A Review: “What You Wish For” by Katherine Center

Happy New Year! We're less than a week in, and 2022 has not been kind. My husband and I spent the last week sick with COVID-19, but thankfully, we have recovered. I'm stuck in quarantine for the next seven days, but on the bright side, I've been able to catch up on some reading.

Hello, fellow bookworms! I can't believe December is already here! I'm so excited for Christmas and have already done most of my shopping.

In this post,… Continue reading My December Book of the Month Pick

A Review: “How to Walk Away” by Katherine Center

OK, I'm so excited to write this book review because (knock on wood) this might be the best (most enjoyable) book I've read this year!

Here is the book's description: "Margaret Jacobsen is just about to… Continue reading A Review: “How to Walk Away” by Katherine Center

This book is what I chose for my September Book of the Month. Set in Nigeria, the plot takes the reader on a journey to an affluent neighborhood and large family estate of the Jolades.

Warning: Spoiler alert ahead, if you have not read this book!

A Review: “Sisters in Arms” by Kaia Alderson

This book was my July Book of the Month pick! I chose this book because I've never read anything about the black women officers during the WWII era, and I thought this would be an interesting read. This book - although it had its flaws - was an enjoyable read for me. I really enjoyed… Continue reading A Review: “Sisters in Arms” by Kaia Alderson

DNF: Artemis by Andy Weir

I bought this book back in May when we visited Branson, MO, and was excited to read a novel by Andy Weir since his big success from The Martian, which I did not read. I also bought this one since I share the same name as the main character, Jasmine. This, however, was a disappointment.… Continue reading DNF: Artemis by Andy Weir

A Review: “Party of Two” by Jasmine Guillory

This is my first time reading a book by Jasmine Guillory, a black chick-lit author who has gained popularity in recent years. I had seen her adorable book covers and always thought I'd like to read one. I decided on Party of Two mainly because it featured an interracial couple, Max and Olivia. Max is… Continue reading A Review: “Party of Two” by Jasmine Guillory
