Book Review Bar – April ´20 Edition

The Book Review Bar…

A place where Short Stories Receive Short Reviews… 


 

 

Sinful Abandon

( Abandon Collection #4 )

Jeannine Colette

You know… In a way, this novella was picture perfect. Only 8 chapters long and 101 pages. The story about a * cough cough * bitch who needed a guy with money only to end up falling for a guy who doesn´t have any… Well, that was great, too. It´s just that the Heroine wasn´t anywhere near my cup of tea and that made it so hard for me fully ship the romantic couple.
A cute and short standalone romance perfect for in-between reads!



Off Sides 

( Off #1 )

Sawyer Bennett

Here´s the deal: 158 pages. 18 chapters and an epilogue. Dual POV. The writing was right up my alley… the story wasn´t. I´m convinced Off Sides ( Off #1 ) and I weren´t meant for each other. I felt underwhelmed from start to finish ( which didn´t take long ). Also, I didn´t like the characters. On a positive note: I´ll definitely have a look at the author´s other works because the writing really drew me in.


 

Little Black Book: A Toolkit For Working Women

Otegha Uwagba

Any woman with common sense would do best to not buy this book. Every piece of advice offered in this booklet is nothing new. Nothing groundbreaking or life-changing. I kind of expect toolkit booklets to be a tad more enlightening.  113 pages filled with Meeh.  Would not recommend it.


What Would The Spice Girls Do: How The Girl Power Generation Grew Up

Lauren Bravo

 

This book was a real treat. A fab walk down the 90´s memory lane. I wasn´t much of a fan of the Spice Girls but I definitely grew up with their music and their “girl power”. Their message impacted me just as much as it’s touched any girl/teenager/young adult back then.

A nice reminder of what happened back in the day and how the events shaped our world today. I would highly recommend reading as it shines a new light on feminism the Spice Girls era delivered.
