I loved this book so much. I remember reading it in 4th grade and telling all my friends about it. Although there is a TV series, there is also a book series. This book is one of my favorite Goosebumps book. It's about a boy, Ian, who loves ventriloquist dummies. His father gives him one for his birthday. To learn more, read the book and have fun! I would really recommend this book.

To be honest, I was expecting a lot more out of the book because of how famous it is. It ended up just being about a boy who accidentally ended up being the "best friend" of a kid who killed himself. All because of a letter he wrote. I understand the overall message of the book was much more than the story, yet I still couldn't let go of the fact that I didn't really connect with it as well as I hoped to. It was a quick read, so I was thankful, but I am still disappointed.

Hang the Moon

Jeannette Walls writes another 5-star book with this one. Great story about girl power before it was socially acceptable. Sallie Kincaid reminds me of Queen Elizabeth I and their unwillingness to marry because they knew it would only be a distraction.

A Woman's Crusade

I'd been meaning to read this biography of woman's suffragist Alice Paul for a while and moved it to the front of the queue after seeing the Suffs musical on Broadway. The problem with this was that I already knew the story. I downgraded the review to 2 stars for this reason. The biography was OK, but nothing special.

Tupac Shakur
by Staci Robinson

5 stars The biography of Tupac was an experience. Growing up I listened to Tupac and other old school rappers, but I never really knew much of their in depth life. I loved reading this to get a better insight on how Tupac’s family and friends viewed him: and outspoke young Black man who was a wonderful artist. He cared so much for my community and always wanted the best for it; especially coming from a family of Panthers. After reading this, I need to read Assata and Afeni’s autobiography: I feel like the experience would be even greater to view from a much closer relatives lenses.

this has to be one of the best books i've ever read. sapphism plus true crime? of course I'm going to love it. The "a good girls guide to murder" vibes kept me hooked the entire time. and I absolutely loved lea and iris's relationship. they were amazing !! also, the scene were iris got shot by Mr. cooper and the detective and everyone else came was just so emotional and perfect. 100% would recommend this book and I would love to reread it again for the first time. there weren't any plot holes and the plot twist was unpredictable. absolutely adored this book. <333

The Secret Life Of Bees
by Sue Monk Kidd

Heartwarming and enchanting novel that captivated me with its rich characters and poignant exploration of found family, set against the backdrop of 1960s South Carolina. Sue Monk Kidd's lyrical prose and the powerful bonds formed between Lily and the Boatwright sisters made this an unforgettable read that left me feeling both moved and uplifted.

Just Listen is about the hardships a young girl goes through in high school and the challenges she has to face to get through those tough times. As you read through this book you realize that no matter how perfectly put together someone looks, everyone is going to have something going on in their life. Sarah Dessen once again wrote a fabulous book a I encourage you to read more of her books!
