The Vanishing Half

If you’re looking for a big ending, don’t expect it with this book. The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett was decent, but I think how it ended is what makes everyone, including myself feel like… eh.

Love Radio by Ebony LaDelle was light-hearted and funny. Even though Prince could give everyone else advice, when it came to Dani, he was stuck like a deer in headlights! Dani challenged Prince to take her on three dates, and within those three dates she “should’ve” fallen in love with him. I appreciated that EbonyContinue reading “Love Radio”

a stolen life; My Thoughts Memoir.

a stolen life by Jaycee Dugard was suggested to me by a co-worker. She gave me a list of books to read that she deemed as ‘deep’ and ‘heart-wrenching’ so I gave it a chance.
