I don't really shy away from harder, tougher reads, but I practically JUMPED for this one. The Sky Is Mine has a lot of taboo subjects, but the book itself is definitely one to talk about. Shout about even.
I was in total awe of the cover the first time I stumbled upon The Gilded Wolves. As you all know, I'm usually not that big on historical fiction but.. First the cover, then the blurb and.. I was sold?
Starfish has been recommended to me by a ton of people - the most persistent one being Marie - so I'm happy to say I finally read it and I'm so happy all of you pushed me to read it! I knew I was going to like it, but it still managed to blow all my expectations to pieces. That and this book ended up meaning the world to me. Easily one of my favorites so far!
I feel like I pretty much have to point out how I loved Queens of Geek and how I seriously could not wait to read The Brightsiders as soon as I found out about it. Granted, it took me a bit before I picked it up, but I did! And... Here's my review!
The first thing popping to mind when I saw this book on NetGalley, was “I know this woman!” but I couldn’t remember where I’d seen her. It didn’t took me long to realize she played Precious in the movie Precious. As if I wasn’t convinced to read this one yet, that definitely did it. I was totally ready to find out how Gabourey Sidibe became an actress, how her life was before and after.
