Such a fascinating read, and a bit of a shocker... truly a wonder to know that during that time, there was once a woman trapped in a man's body who would dare defy the odds of letting that person out.

I know this novel that loosely based on a real li

Omg, another book I failed to update. Anyway, the idea of this book was certainly a new take on the dystopian genre, which certainly piqued my interest, but the thing about dystopia is that every flow is the same, regardless of its plot. I found some ...more

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

It was a very engaging read and I did appreciate that the author included history about the people he was with, but somewhere along the course of the story, I felt it was a bit anticlimactic.

As someone looking from the outside, it sure was easy to p

Such an insightful read... I have read and watched stories about Cancer, but reading a real-life account of how it was to live with cancer made me understand it better. Paul Kalanithi explained it really well, and it made me see beyond the sickness, ...more

Oh wow, this one sure is a lot better than her last book! There were still a few one word per line pattern and she has taken on the style of repeating a word three times (read read read), but the concept was better than the last book. Also, this book ...more

I know I cannot write a poem and I probably don't have the right to say this, but this book was a little shallow (or hollow, maybe - like it lacked something) compared to her previous books. Though there were some good pieces, I was a little disappoi ...more

I first heard the term "post-partum depression" after Brooke Shields openly talked about it. If I remember correctly, it was already in the 2000s when she gave birth, and it was only then that I learned about it. I am not a mother...but I do know tha ...more
