Becoming by Michelle Obama
Janet’s first review of the year
really liked it
I'm a huge Michelle fan and found it interesting to see how she struggled to balance her personal and highly public life. One minor complaint: I think she could have used the expression "I was humbled" at least a dozen times less.

Janet’s last review of the year
it was amazing
This compelling page-turner is both a triller and a historical novel, set in Victorian London with a glimpse into the world of the Pre-Raphaelite artists, whose brilliant works were at first shunned by the critics. The details of this world are set on the page so graphically, the novel whisks the reader back in time. Amazing work from a young potter turned novelist.
