40776644The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates: You help women, you help everyone. Melinda Gates discovered that by doing work for her and her husband’s foundation that seeks to improve the world and by listening to the stories of many women around the world. Improve the conditions of women, invest in their education, eliminate the stigma that follows them, encourage them to stand up for themselves and for each other… Do all of these things and one day we might completely eliminate wars. If this seems like a far-fetched statement to you, read this book. I especially recommend you read this book if you don’t believe in equality between sexes and seeing women in positions of power. Because you need a reality check. You need to open your eyes wide and let the truth submerge you. 4 stars.

402013Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison: I definitely would have read this crazy series during my teenage years had I known it existed. It’s a mélange of nonsensical, cringe-worthy and bloody amusing stuff and I dig it. 3 stars.

12174691Kris Jenner… and All Things Kardashian by Kris Jenner: You can say anything you want about Kris Jenner but this woman – this matriarch – understands hard work and the value of family relationships. Her early life will shock you as much as it will entertain you. Her describing the O.J. Simpson trial will break your heart. I wish she hadn’t spent so much time on it but I understand that it affected her deeply since she was very close to both O.J. and Nicole. Finally, if you’re a Keeping Up With the Kardashians fan, you’ll adore reading about how the show came to be and how it has helped fulfill many of Kris’ dreams and allowed her to develop new skills and improve old ones. If there’s one lesson you should take away from this book is that it’s never too late to pursue a dream and learn from life. 3 stars.

3153910The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein: This book made me really want to adopt a dog, any dog who needs someone to love them and who wants to love in return. It also made me really want to start talking to animals. Does that sound crazy? I don’t care. 4 stars.

The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot: I’m rather curious to227464 know who the murderer is but I just can’t read more of the will-they-won’t-they romantic relationship covered in lies. And the office gossip and drama is over the top. The format – epistolary – is what drew me in, but everything else slowly drew me out. 2 stars. DNF.
