An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

An American Marriage

Blurb from Goodreads:

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

This has been sitting on my table and it’s due at the library soon. So, I’m going to really make myself crack this open next! I can’t wait, I’ve heard good things.

 

What did I Recently Finish Reading?

Nice Try, Jane Sinner

Nice Try, Jane Sinner

Blurb from Goodreads: 

The only thing 17-year-old Jane Sinner hates more than failure is pity. After a personal crisis and her subsequent expulsion from high school, she’s going nowhere fast. Jane’s well-meaning parents push her to attend a high school completion program at the nearby Elbow River Community College, and she agrees, on one condition: she gets to move out.
 
Jane tackles her housing problem by signing up for House of Orange, a student-run reality show that is basically Big Brother, but for Elbow River Students. Living away from home, the chance to win a car (used, but whatever), and a campus full of people who don’t know what she did in high school… what more could she want? Okay, maybe a family that understands why she’d rather turn to Freud than Jesus to make sense of her life, but she’ll settle for fifteen minutes in the proverbial spotlight.
 
As House of Orange grows from a low-budget web series to a local TV show with fans and shoddy T-shirts, Jane finally has the chance to let her cynical, competitive nature thrive. She’ll use her growing fan base, and whatever Intro to Psychology can teach her, to prove to the world—or at least viewers of substandard TV—that she has what it takes to win.

 

I loved this book SO much!! I finished it in one sitting. It’s funny and deal with some serious issues at the same time. I highly recommend this!! Here’s my review: Nice Try, Jane Sinner by Lianne Oelke

What Am I Reading Next?

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King, #1)

Blurb from Goodreads: 

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

I’ve seen a handful of mixed reviews on this book. I’ve seen better reviews on the second book. So, I’m going to crack this one open. I have this one and the second one sitting on my library stack. I’m mainly reading Library books this week, so I should get to these! 

What are you reading or want to read?? How is your week going?! Let’s talk!

    • So, I just finished it… I have such mixed feelings. I don’t know how to write a review at the moment. It was very good but I’m left feeling sad and depressed. Ugh.

  1. An American Marriage has me really curious, I already want to know what happens with a premise like that! And Daughter of Pirate King- same here, I’ve seen mixed reviews, so I’m kinda ambivalent on that one.

    • An American Marriage was good but it’s not happy! So, if you pick it up, make sure you are in the right mindset! Daughter of the Pirate King is enjoyable and I will read the second book. It’s just not the best book I’ve ever read.

  2. Only book on here I’ve read is The Daughter of the Pirate King, and I see you’ve already got a review for that up, so I’m gonna have to go check it out! Hope you’re having a great reading week 🙂
