.may books.

It's the first of the month..which means we get to review the books that I read the month before! Can I be honest with you....I love this time of month. It may be one of the things I look forward to! Sooooooo here we gooooooooo.............

The Girl's Guide to Homelessness: Brianna Karp  The book looks into Brianna's life during a time when she became homelessness, living out of a trailer in a Walmart parking lot. She had a full time job, lived in a house, life was great...and WHAM, she gets laid off, can't afford her rent and ends up in a parking lot. The book was okay, in the middle it began to be more about her love life more, which wasn't what I expected. It really wasn't really a guide, but she does talk a lot about how we shouldn't judge the homeless because we don't know the person's situation. I agree with that and I wish she would have touched more about it in the book.

Room: Emma Donoghue  This book was recommended to me by a friend who really liked it. Good thing I listened because it was great! The book is from the point of view of Jack, a 5 year old boy. He introduces you to Room, Wardrobe, Snake, etc. and share's his life from his point of view. I really want to tell you more, but NOPE, I'm not going to..it would ruin it for you!  All I can say, is pick it up from the library, borrow it from a friend, find it in the store..basically all in all READ THIS BOOK!

Skinny ( A Novel): Diana Spechler This book was okay, I didn't hate it and I didn't love it. It follows, Gray, as she deals with the grief of losing her father to a heart attack. As she deals with the lose she turns to over eating to fill the emptiness. When she discovers that her supposed half sister that she has never met is attending fat camp, Gray jumps at the chance to be a counselor at the same camp to get closer to her. The book follows Gray during her journey of finding herself, dealing with food issues, love, lost, and becoming her own woman.
