The above link brings up a video interview with Angie Thomas whose new book, Concrete Rose, came out last month. I haven’t read the book yet, but I have enjoyed her other books. They give you something to think about. I look forward to reading the new book.
This is the second book in the series. If I hadn’t read the first book right before starting this book, I wouldn’t have known what was going on. The story seemed forced after the memory part of the story was done. I enjoyed this story less than the first one, but I felt that I needed to know how the first story ended up after the cliffhanger ending.
I enjoyed almost everything about this book. I had to suspend belief that a writer could completely forget about her phone and laptop for several days. Also, I was not thrilled about the ending. I had no choice but to get the next book in the series. I needed to know what happened. If you’re willing to invest in the whole series, then I’d recommend this mostly romance, somewhat suspenseful mystery book.
I picked this up as a palate cleanser between bookclub books. It was included with my Audible subscription, and it was short. It was the perfect time to read it.
This was a light epistolary book about a couple going through a divorce during Covid times. It addresses many of the difficulties with life in during this time, along with general difficulties of time management.
I think that it was well written and hit many points that I hadn’t thought of. Plus it kept my interest for the whole story.
This is a well-written, well-researched book about RBG. It covers mostly her professional life, but it also covers her family life. I enjoyed the story and was never bored during it.
RBG was a remarkable woman and this book shows many of the things that she did in working toward making human rights more equal. I recommend the book highly.
I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations were wonderful and the story itself was fun but not too silly. It was clear that the story was a dream and not just a weird thing that happened. Children would love to have this story read to them and the adult reading would not be bored.
Linked above is an article with an interview featuring Angie Thomas, the author of The Hate You Give. Her new book, Concrete Rose, is a prequel to her best selling book and was released in mid-January. I look forward to reading it when it becomes available at the library.
I picked this one up because it was free with my Audible subscription, and it was short. I don’t really plan on ever doing standup, but this book gave some great ideas for those people who do. It was presented in a fun way, and kept me entertained. It wasn’t the book for me, though.

“Thank you so much for reading/reviewing my children’s books last year.
I’m running an ad in Publishers Weekly’s children’s book edition next month and trying to build more reviews (Amazon, Goodreads or social media posts) 🥰
If you know avid readers, parents or teachers who might be interested in reviewing my books, could you please share my information?”
