Thursday, June 29, 2017

A Stolen Life - (Synopsis: In the summer of June of 1991, I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother that loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen. for eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugald. I don't think of myself as a victim, I simply survived an intolerable situation. A stolen life is my story - in my own word, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.)

     A Stolen Life is a memoir based on Jaycee Dugard abduction back in 1991, Jaycee did not hold back in her book. She helped her readers by giving a detail understanding of what it was to be held captive for almost two decades. Although the book can be very disturbing and at time disgusting based on her abductor actions, you can't help but feel inspired by Jaycee strength and resilience. 

Book Review | Small Great Things

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult - (Synopsis: Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more the twenty years' experience. During her shit, Ruth begins a routine checkup on newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Dose she obey orders or does she intervene?)

           I loved this book!!!!! I give it five out of five stars, this book is written in three perspectives. Ruth the African American nurse, Kenndy her lawyer & Turk the white supremacists. I don't want to say much with out giving any spoiler alerts! But this book really helped capture what is going on in today society when it comes to culture, racism and acceptance. 

Book review | The Couple Next Door

The Couple Next Door By Shari Lapena - (Synopsis: Anna and Marco Conti seem to have it all–a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one hot summer night they are invited to a dinner party next door, and a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story. Inside the Contis' curtained house, an unsettling story of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they've kept for years which follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family–a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.)

        Wow! this book was awesome, super relatable whether you're a parent or not but really hits home if you're a mom. I really connected with Anna's character, her thoughts were so raw and filled with emotions. It was a huge page turner, with each page you discovered something new a clue or an idea of who done it. The end was nothing expected, totally recommend this book to those who loved Gone Girl or The Girl on The Train.
