Joan is Okay by Weike Wang ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


Joan is Okay is my first book by Weike Wang. I was drawn to the story because it featured a single woman who didn't feel the need to get married. As a single woman who has never married, I was excited to see someone like me in a book. It is rare to have a main character that doesn't develop a romantic relationship over the course of the story.

2 Books with Characters of Color

by MK French



In the last few years, the publishing industry has been trying to provide more diverse voices. Before, characters of color were basically only minor characters and usually not written by authors of color. Now, with the own voices movement we are seeing more authors of color who are creating main characters of color. If you are wanting to diversify your reading or wanting to read stories with characters that are more like you, I have two interesting books you are going to want to add to your reading list.

5 Audiobooks to Help You Read More Books

by Donna Huber


Is one of your New Year's resolutions to read more books? I greatly exceeded my reading goal last year because I increased the number of audiobooks I was listening to. I was already listening to audiobooks while working, but I made a point of instead of having the TV playing in the background, I would listen to a book while I cleaned the house, cooked dinner, etc. It's amazing how many hours a day you can fit in an audiobook. If you are wanting to give audiobooks a chance, I have a few you might want to give a try.
