Spring in Lilac Glen (A Moonlit Hearts Romance) by Angie Ellington
Spring in Lilac Glen: (A sweet feel good romance) (A Moonlit Hearts Romance Book 3) - Angie Ellington

 

Before discovering Lilac Glen, I was not aware of Angie Ellington. That however is about to change. Spring in Lilac Glen is a refreshing look at days gone by and life yet lived. Julianne and Tucker have lessons to learn, hopes to fulfill and a happily ever after to discover. This story of faith and promise is delivered with sweet words of wisdom. The little nuggets that we know to be true, but neglect to acknowledge. The best words of wisdom are there if you read between the lines. My take way: In order to appreciate the little things, let go of the big things. Important words in a lighthearted package.

Murder on the Sugarland Express
Murder on the Sugarland Express - Angie Fox

I love this series, it’s like a bag of potato chips – can’t put it down! The exciting plot is the real star of this book. A well crafted homage to the iconic Murder on the Orient Express, the rip-roaring dual plot combined a long ago ghostly unsolved murder with a current day murder under similar circumstances. Fast-paced with an ending that left my heart racing, it was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable and I admit, I was surprised by whodunit and why. It was an exceptionally well done mystery that even Agatha would appreciate!

 

The ghostly victims of the first derailment returning to the scene of te crime (complete with a Poirot-esque police inspector!) and the thrilling solve of the first case was entertaining (I loved how The Green Lady redeemed herself at the end!) but it was the modern day murder that tugged at my heart, thanks to the great characters, I love how they’ve progressed as the series goes on; all of them have grown to become vivid and realistic and darn it, so likable (even Virginia!) They’re all the reason I eagerly come back with each new book.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas

A lot of people have already written great reviews of this book. I highly recommend Obsidian Blue's review, which you can find here, as an example of strong review. I'm not going to try to outdo the reviews that have already been written, so think of this as my voice added to the chorus, focused specifically on how the book resonated with me.

 

Angie Thomas has a gift for characterization and a unique narrative voice. Starr, the main character, was complex, convincing and compelling. She infused her characters with realism and her settings with the kinds of details that make a place come alive. Nothing is one dimensional for Angie Thomas, or even for Starr. She doesn't insult her readers by suggesting that complex questions are simple.

 

I devoured this book, reading it in about two hours. I was immersed in Starr's world. This book is the reason that #weneeddiversebooks. I need diverse books. Hearing Starr's voice has, in a very real way, changed my perspective. She provided me - 51 year old white lady - with a window into her world. I can only imagine that if I were a young black girl, having her as a mirror would be immeasurably satisfying.

 

Anyway, read Obsidian's review. And then read this book.

Need a Laugh? Check out My Big Fat Demon Slayer Wedding by Angie Fox @AngieFoxauthor
My Big Fat Demon Slayer Wedding - Angie Fox

I was looking for something easy to read and all I had to do is sit back and enjoy.   Well, My Big Fat Demon Slayer Wedding by Angie Fox was just the ticket.

 

My Big Fat Demon Slayer Wedding (Demon Slayer, #5)

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

Outrageously funny band of biker bitches witches help Lizzie battle the evil Earl and plan her wedding kept me laughing, because of its cast of quirky characters with magical spells that don’t always work the way they should and creatures that cover the supernatural world.

 

I picked this up on an Amazon free day and I’m glad it didn’t get buried in my Kindle.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  3 Stars

The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas

Wow. This book was phenomenal. it completely lived up to the hype.

 

I have a lot of thoughts on this so here they are (keep in mind this is coming from an Asian American from the Bay Area):

 

I loved how educational it was. It really made you understand the Black Lives Matter movement and the reality of it. It hit every single point and put you right in the middle of it.

I also liked how Angie Thomas made brought up big points in really subtle ways. For example, “Funny how it works with white kids though. It’s dope to be black until it’s hard to be black” (11). That is so true. People only like black culture when it’s cool , but the minute something bad happens to the black community, they distance themselves from it. But the quote that really hit hard was, “Funny. Slave masters thought they were making a difference in black people’s lives too. Saving them from their ‘wild African ways.’ Same Shit, different century. I wish people them would stop thinking that people like me need saving” (246). I read that quote and was like, damn, preach it girl!

 

The minority alliance between Starr and Maya made me so happy. It was so good to see a black girl and her Asian best friend team up. Angie Thomas could have done a bit more with it, but it was still nice to see it included. Personally, I think we need more minority alliances because there is more that unites us than divides us and together we can make a big impact. #Asians4BlackLives

 

I also liked that this tackled interracial dating. It added an extra layer to the complexity of this novel.

 

The pop culture references were a really nice and unexpected touch. I was definitely not expecting High School Musical and the Jonas Brothers to be mentioned in this book.

 

Overall, this book was everything. It should be taught in schools because despite being fiction, it was so informative, thought provoking, and leaves the door open for a lot of discussion.
