(AKA: The week I fell behind on writing ARC book reviews smh)

FINISHED READING: 3

Puddin’ (Dumplin’ #2) by Julie Murphy

​Just as amazing as Dumplin’. I loved the writing. I loved the way female friendship is portrayed. I loved all the diversity. I loved getting to know Millie and Callie. I loved this book! I want more books within this beautiful universe!!! [4*]

How It Feels to Float
by Helena Fox

​About a teenage girl struggling with her mental health after the death of her father many years before. Really liked this book. RTC! (Eventually…)

As Kismet Would Have It
by Sandhya Menon

​A short story sequel to When Dimple Met Rishi. Honestly, it was pointless. But I still liked it more than the actual book lmao [3*

CURRENTLY READING: 3

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

Still making my way through this as part of a 30-Day buddy read on Instagram. About 53% through and it still hasn’t really hooked me. The husband’s secret is scandalous though…

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow

This audiobook is long but so good! It’s a nice crash course on early U.S. History. I am about 47% of the way through and absolutely enjoying it. Just worried my OverDrive loan will expire before I finish listening to it…

Del amor y otros demonios (Of Love and Other Demons) by Gabriel García Márquez

My monthly spanish read. I am completely invested in this little girl’s story but am really finding the language difficult. Whomp, whomp. 56% done. 

UPCOMING READ

No clue!

HAPPY BLOGGING EVERYONE! 😀

  1. Does the husband have a second family or something? I’m not going to read the book because I had a feeling it wouldn’t be too good, but still a girl needs to know!

    I don’t know how I could be so oblivious, but it was only when I read What if it’s us? that I realised that Hamilton! The musical is based on Alexander Hamilton. I’m going to wait for your review and see if I should read it because I’ve been going back and forth on whether I should read it.

    1. No, that’s what I thought too! When he was a teen he accidentally killed his girlfriend. But because absolutely no one knew they were a thing, he was never suspected. And her murder went unsolved. Oh, and the girl’s mom is secretary at his kid’s school. The girl’s mom suspects it was another guy (who is now the PE teacher at the school). In a fury she (the secretary/dead girl’s mom) tries to run over the gym teacher and ends up running over a little girl (the real murderer’s daughter). At the hospital he eventually confesses to her and that’s it.

      There are Hamilton references in What If It’s Us? 😮 Bumps it up tbr haha

      1. Daaaaaaaaamn. It all came full circle didn’t it, whew. The irony!

        OMG, I feel like I need to watch the musical and read the book now, everyone knows the story except me lol. There are some, mostly focuses on the music, but they don’t particularly say anything insightful other than omggggg I lurv it! 🤷🏻‍♀️
