Finished Reads #1

So far 2017 has been a bossome reading year, and it can only get better from here. This post highlights the books I’ve read and completed.

chasing Chasing Moonlight by Raven St. Pierre- This novel was well written and expertly  researched. It’s obvious that a lot of time and thought went into this book. Historical romances aren’t really my thing, but after reading Chasing Moonlight my mind has been changed. The story is about the undeniable connection and love between Quinn, and Jesse. Being an interracial couple in the forties was understandably problematic, and Ms. St. Pierre definitely exposes the reader to the harshness of that time. The love between Quinn and Jesse was just what I needed to lose myself in, especially because of all the bs going on currently in the world. 5 Stars

prep Prep & Prejudice by Miren B. Flores- I enjoy Ms. Flores’ writing style. Her characters are always so relatable. Andrea- our main protagonist, takes a much needed vacation and runs into someone from her past. What happens next is a totally fun and romantic story. 3 Stars

you-getYou Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense by Charles Bukowski- I adore this poetry collection so much! Mr. Bukowski’s poetry is guttural and addictive. I haven’t had my fill and I’m still wanting more. He had such a fantastic way with words, and seemed like a really cool dude. The man was just so real. No bullshit. No pretenses. Just straight truth and realness. 5 Stars

la Collecting The Pieces by L. A. Fiore- In the tale of a woman finding love twice, Ms. Fiore takes the reader on a trip to “The damn feels” island. This novel had my emotions all over the damn place. After reading certain chapters I felt drained and completely gutted. Ms. Fiore took a set of circumstances that could’ve been translated poorly, and made it believable. I rooted for Sidney- the main protagonist, and I wanted her to overcome and succeed. 4.5 Stars

Cheers, homies!
