A Girl Named Rainbow By Krystaelynne Sanders Diggs| #bookreview #netgalley #agirlnamedtainbow

My thoughts/ review:

This is a really cute uplifting children’s book about a little girl named Rainbow and how she one day doesn’t like her name because she keeps getting teased at school. Her mom helps her change her mind about her name and helps her to love the name she was given. This book was done really well I loved illustrations and how colorful and bright they were. I believe this book can help young children with self esteem issues as well as self love. I think young children need more books like this, especially when the media is telling young kids to be and act a certain way instead of learning to love themselves.

Rating: 4.75 ⭐

The old man is trying to remember and reflect on what seems the best memories he had with his family, and he is holding on to that.

I actually really enjoyed reading this I also liked the artwork in the story which gave this novella a nice touch. In the near future I would like to read more of this author’s work since I enjoyed reading his shorter book.

SYNOPSIS FOR AND EVERY MORNING THE WAY HOME GETS LONGER AND LONGER

From the Notebooks of Melanin Sun by Jacqueline Woodson | #bookreview #blackauthors #bipoc #lgbt

My Thoughts/Review:

I really enjoyed this. This story dives deep into family and what family can really be, also talks about sexuality. Melanin Sun aka Mel is a 13 year old boy living in Brooklyn NY with is mom who he is really close with. In the story Mel’s mom (EC) tells him that she is gay and this changes everything for Mel.

He wonders what his friends, his neighborhood, and even the girl that he likes will think of him. At this point Mel hates his mom for being gay and and wishes it wasn’t true. 

Mel learnes that he can still be there for his mom even though she is gay he just will have to adjust which will take some time.

This story focused on the what family is and who your real friends are and just not caring what other people who really don’t matter have to say.

Mel enjoys writing in his notes books personal things and to help him get though all the new changes he writes.

Good story. I like that this was a challenging topic especially for teenagers.

Grading Curves by Naima Simone |#Bookreview #romancereader

My Thoughts/Review:

This is a Read me romance podcast novella. I really enjoyed reading this story, this is the story of Nikki and Dean. Nikki is just trying to start brand new with a new job in a new town. She walks into a tattoo shop to get a tattoo for saying goodbye to her old life and old way of being.

She meets Dean her tattoo artist and they immediately have an attraction. They end up meeting again when Dean start classes at college not knowing Nikki is his professor.

This was a fun teacher -student story that actually seemed realistic. It was fun to know more of a background of Nikki as well as Dean on their issues outside of them wanting to be together.

I will definitely be reading more from this author.

My rating: 4.75 ⭐

Rules of The Friend-Zone By Kat Baxter | #BookReview

My Thoughts/ Review:

This is a “Read Me Romance” podcast book that I chose randomly. I told myself I wanted to start reading the books from the podcast this year, so I just chose this to start with.
This Piper and Dylan’s story. Piper and Dylan are best friends have been since the early years of college. They both love each other but don’t want to cross that line and potentially ruin their friendship.
I enjoyed the ending to this story it was nice HEA and overall a sweet story. I like that the story mentioned a snowstorm because at the time of me reading this the north east in the US is experiencing snow and cold weather so I feel this story fit right in.
In the end I rate this a 4.5⭐ it was nice and cute and with a good ending.

#BookReview | Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon

My Thoughts/ Review:

This was my first sci-fi romance and I have to say I actually enjoyed it. I put off reading this because I felt I wouldn’t like it, mainly because it’s so hyped up right now and I can see why.

This is about a woman named Georgie who is basically kidnapped on a spaceship with other woman she doesn’t know. She doesn’t know how she got there or where she is going all she know is she is surrounded by little green men that has full control over her and the other girls.

In the book Georgie is basically taken by a big blue guy with horns and tail ..his name is Vektal and he is obsessed with Georgie. He wants to make sure she and protected and wants to make sure while she is living on this ice planet that she is happy.

I liked how imaginative the story was and just how different it was too. The author made it easy to under the world and words to describe other elements of the world. I can definitely see myself reading more into this series. 

4.5 ⭐

#BookReview Her Night With Santa by Adriana Herrera

My thoughts (review)

This was my first retelling told in a erotic way. This is about Farnaz coming to stay at her uncle’s friends house for a night. Her uncle is best friends with kris kringle, and he has a daughter …her name is Kristina and she is the new Santa in charge of the toy run. Farnaz uncle had her stay at Kris kringle beach house for a night to get away from a her family during the holidays, over her bad choice to leave her job to sell adult toys.
And this is where Kristina catches Farnaz in the act at her dad’s beach house. Overall this was written well and it’s different than anything I would normally pick up. Andrea Herrera is a new to me author and I’m glad I picked this one up.
I do like the element of the fairytale of a female Santa that element I felt was different a cool.

***This is a female/female erotica so please be aware that there is language and sexual topics being discussed thoughout this novella.**

I enjoyed this novella, 4⭐
