Book Review: Ghost of Caura by Lance Baptiste

A couple of weeks ago, my friend posted the link for this book on my Facebook page. I saw the title and I was excited....I thought that this was going to be a good book 😊. I love love Trinbagonian / Caribbean authors and their stories especially when they are telling stories about places that … Continue reading Book Review: Ghost of Caura by Lance Baptiste

Book Review: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

It is easy to see this book as a bag of tricks that you can use to get people to do what you want them to do but I think that is just a shallow way of analyzing it🤨. It is deeper than that. The book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, is not … Continue reading Book Review: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Book Review: Augustown by Kei Miller

I am obsessed with Jamaica, it is my favorite island in the Caribbean, apart from Trinidad and Tobago of course, so when my friend Leah bought this book and suggested that I give it a read, how could I say no? 😊This fascinating novel is set in the one of the most infamous places in … Continue reading Book Review: Augustown by Kei Miller

Review: The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett (A MUST READ!)

This is just a great book. It just is....😍 I typically don't like books that deal with colorism and all these other deep seated issues of African American society because in my mind we see enough of this on the news and hear enough about it on the radio. I don't need to read about … Continue reading Review: The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett (A MUST READ!)

Book Review: Miguel Street by V.S. Naipaul

My mother actually bought me this book for Christmas in 2007 🎁🎄 and I am pretty sure I read it back then but I could not remember the story anymore. Recently, while visiting my mom I saw this book on the bookshelf and I decided that it was time for a re-read. Overall, I found … Continue reading Book Review: Miguel Street by V.S. Naipaul

Book Review: The Duke and I by Julia Quinn & Bridgerton S01 on Netflix

All I can say is Daphne!!! For the past few weeks one of the top shows on Netflix has been Bridgerton and earlier this week Netflix announced that this show was its "biggest show ever as it was streamed by 82 million households in its first 28 days". Not only is it constantly on your … Continue reading Book Review: The Duke and I by Julia Quinn & Bridgerton S01 on Netflix

My Favorite Book of 2020: Educated by Tara Westover

This book is pretty much the reason why I love biographies! 😍Tara's story is truly amazing, mind-bobbling, engrossing, unbelievable and inspiring. Wow 😯was the word I kept repeating as I read this book. How did she do it? How did this little girl who grew up in the mountains of Idaho to a family of … Continue reading My Favorite Book of 2020: Educated by Tara Westover

Book Review: Golden Child by Claire Adam

How much are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your goals? That was the question that ran through my mind as I lay down to sleep. I had just completed the Golden Child by Claire Adam and I still, honestly was in a state of shock. I couldn't believe how this story unfolded.....What a book! … Continue reading Book Review: Golden Child by Claire Adam

Book Review: The Year in San Fernando by Michael Anthony

There is something special about a book that paints a lucid picture of a time long ago. I enjoy books that are somewhat like a historical storybook, a window into the past. I am Trinbagonian and I am familiar with the San Fernando of the 21st century, but this book gave me a glimpse into life … Continue reading Book Review: The Year in San Fernando by Michael Anthony

Book Review: An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Now this was a good book but just not a good book for me. It honestly as we Trinis would say, was real bacchanal from the start. My friend Hannah recommended this book to me and although I found it entertaining, I rated it 3.5 / 5 because it really was too much drama for … Continue reading Book Review: An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Book Review: Black Privilege – Charlamagne Tha God

Now Charlamagne tha God isn't everyone's cup of tea ☕ for sure, but I for one am a fan of his work as I find him to be brutally honest, refreshing and entertaining on his radio show The Breakfast Club (which you can watch on line on YouTube if you are not in the US)😊 … Continue reading Book Review: Black Privilege – Charlamagne Tha God
