“When Harry Became Sally” by, Ryan T. Anderson.
Let me just start off by saying, I hate politics. Hate them. Don’t worry I research and vote. But I despise politics, and loathe debate. I also like to live with my head in the sand. “Ignorance is bliss” and all that. Sometimes however certain things bother me. Then I go to what I know, and find a book to learn more about it.
Transgender. Non gender specific child rearing. Thirty five different gender identities. What happened to male and female? Is there really a way to change gender? Ryan Anderson wrote this intense, amazing, informational, scientific, respectful book explaining what is happening in our culture. This was so well written, and eye opening. Almost terrifying at the attack that is happening on families in America. What a heavy responsibility raising a family right now! Whew, I am feeling it. Overall afterthought, so glad I read this.

“The Cactus” by, Sarah Haywood.
I was looking for an audiobook to listen to while driving home from a summer road trip. This was absolutely perfect. A little bit different of a story for me. It even had some sad stuff in it, but it was still good.
Susan Green is a forty five year old single woman, who has been content focusing on her career. Within a week she finds out her mother passed away, she left everything to her dead beat brother, and Susan was unexpectedly pregnant.
I know what you are thinking. You don’t like this much drama! Surprisingly I did. Susan is a bit of a loner and a feisty lady, who is a perfectionist and needs everything in neat, tidy order. I just enjoyed her and her crankiness. Overall afterthought, great dramatic story telling.
Book 38 in 2019.
“The Runaway Princess” by, Hester Browne.
So, I have started and put down about three books in the last couple weeks. None of them were worth finishing for me. I have thought about writing about the books that I don’t finish, but it I always feel bad for the authors if I don’t like their stories. I know they don’t read my blog, but I respect the fact that they have written and published a book, a dream I am sure they have achieved. Who am I? Just someone who likes to read books.
Anyway. I wanted cute, light and fluffy. I really enjoyed Hester Browne! I have not read any of her books yet, but I will definitely be checking them out. It was very clean, and a great story that kept me interested.
Girl meets boy.
Boy is actually a prince.
Girl is no where near a princess.
They fall in love.
Can it work out?
Resistance from families.
A little drama.
A little love.
Overall afterthought, it was worth reading all the way through.

“Before We Were Yours”, by Lisa Wingate.
So. I have seen this book a lot on the must read lists. “Read this”. “It’s so good”. “You won’t be able to put it down”. “Loved this book”.
I didn’t investigate too much into what it was about. I knew it was about adoption. My general rule with reading is just pick it up from the title and cover, sometimes I find out a little more. I might be the first person who hated this book.
Ha. I know. Harsh. I do not like books about bad things that happen to children. I know it has a great theme of endurance, perseverance, and family bonds. There is so much to the story about finding truth, closure, and love winning. I just can’t get over people harming children. It takes over seeing most of the good. The worst part is, it’s based on true evil, sick, villains who kidnapped, abused, violated, molested and murdered real children, then sold the remaining victims to the highest bidder. Barf.
Overall afterthought, no, nope, blagh.
