      I enjoyed the characters in this book and the friendships building between them along their journey I especially liked Aunt Abbie who considers herself to be a visionary advisor.My favorite quote I don t hear voices, she sniffed I have visions There s a difference, although you re still too full of estrogen to understand it Aunt Abbie goes on the say Estrogen is fine, but it definitely blocks a lot of female magic, especially the stuff having to do with being able to see the past and present and [...]

      It was only ok for me Didn t have the charm of the what crazy looks like or the build up of the love story that red dress did You never really got to know Blue, Doo Doo was just a shadow of a bad guy with only 1 or 2 lines of dialog The story moved slowly and then about 50 pages from the end, it turned into a sprint Enjoyable, but not her best.

    3. Atena Oyadi on said:

      I was able to get pretty engaged with this story I like the stories she has to tell they are compelling I think it s interesting that she starts the story talking about drug addiction as though it were merely a series of bad decisions, with few physical or psychological ramifications beyond the loss of cash and property I think she treats the topic a little too lightly, and with a smidge of judgement.I also take issue with the way she presents this neighborhood cleansing, without much questionin [...]

    6. Tracy Darity on said:

      Some Things I Never Thought I d Do by Pearl Cleage is somewhat of an urban fantasy romance The story opens in Washington D.C with Regina Burns having just returned home from rehab and is on the verge of losing the family home With the guidance of her Aunt Abbie, she returns to Atlanta where all her problems began, the intention being to raise the required cash to appease the banker who half heartedly wants to help her save the house that the aunt has mysteriously taken up residence in during her [...]

      Pearl Cleage is an amazing author She writes what would be classified as African American fiction, but I really consider it women s fiction Her characters are believable and likable, even though they are truly flawed human beings maybe because of it But her women are strong, stronger than they realize, and they grow and deepen in character throughout her novels This novel is no different, with the main character recently out of rehab and trying to put her life back together I highly recommend a [...]

      I liked it I was a feel good light hearted read for me I put it down a few times, but I always came back to it I described it as a book to refresh my reading palate when I m reading extreme genres.

    10. Sarauna on said:

      Read it in a day, but there just was no development The love story was rushed, the magical element just came off as an afterthought It was still well written, her descriptions made you feel the energy of the communities she explored, but the storyline itself could have used conviction.

    11. Jill on said:

      This is the first time I ve read this author and enjoy this book I would most likely, read something else of hers She has a relax style, fresh and mature style Well done.

    12. Darlene on said:

    15. Brittany on said:

      This book was too ambitious There were too many themes and stories and as a result the resolution was lackluster.

      Set in Atlanta s West End The author knows the area I found this book interesting and it held my attention The ending was very unexpected That s what made it good reading.

    18. Shanika Carter on said:

      An interesting read, particularly with ATTENTION A BIT OF A SPOILER the whole time travel addition to the story Besides a few storylines being thrown in the mix that seemed to come out of nowhere, in my opinion, I did like the main character and the story of her journey.

    19. Brenda Blakely on said:

      I loved the African American cultural heritage here, perspectives I had previously no clue, offered with life, colour and music This was such a fun, easy read The characters are intriguing and grow with the plot I love the scene changes and the vibrancy and memories in each location.

    20. Liz on said:

      Loved it the writing, arch of the story, the characters So many quotable lines One of the problems black folks have is we re usually so busy making history that we don t take the time to record it The story of pioneers everywhere.

    21. Madlyn on said:

      This novel was a very slow start but it picked up in the middle of the novel to a good ending.

    23. Delaney Diamond on said:

      This story is about Regina Burns and how she turned her life around after getting hooked on drugs and almost losing her mother s house Cleage didn t dwell much on the drug abuse, but it was the reason that Regina found herself in the predicament she did There are other themes as well, such as the role of men in society whether their role is as protector or predator and how they treat women and children Cleage also touches on how black men are perceived in society at large, and whether or not the [...]

      Content warnings mentions of rape, mentions of murder, mentions of death, threats of violence, implied violence, mentions of drugs, alcohol usage, implied sexThis was honestly better than I was expecting I mean I was expecting it to be good because she s a good author but it exceeded my expectations or maybe my expectations were lower than normal due to being badly disappointed in the pastgardless though.I ADORE Nat King Cole I need to put that out there Because the author quotes from the song T [...]
