What an amazing way to end Non-Fiction November than to do so with a Memoir by no other than President Barack Obama. A flawless speaker and writer that is always extremely captivating. The wonderful photos that add that personal Obama touch makes you feel like you really are family. This is a book that can’t be missed. I would like to thank my {Partner} @CrownPublishing} a Division of @PenguinRandomHouse and the Author, President @BarackObama for the gifted copy of A PROMISED LAND. This book is available now! And if you go today through the Link in my Bio; you can get a Hardcover copy for only $22. ****** Synopsis: In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil. Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office. Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune’s Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden. ******

Are you ready to laugh until you cry? Whether you are a Trump supporter or not, this book is the most comical piece of work I’ve read in a long time. Especially with everything that has happened recently; it takes a lighthearted spin on Donald Trump’s life growing up and it’s a shocker! (Credit to my daughter @alyssameek2000 for wearing her Trump Halloween mask for my benefit & book pic) I would like to thank my {Partner} @Inkshares and the Author, @TheRealMBennett for the gifted copy of YOUNG DONALD. This book is available now and you can get a copy via the Link in my Bio. ****** Synopsis: Just a few minutes before, Teddy Haswell had been helping his friend Donald break into the math teacher's office. Now, limbs terminally akimbo, Teddy’s body lies in a pool of blood in Jessup Quadrangle. And at the center of the investigation at the prestigious New Jersey Military Academy is young Donald. Surely blame for Teddy’s accidental death should not rest with him, Donald reasons. But how? Can people be convinced that Teddy took his own life? Can suspicion be cast on Stanley Wong, the Academy’s only Asian cadet? And with Teddy gone, who can Donald enlist to help him avoid blame? From New York real-estate moguls to Hong Kong triad bosses, Donald’s web of lies soon spins further than he could have ever imagined. ****** QOTD: Are you a very political person or more of an observer? • • • • #michaelbennett #politicalbooks #politicalfiction #fictionsatire #satire #inshares #humor #humorousfiction #humoorous #presidenttrump #youngdonald #igreads #arc #arcs

He wonders if maybe it would be easier to wait until college to come out. But as he plays Romeo every day in rehearsals, Dean realizes he wants everyone to see him as he really is now--not just on the stage, but everywhere in his life. Dean knows what he needs to do. Can playing a role help Dean be his true self? ****** QOTD: Do you believe in Bigfoot? • • • • #raystoeve #newrelease #abramsbooks #comingofage #youngadultfiction #selfesteem #gayandlesbianfiction #transgender ##betweenperfectandreal #igreads #mustreads #books #read #readersofinstagram #arc #arcs #booklover #reading #lgbt #lgbtfiction #lgbtbooks

My Review of THE CHICKEN SISTERS By @KJDA Published & Gifted by @PutnamBooks On Sale 12/1/20 - Link in my Bio ****** This book was such a fun read. With some family drama, feuds, good old fashioned rivalry and fun. In the likes of Fannie Flagg, this Author hit it out of the ballpark with one entertaining read that I’m sure has parts that can hit pretty close to home for a majority of readers. With some romance thrown in and some tasty fried chicken. Two chicken restaurants with their own families each running it for generations, in the same town can definitely offer up some stiff competition; but it’s even more difficult when one of the owner’s daughters marries the son of the competing fried chicken restaurant. Because that’s where the feud begins. But when there is a competition tv show offering up $100,000 to the winner of thee two competing restaurants with the best tasting chicken, the sisters of each of these competing restaurants sign up for the challenge. Each sister is completely different from the other and sets up for the fun in getting to see the rivalry. But it is also heartening to see the difference on their pasts, upbringing, current lives to how they mother their children. They may find they have more in common than just a rivalry. The tension has you flipping pages and the humor has you smiling ear to ear. An uplifting story, a lighthearted read with a resolution that will have you wanting more from these cast of characters. ***** QOTD: Have you ever been on TV? • • • • #kjdellantonia #newrelease #comedy #putnambooks #sistersfiction #mothersandchildrenfiction #lifefiction #womensfiction #thechickensisters #domesticfiction #igreads #mustreads #books #read #preorder #humorousfiction #readersofinstagram #arc #arcs

She is thin as a string bean and her sleeve is ragged and damp – like she’s been chewing it. 1939. War has broken out – hundreds of children are evacuated to the countryside to keep them safe from the bombs raining down on the cities. Wrenched from her family in the East End and sent more than a hundred miles away, seven-year-old Pearl Posner must adapt to a new life away from everything familiar. Vivienne didn’t ask for an evacuee child. In fact, she’s not sure her heart can take it. So many years, so many disappointments… Vivi’s ability to feel love left her the day she learned the truth about her husband Edmund, and when she made the worst decision of her life and left her cherished sister to her fate. But like it or not, Pearl is here to stay, and what with the rumours about what’s happening to children in mainland Europe, it might be the last safe place for her. As Pearl and Vivi learn how to live together, they discover that they have a connection that runs more deeply than they could ever have guessed – from before Pearl was born, and deep into Vivienne’s past. And will it be Pearl – the little girl who says so little and sees so much – who forces Vivi to finally confront what happened in her marriage… and to the long-lost sister she loved so dearly and let fall so far, just when she needed Vivi most? ****** QOTD: What is the last book that made you cry? • • • • #newreads #lizziepage #readforeverpub #wheniwasyours #historicalfiction #jewishfiction #igreads #mustreads #arc #womensfiction #friendshipfiction #familysagafiction #familysaga
