I know that its been a year since I did a book review, and it is not because I have completely given up on books, I just hadn’t found the time to review one for you guys. I know that the last time we “spoke” I was supposed to give a review of The Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll, but to be honest I did not like that at all and I hate to put negative things into the atmosphere (ha-ha), so I had to dead the entire idea of it. Anyway, that’s what happened…moving forward.
December was all about Ashley Bell by Dean Koontz. This novel took me through the 5 stages of grief like none other. This isn’t to be mistaken for a sad story (it is not) but it did cause me tons of grief and yet, I still could not stop reading it.
First thing you need to know is that this book is a behemoth, its rather large and has short chapters. Something about it, I’m not sure what yet (even after reading the entire book), kept me flipping the pages. Ashley Bell certainly stretches your imagination and gets right in there and finds the crazy that is embedded deep within all of us. It takes you on this journey where the entire time you’re thinking “no way” but by then you’re pretty invested and you start believing “hey it could happen”
or I’m just gullible. Nonetheless, I don’t think it was an entire waste of time. I actually found myself enjoying it and overall it was a good read. Something that I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection. At the very least you should check it out from your local library.
My plan is to read either My Voice by Angie Martinez or dive into Issa Rae’s “Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl” not going to lie the latter seems more appealing right at this moment. As always, give me a shout below if you’ve read this book or have one that you can suggest for me. Thanks so much!!!
Dream. Love. Inspire.
