Dare To Be Kind: How Extraordinary Compassion Can Transform Our World

Dare To Be Kind: How Extraordinary Compassion Can Transform Our World
Author
Lizzie Velasquez
Review
Motivational speaker with rare genetic disorder which led to her being called "World's Ugliest Woman" describes how we can all learn to accept ourselves and each other with the hope of this behavior leading to a more compassionate society. I agree with her philosophy but I read the book thinking that there would be more examples of promoting kindness, I was disappointed that it was more of a memoir.  Dare To Be Kind: How Extraordinary Compassion Can Transform Our World

Review
I did not enjoy this book for several reasons. It was part of a series and people and situations were mentioned that I wasn't familiar with. Also the book took place in England and terms, etc were used which I wasn't familiar with. all of this took away from the enjoyment of "solving" the mystery.   Dust : a Richard Jury mystery

This is the first Stehanie Plum book I read. An easy summer read. Its a mystery with some strange characters and and a somewhat unbelievable plot.
Not a book I would have chose but a friend gave me their copy.  Plum Lucky

Review
For my mystery/suspense block on the Bingo Card I read this novel. This will be my last time reading this author as I believe her reading style is utterly childish and immature. I found it hard to enjoy the mystery of this story because of the unbelievable happenings in the story. Not worth my time.  Forget Me Not
