So here’s another review of some books I’ve read or listened to. I’ll rate each book from 1 to 5 ⭐️and give my honest review.
So, funny story I purchased “Miracle on 49th street” at my local thrift shop for $1 mostly for bedside decor; but i decided to pick it up and read it and found that I truly liked the story. Its a book thats good for all ages and youthful; however, I think adults would like it too. Such a sweet story. Here’s a little bit of the story: Twelve-year-old orphan Molly Parker reads her mother’s parting letter (single mom just died of cancer) naming her real father (Boston Celtics superstar Josh Cameron), and against the wishes of her guardian (Mom’s wealthy best friend from college) she teams up with her best friend (homely but loyal wisecracking Sam) to convince Josh he’s her father. I’ll stop here and let you check it out on your own. I’ll give this book 4.5 ⭐️.
Next up is ” New Year’s Kiss.” I loved this book too, it also has some youthfulness. But I love the storyline and it takes place in the wintertime so its perfect. Here’s a little bit of the story: Tess and her opinionated older sister Lauren are spending the week at the snowy Evergreen Lodge in Vermont–and they aren’t happy about it. Their stern grandmother, who owns the holiday resort, is not known for her warmth and good humor. But when shy, straight-laced Tess meets Christopher in the lobby, things are suddenly looking up. I’ll give this book 5 ⭐️.
Next up is “Dollbaby.” I love listening to books based on history and the civil rights and slavery era. And I love books based in the south. Being a southern girl, I can relate to the *lingo and the food spoken about in the books is also relatable. Here’s a little bit about the book:
A big-hearted coming-of-age debut set in civil rights-era New Orleans – a novel of Southern eccentricity and secrets.
When Ibby Bell’s father dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1964, her mother unceremoniously deposits Ibby with her eccentric grandmother Fannie and throws in her father’s urn for good measure. Fannie’s New Orleans house is like no place Ibby has ever been – and Fannie, who has a tendency to end up in the local asylum – is like no one she has ever met.
I’ll give this book 4⭐️.
There are a few books that I want to purchase and read soon. As soon as I do I’ll write another book review blogpost. Here are few on my * To read list: The real Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy, Eliza Starts a Rumor . I’m currently in the middle of some audiobooks- I’l keep you posted. What have you been reading lately? Any recommendations?
