Book Review: Sisters’ Entrance

Pub Date 29 May 2018

I am reviewing a copy of Sisters’ Entrance through Andrews McMeel Publishing and Netgalley:

Emtithal (Emi) Mahmoud was the 2015 Slam Champion and the woman of the world co-champion presents a beautiful collection of poetry.

This collection is brimming with rage, sorrow and resilience, this collection traverses an expansive terrain, genocide and the guilt of surviving such atrocities, surviving Islamphobia as well as racism.

I give Sisters’ Entrance four out of five stars!

Book Review: Party Of One

Party of One

Truth, Longing, and the Subtle Art of Singleness

by Joy Beth Smith

Thomas Nelson

Christian , Self-Help

Pub Date 06 Feb 2018

I am reviewing a copy of Party of One through Thomas Nelson and Netgalley:

We often become adults thinking marriage will find us without us really having to put any effort into it, and by the time we are thirty we start to wonder if single life is the best, but Joy Beth Smith says that the single life does not have to be a runner up version of God’s best.

We are reminded that we don’t have to be married in order to be wise. We are reminded that we don’t have own a home in order to show in hospitality. We are reminded that singleness is not meant to be pitied, shamed, fixed or even ignored. Singleness is meant to be celebrated.

We are reminded that God doesn’t promise you a husband, but he promises comfort and intimacy in satisfaction.

I give Party of One five out of five stars!
