  • Fifty Words for Rain by Asha Lemmie – A book about sibling love and fate
    Fifty Words for Rain, is the beautiful tale of Nori. The story takes place in Japan after the end of WWII. In the beginning of the book a young Nori is dropped off at the front door of her grandmother’s house by her mother, who disappears afterwards. Nori had never met her Obaasama before, but quickly learns her family is old Japanese aristocracy. Her grandmother treats Nori awfully, but Nori is a strong woman and learns to survive.
  • We Have Always Been Here by Samra Habib – A Queer Muslim Memoir
    Reading this book was an amazing experience because I learned so much, I was told about my home from a perspective not my own. I read about a woman who had endured so much, but remained strong and true to herself. She experienced fear, betrayal, suppression, rejection, discovery, and in the end found acceptance.

I tend to choose popular books, that everyone is talking about. My favorite genre is historical fiction, but I also enjoy self-improvement and parenting books. In each review I identify the themes of the book, and what I loved about it. Reading my reviews can help you decide what books to add to your reading. Or if you already read the book, we can discuss and compare options. I love to get comments and discuss the books I read. Please take a look around, and tell me what you think.

Parenting Books

Why do I like to read parenting books? Just like any skill, I think parenting is hard, and you need to practice to get better at it. As a first-time mom I had no idea what I was doing, but books helped me learn all the little things I needed to know, like feeding and sleep. Then as she got older, I used books to learn how to deal with tantrums and talk to a strong-willed toddler. Reading books written from the experiences of other parents, helps you feel like part of a group, knowing you are not alone, and learning from other people’s experiences.
