MSRL: Very New Orleans - A Picture Book For Grown Ups

Very New Orleans: A Celebration of History, Culture, and Cajun Country CharmVery New Orleans: A Celebration of History, Culture, and Cajun Country Charm by Diana Hollingsworth Gessler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I loved this little book! It's interesting because, while you know this was a book most likely aimed at grown ups, it reminded you of being back in grade school, because the author, Diana Hollingsworth Gessler, illustrated the entire book, making you think you were perusing through a picture book.  Very New Orleans is a very elementary, quick,  but in-depth look into the history of New Orleans. If you want to learn about one of America's greatest cities without taking a history class, this is the book for you.

MSRL: E. Lynn Harris' Final Novel - Am I Wrong For Not Finishing It?

In My Father's House: A NovelIn My Father's House: A Novel by E. Lynn Harris

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


I stopped reading this book. I wasn't as impressed with it as I thought I would be. I became bored with it. I will attempt to read another of Harris' previous books, but I just couldn't finish this one.
