A Woman Is No Man Book Review

Book review by Dinh

4.5 stars out of 5 stars

Review:

I always look forward to reading a book about different traditions and cultures. Etaf Rum’s debut novel A Woman Is No Man hits that mark with a story about three generations of Palestinian- American women.

There’s been a lot of praises for this book so I was eager to see if they were correct.

Was it worthy of all the praises? Most definitely yes! You know it’s a really good book when it gives you all the feels. Emotionally I bounce between sad and mad. Regardless, my heart was squeezed throughout this book. It was a gut wrenching book!

Love Lettering Book Review

Review:

I am not a big romance reader in general and don’t go out of my way to find romance books to read. In recent years I have branched out of my comfort zone and made myself choose a few a year to read.

I mainly get disappointed with romance novels in general but sometimes I hit the jackpot with a good one!

The Only Woman In The Room Book Review

Review:

I do so love reading about women who have made an impact in the world! Their contributions to the world are not always well known and it’s refreshing to discover historical women and see them in a different perspective.

A few years back I read Enchantress of Numbers by Jennifer Chiaverini which was an interesting read on the unrecognized accomplishments of Ada Byron King, who is considered to be the first computer programmer.

American Dirt Book Review

Book review by Dinh.

5 out of 5 stars

Read synopsis here.

Review:

I was super excited to read American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins because of the controversy surrounding it. The book has been criticized because the author is white, not an immigrant, and her her use of stereotypes exploits Mexican immigrants, in addition to depicting an unauthentic story.

I really didn’t pay attention to these criticism as this novel is a work of fiction. All authors have the liberty to use their imagination. Cummins did do 5 years of research before completing this book and judging the author because she is not an immigrant is ridiculous.

Review:

The Liar’s Girl was my introduction to Catherine Ryan Howard.

I was looking forward to reading this book because it was nominated for the Edgar Award in 2019. Also I was keen on digging in a book set in Dublin, Ireland and by an Irish author.

The book also had rave reviews from the book community so I was eager to read it to see if it would live up to its hype.
