Fangirl Moments and My Two Cents

I read a bit of everything.

Undeserving - Madeline Sheehan

This book was so much more than I was expecting. Even though I've loved the series, and it's one of my most favorites, I didn't know if I would be that interested in Preacher's tale compared to the others. It was amazing. I love when a story makes me feel, and this book had all the feels. My eyes were pretty watery for some of it. This series has great world building. I know the characters, and I love them (or hate, or pity, etc). It's easy to get caught up. The emotions are not simple either. The characters are flawed people that don't always have HEA, just like real life. My eyes are trying to tear up now just thinking about it. I definitely recommend Underserving and all the Undeniable Series books.

Anatomy of a Scandal: A Novel - Sarah Vaughan
Anatomy of a Scandal revolves around a trial. A politician has been accused of rape by a woman who works under him. To make things more blurry, they had previously had an affair, and he's married with children. The book is written from the points of view of the politician, his wife and the prosecuting attorney. As the story goes, you learn more about each of their backstories and how they are connected. It's mostly an internal storyline. There's not much action. Your inside their heads, especially the women. The deeper you get, the more you choose to judge or sympathize with the way they feel and act. I've seen this listed as a thriller and suspense, but I would categorize it more as drama.

Macbeth - William Shakespeare Classic that has influenced so many stories. Definite must read.

The Mist

The Mist - Stephen King 3.75 stars

He does such a good job of making the characters seem real. Like you know people who would behave this way. This book held my attention. I couldn't read it at night lol.

Being Jazz: My Life as a (Transgender) Teen

Being Jazz: My Life as a (Transgender) Teen - Jazz Jennings I don't watch reality tv so reading this was my introduction to Jazz. It's awesome that she has been able to do so much for others who don't have the voice and support she has had. This was interesting to me but the best audience would be younger than me. It's about a lot of the things children and teens go through from the perspective of someone transgender.

Girls Like Us

Girls Like Us - Gail Giles I don't have a lot of experience with intellectual disabilities so this was good for me. It's from the POV of 2 girls. Both have disabilities of varying degrees. Definitely pulled on my emotions.

Doctor Cerberus

Doctor Cerberus - Roberto Aquirre-sacasa, Adam Arkin, Simon Helberg, JoBeth Williams This is about a boy who's figuring himself out. It's about him being gay but also about many other things to do with growing up. There's a lot of family interaction. Many parts are like one of those 30 minute family sitcom type tv shows. Other parts go a little deeper.
Thanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years - David Litt
Thanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House YearsThanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years by David Litt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is full of politics, but it's still funny and interesting. It tells the sides of things the public doesn't see. It also gives insider info on what the Obama administration was like.

Dark Horse (Whitehorse, Montana: The McGraw Kidnapping) - B.J. Daniels
Dark Horse (Whitehorse, Montana: The McGraw Kidnapping, #1)Dark Horse by B.J. Daniels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dark Horse is the first book in Whitehorse, Montana: The McGraw Kidnapping series. Each installment is about a McGraw brother finding romance. Dark Horse is Cull's account. He's the oldest and isn't looking for the attraction he feels for Nikki. For me, the romance is just a bit of side narrative. The main focus is the puzzle of the kidnapping and possible murder of the two youngest siblings which happened 25 years ago. Nikki is a true crime writer. She is known for helping to solve old mysteries while doing research to write her novels. I'm crazy about Nikki and really enjoyed following her investigation. She's very likeable, and there are some eerie and exciting occurrences along the way. This is an interesting whodunit, and it left me wanting to continue to find out what's next for the McGraw family.

Citywide - Santino Hassell I read this so long ago. I loved the rest of the series and couldn't wait for more. I didn't love this one, but I did like it. Around the time that I read it, all kinds of things came out about the author. It really ruined my experience so I wasn't able to leave a review at the time.

Whatever You Say I Am: The Life and Times of Eminem

Whatever You Say I Am: The Life and Times of Eminem - Anthony Bozza I love Eminem so this was so fascinating. Eminem in the modern era is so private, but when this book was written, the author actually got to hang with him multiple times in varied locations and interview him. It's majorly interesting.

The Way I Am

The Way I Am - Eminem Eminem is so private. This is stories from him after Proof's death so it's gold. Actual stories from the man.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red - Sandra Brown I really liked this. It definitely made me want to read more from this author. The mystery is good. It twists around but doesn't get too crazy. The leads are easy to like. It's sexy but not all about the sex.

The Maltese Falcon

The Maltese Falcon - Dashiell Hammett I enjoyed this one because it's so weird lol. Is it supposed to be suspenseful or some type of comedy? *Shrugs*

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou Finding out more about this author's life is always interesting. She tells about the good and the bad and how she felt, and she always seems to keep a good outlook on life. It helps me to get over some of the petty things in my own life.


Illuminae - Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman 4.5 stars

This book is awesome. I didn't have it figured out at all. Everything was fresh for me. It's in the future. People are in space. It's the files of a tragedy and a sort of government or company cover-up. But this is the files of what really happened and fighting back. The AI aspect is so interesting also, the way that it becomes so human.
