TW: Rape, drugs, violence, murder
*****SPOILERS*****
About the book: Adored by her legions of followers, social media megastar Skye is an inspiration. Once homeless, she is now fantastically wealthy, enormously powerful. A ‘like’ from Skye can literally change your life.So when she suggests partnering with Nathan’s charity for the homeless, he thinks it’s a match made in heaven. With Skye’s backing, who knows what he can achieve? And no-one is more excited than Nathan’s teenage daughters, both massive fans of the star. But Skye’s influence comes at a price. Yes, funds are pouring into Nathan’s charity, but she is a smothering presence, seemingly determined to insert herself into every nook and cranny of his family life.
Release Date: April 25th, 2021
Genre: Thriller
Rating: 🕸🕸🕸
<b>What I Liked:</b>
1. The story flowed and I didn’t feel like the book took me a long time to finish.
What I Didn't Like:
1. At times the writing seemed childish.
2. The ending just wasn’t good.
3. That EVERYONE knew her EVERYWHERE she went.
Overall Thoughts: We all see them; the influencers on social media but how much is really true about that life or them?
I enjoyed the book a lot and was eager to see where the story was going to go. There were parts where I think the author got confused. One such part is where Tiffany asks Skye how she made money and Skye replies with she had a cardboard sign with “I’m hungry, please help”, but Tiffany should know that since that’s how they met. Around the 60% mark is where the story kind of took a nose dive for me. I was loving the book up until that point. It got on my nerves that everywhere Skye went they knew her. It didn’t matter or who or age they all knew her.Jim the homeless guy knew her too. There’s a scene where she’s leaving the hospital with Nathan and there are the news people there interviewing her. It just gets to be too much. The author made out like she was a movie star status. Another thing that got on my nerves was that Nathan just refused to defend himself and stick up for what was right for me and respect Marie. He thinks he is drugged and raped but he keeps being pleasant to Skye and even inviting her in after his fiancée has left him and Skye shows up uninvited with pizza. I think not! He continues to ask this woman that is completely unhinged to remove things from her social media or say things aren’t true, to which she replies continually that she can’t. So why not just make a social media account and release your own video saying the relationship isn’t real and that you’ve decided to part ways with her because of differences. It just annoyed me that he continued to be used and not defend himself. She even kidnaps his kids and he brushes it off with no legal action because he is worried about his charity. The ending was just not good. It was so random and missing something. It felt rushed considering the build up for the big boat race.
<I>I received this advanced copy for my honest opinion. Thanks to Netgalley and Inkubator.

As a person who did not exist in 1932 or was a witness to the crime I can say I was actually enthralled by this audiobook. I only knew a little bit about what happened to the Limbaugh baby. But listening to this I can't believe how much stuff went down. I can't believe how flaky Charles was to trying to solve what happened to his son. I understand wanting to be a part of an investigation but he pretty much sabotage everything. That was weird. I enjoyed this book. I love a person when they try to solve a crime or figure out what happened. But for me that's where it stops unless you have DNA proof to place a person there it's all just speculation realistically not enough to actually say so and so did it. But the ride that I went on with this book was a lot of fun so definitely four stars for me.
I was blown away by how much happened and was ignored. Sadly after a certain point you're not surprised by the actions of others. While I can't agree or disagree with the author on the who did it I can say I loved the telling of this and quite enjoyed the book. I liked the narrators voice.

TW: Violence, depression, and loss.  
About the book: Elle is just another teenage girl... most of the time. Bubbly and good-natured, she wastes no time making friends on her first day at her new school. But Elle has a secret: she hasn't come alone. She's brought with her a colorful mix of personalities, which come out when she least expects it... Who is Elle, really? And will her new friends stand by her when they find out the truth?
Thoughts: This graphic novel was beautifully drawn. The colors were just vivid and the story flowed. I felt so bad for Elle. A person can only handle so much when they are being pushed to the edge. I wanted to hug her and tell her that things can get better. The ending killed me and I can't wait for the next one.  
Thanks to Netgalley and publishers for giving me an advanced copy of the book.

About the book:I'm not going to go over what this book is about because that's weird. You already know what the book is about and if you don't scroll up to the top and read. I'll wait. Okay welcome back 😊
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Rating: 🌍🌍🌍🌍🌍
What I Liked:
1. That George took care of Lennie despite not being related
2. Lennie's innocence
What I Didn't Like:
1. The book is too short.
2. All the animal deaths 🥺
Overall Thoughts: I never read this in school and I am so thankful for that. I think when you're forced to read a story in school especially a classic you can come away from it hating it and not appreciating what it is. When I read the story I didn't know anything about it I didn't know the famous well-known ending or even about these characters. The story enthralled me and kept my attention. And my heart broke for all the characters in it. I love this book and I cried at the end. Should have known it was coming but what is a girl to do.
Final Thoughts: I definitely think people should read this book. It's short enough that you could give it a chance.

Yesterday I started this "The Four Winds" by Kristin Hannah. I have to admit it wasn't my first one. I tried to read "The Nightingale" a few years ago but I just couldn't get into it. It made my mind wander and I got only 50 pages in before I dnfed it.
I've been seeing this book all over my Goodreads, Instagram, and YouTube. Perhaps it has something too with it being a Book of the Month Club selection. I have my thoughts on that that I shall keep to myself. I put in a request with Libby for the audiobook as well as the ebook. The audiobook came in first so I went that route.
The book was going along so good. I was invested in the story and seriously couldn't stop reading this. Where I lost it was about the 75% mark. It felt like it was getting repetitive for me. Larena got on my nerves talking about how things needed to change. I get it things suck and there is a change that needs to be done but her constant bitching got on my nerves.
I'm still trying to understand the sad part that made people cry. The mom I get she is murdered but it wasn't sad at all. I don't know how anyone didn't know that was coming. Nothing is surprising to me about this book. It's all so straight forward. You know the dad is going to leave, you know they are going to leave Texas, and you know they are going to join in on the strike.
It's also hard for me to feel badly for these people and their farms. Just knowing that the farms were stolen from Mexicans kills me. This was their land that was stolen from white people.

Hello! This is where I am putting my new book review blog. Looking forward to trying this format out as I have only been using WordPress and honestly the format was a little on the 😴 side of things.
