    January was such an amazing reading month for me and I hope this energy continues for the rest of 2019.  Overall, I read 14 books majority were four and five stars- most of them got under my skin and stayed there. Every January there is a list of books I re-read to get my year […]

    I could not wait to get my hands on a copy of Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams mainly because the main character is a Jamaican. I was also drawn to this book because it is being dubbed as “Bridget Jones meets Americanah” and while I see why that is the case, in some (most) instances I […]

    In October I read 17 books, not as much as I wanted to, but according to Goodreads, I am still on track. (Yay). I am not sure if it is just me, but October went by so fast and all the reading I had planned to do did not happen. I think I just needed […]
