Books I've Read in 2017 #20-23

 
Hi, everyone! It's been a bit of a hot minute since I've uploaded a video, but I finally figured out the technical problems I've been having. Here's a review of four books that I've read in 2017. Also I'm so excited because I just hit 101 subscribers on YouTube and I'm so blessed and thankful for each person who has taken the time to watch my videos and liked me enough to subscribe to my channel. Again, thank you so much for reading my blog and watching my videos. It really means the world to me!

THE BOOKS:

Excerpts from a Film (1942-1987) - A.C. Wise 5 stars This Tor short was absolutely beautiful. It follows a young woman with dreams of becoming a Hollywood star. She wants the world to remember her, but is also haunted by the ghosts of young women who have been forgotten. It's a wonderful story and you can read it for free on Tor's website! Check out my review here.
Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald - Therese Anne Fowler 4.25 stars The fictionalized account of Zelda Fitzgerald's life and marriage to F. Scott Fitzgerald is a very interesting look into a starlet of the past. Zelda played a huge role in the 1920s, but she is, in my opinion, a figure who has been linked to her husband. This novel does an excellent job of showing that she was and wanted to be a woman of her own making, but the time period she lived in didn't allow that to come to fruition.
 Dolores Claiborne - Stephen King 5 stars If you've been watching my videos the last couple of months, then you are probably tired of hearing about this King novel, but it is so good that I can't stop talking about it. Seriously, read this one! It's amazing and one of the best character studies I've ever read.
The Pocketbook of Sunshine and Rain - Nenia Campbell 4.5 stars This is a poetry collection that is worth checking out. There are some great poems and if you want an idea of the style, I read my favorite poem in the video. Check out my review here.

Best of the Bunch:
Dolores Claiborne

  1. I've heard so much about "Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald." I like how you said she wanted to be a woman of her own making, she sounds like a brillant character I'll have to check out for myself!
