction - because I never want to forget about the things my country has done. There is no use in pretending like there isn‘t any dark history there. But it never gets any easier to read about it. Cilka is waiting as one of my #netgalley books so that one will be up soon. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

An eye-opening book that chronicles Jensen's journey from his humble beginnings as an investigative journalist to how he later on known as the world's first digital "consulting detective." This is a part true crime book and part memoir.

Rating: 4⭐

All Your Perfects | Colleen Hoover

I am not a reader of romance novels but I will make an exception for Colleen Hoover. Another tearjerker about a couple‘s struggles with infertility. Her writing is impeccably gut wrenching, soul crushing and left me devastated and completely gutted. Not to be read without a box of Kleenex and not to be read in public, unless you enjoy being stared at while you ugly cry. Don‘t say I didn‘t warn you! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #netgalley #reviewathon

⭐️⭐️ I disliked this in the same way I disliked Maggie O‘Farrell‘s I AM, I AM, I AM. Those were not all brushes with death and these are not all horror stories. Literary gimmicks annoy the hell out of me, especially in memoir. Massive Liz Phair fans will probably like this, but even though the writing is decent, the stories are tedious.

PUB DATE: 10.8.19

Megabooks Love this review! I really loved I am, I am, I am, but I think it was O‘Farrell‘s writing that saved it. Something about her rhythm jives with me. Unless Phair got a really good ghost writer, I‘m going to be wary of this one. 1d
britt_brooke @Megabooks Thanks! 😄 I‘d be curious to hear what you think about this one. And I do agree that O‘Farrell writes beautifully. That book just didn‘t do it for me. 😉 1d
