Books Read & Rating (from highest to lowest)

Inconvenient Daughter by Lauren J. Sharkey
Fiction (5 Stars)

I received a digital ARC from NetGalley & Kaylie Jones Books, and I loved it! It’s such a powerful story about a transracial adoptee searching to belong in every aspect of her life. Definitely pick up this book when it comes out! (Release date is June 23!)

Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
YA Contemporary (5 Stars)

Elizabeth Acevedo’s third novel is such a beautiful story of two sisters (living in different countries) learning about their father’s deepest secrets after his death. This is a wonderful novel written in verse!

A Woman’s Place: Inside the Fight for a Feminist Future by Kylie Cheung
Non-Fiction (5 Stars)

I received A Woman’s Place through Edelweiss and North Atlantic Books. Kylie Cheung discusses the state of feminism as it navigates the fourth wave. It was like a breath of fresh air!

Until I Find You by Rea Frey
Thriller (5 Stars)

I received a digital copy of Until I Find You from NetGalley and St. Martins Press. It’s such an amazing story of the steadfast testament of a mother’s love in the search for her son.

111 Trees: How One Village Celebrates the Birth of Every Girl by Rina Singh
Children’s Non-Fiction (5 Stars)

I received 111 Trees through Edelweiss and Kids Can Press. This is the true story of a small Indian village that went to great lengths to nurture young women and better the environment!

Maddy McGuire, CEO: Bring Back the Bees by Emma Bland Smith
Children’s Fiction (5 Stars)

I loved reading Maddy McGuire! This was part of a read aloud activity I read for students. Such an informational and diverse read!

Beach Read by Emily Henry
Contemporary Romance (4.5 Stars)

I purchased ‘Beach Read’ through Book of the Month. I really appreciated the playful banter between both characters! The personal journey January endured was also very intense!

Love, Art, and Other Obstacles by Sadira Stone
Contemporary Romance (4 Stars)

I received a copy of Love, Art, and Other Obstacles from the author. This was a fun story about two competing artists in a complicated relationship!

Starfish Pier by Irene Hannon
Contemporary Romance (3.5 Stars)

I received a copy of Starfish Pier from Revell Reads Blogger Program. I think this is the first book I received from them that I wasn’t too crazy about! Idid, however, love the ocean backdrop, and the close knit community!

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
YA Fantasy (3.5 Stars)

I really wanted to love this book! While I loved Elisabeth’s character, I felt that a lot was lacking in her development.
