MY TOP 5 READS OF 2020

So I posted a lot of book reviews on the blog this year. Especially near the end of the year. Like that is all I posted at one point. That was because I had a goal of reading 20 books for 2020. Now in reality that is not a lot of books (I feel). This […]

Untamed by Glennon Doyle

The latest book for me to review is Untamed. There is a pretty good chance you have probably seen it or heard of it because it is quite popular. The only reason I am able to write this review right now is because I got a skip the line copy from the library ( I […]

Between the World and Me by Ta-nehisi Coates

On my continued journey of unlearning societal racism and learning to be a better ally I came across the book Between the World and Me by Ta-nehisi Coates. This book is different than any other book that I have read because it is a letter to Ta-nehisi’s son. Although this did confuse me for a […]

Braiding Sweetgrass by: Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer

I have heard so many good things about this book! I kept seeing people suggest it and so naturally I was pretty pumped to get my hands on it. When the time came and I got my notification from the library I was like YESSSSS! Unfortunately, I only had it for 14 days which was […]

Here we are again! Another book review. I would like to pat myself on the back because I have been doing so good at reading all the books. Although I have also gotten super overwhelmed because I put a butt tonne of holds on books and they are all coming up to be read! Eeeek! Thankfully, I am able to delay them a bit. whew!

A bit about the author first! Celeste was actually raised in the city that is featured in the novel, Shaker Heights. This book is her second novel. Little Fires Everywhere was made into a TV show on Hulu in 2020.

I have not seen the TV show so I really didn’t know what this book was about. From stuff I had heard I thought this book was about something totally different so maybe I was thinking of another book? Anywho on to the review.

Little fires everywhere is a book about two very different families whose lives get entangled because of their children. As soon as a museum picture is found of one of the mothers, the other is off on a journey to dig up her past and find out who she really is.

I really did enjoy this book, it has been a while since I have read anything that is more fiction and lighthearted. Don’t get me wrong there is some talk of abortion and some other stuff that might be a bit hard for some but such topics are not hard for me.

The only thing that I didn’t enjoy in the book was when it the the sort of mystery was figured out, I did not get that oh damnnnnnn feeling. It was not powerful enough for me, I wanted a bigger mystery. The ending was also a bit underwhelming also. I won’t spoil it for anyone! Don’t worry.

I found that the book was very well written though and was smooth enough to keep me captivated the entire book. I just wanted more. It was still a great book and recommend it for anyone so it gets four stars!

Welp that is it for now look out for more book reviews cause I got those stacking up again. I am trying to incorporate other blog posts in between them though so look out for those also!

Until next time!

BAD BLOOD BY: JOHN CARREYROU

Finally, my last book from the back log of books that I read over the past month! I read this book firstly based on its title. It just intrigued me. Once I figured it out that it was about a silicon valley start-up, I immediately knew which company it was about only because my friend […]

ARTEMIS BY: ANDY WEIR

So when I finished Pandemic (my last book review) I wanted to read something else immediately. I have been unsuccessful in finding a free e-book version of Genome (second book to Pandemic), so I needed to find something else to satisfy my reading hunger. I decided to look and see what my local library had […]
