The Meaning of Matthew: My Son's Murder in Laramie, and a World Transformed - Judy Shepard

I can't write a review for this. I can't rate it either. I'm too emotional.
All I can say is seriously, read this book. Please.

The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend
The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend - Tom Clavin,Bob Drury

While advertised as an untold biography of Red Cloud, and it does definitely touch on his life, I would say this is more of a history book. Interesting to read, but a bit dry at times.

The Complete Persepolis - Marjane Satrapi

Wow. I just.... Wow. Hot damn. I was not expecting such a strong emotional attachment to this book.

 

I can't even form coherent thoughts right now. Just read this book, you won't regret it.

Ballots for Belva by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen
Ballots for Belva: The True Story of a Woman's Race for the Presidency - Courtney A. Martin,Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen,Courtney E. Martin

A great book to learn quickly learn some about Belva Lockwood, a woman who ran for President in the 1880s! Of course, she was not the first - Victoria Woodhull was - but you have to admit it took a lot of guts for her to run, especially considering the time she lived in.

 

I plan on reading more about this amazing woman.

Troublemaker by Leah Remini
Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology - Rebecca Paley,Leah Remini
I love King of Queens. It is a show I've watched often and really enjoy. I knew Leah Remini was a Scientologist but never paid much mind to it. And honestly, I've always been a bit curious about Scientology because - and let's be honest - it is strange.

And I decided to read this because I was curious what Leah had to say about Scientology. But this book is about more than just that, of course. It details Leah's childhood, life growing up, her career as well as life in Scientology. I enjoyed just reading about her life in general.

I knew some about Scientology but had a limited knowledge prior to reading this book. I have to say that I don't blame her for leaving the church. And it is something I would never join.

An enjoyable biography by a good and funny actress.
