If I Tell You The Truth by Jasmin Kaur | Thoughts

     Published on : 2021   ||    Format : ebook   ||    Location : Canada One line review : When Kiran runs away from home to another country, to escape her rapist, she doesn't realize how long it is going to take her to feel like herself again.  ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆   “Passports and boarding passes, please,” drawls the blond, goateed man, towering a foot above us both. I pass him both my and Mom’s documents and attempt the smile that every person of color has mastered. The one that reads, I’m thoroughly nonthreatening.

Books on my nightstand

The Passage by Justin Cronin: Ever so slowly, I am moving through this book. I wish I could finish this sooner, but reading the same book for so long makes me miserable.
Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser: The first Lumby book, Lumby Lines, was a really easy and cozy read that I enjoyed more than I expected to. After a long time, I picked up the second Lumby book, Stealing Lumby, and this book has the same effect on me!
The Game On! Diet by Krista Vernoff and Az Ferguson: Technically, I should be done with this book by now, since I'm doing this game this month. But I still have a couple of the less important chapters to go.

I get frustrated when a book takes so long to finish too so I totally understand. You need to get the audio version to listen to in your car!

I haven't started on some of my chunksters because I have so much catching up to do and if I get bogged down in a humungous book I won't accomplish anything LOL

The Passage is supposed to be worth the time though :-)
Have a great week and happy reading!

I'm looking forward to The Passage but I understand getting behind on everything else during a big book.
I thought about picking up The Passage, but then I saw how long it was!
I listened to The Passage on audio and survived! Dont give up :)
