Heart Berries: A Memoir by Terese Marie Mailhot
A memoir unlike any I’ve ever read or listened to before. Mailhot talks about her experience as a Native American woman and her mental illness. An unexpectedly poetic style. Took a bit of getting used to. But a nice experience. Even though the subject matter was a bit tough at times. [3*]
Lady Susan/The Watsons/Sanditon by Jane Austen
Three semi-finished manuscripts. Lady Susan is written in epistolary form and has an evil MC. The Watsons gave me Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park vibes. Sanditon has a half-mulatto character. The most diversity I’ve ever encountered in a Jane Austen novel. It would have been interesting to see what she did with the character. [3*]
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
I got an ARC through First to Read and I am forever thankful because I devoured this book! Esme is a strong, single mother who takes every opportunity offered to better herself and provide for her family. Adored her. And I absolutely swooned over Khai. Full Review To Come 😉
