A Sitting in St. James
Rita Williams-Garcia - 2021-05-25

This powerful novel by a three-time National Book Award finalist delves into the enduring legacies of slavery on an antebellum plantation in Louisiana. Through intergenerational stories, Williams-Garcia confronts the routine horrors, buried secrets, and tangled bonds that bind those bound to the plantation. Essential reading for anyone grappling with America's long history of racism, this empathetic and brutal tale is a tour-de-force of human experience.

Todos quieren a Daisy Jones
A Novel
Taylor Jenkins Reid - 2019-03-05
Calificación de Goodreads
Todo el mundo conoce a Daisy Jones & The Six: el álbum de la banda Aurora llegó a definir la era del rock ‘n’ roll de finales de los setenta, y una generación entera de chicas quería crecer para ser Daisy. Pero nadie sabe la razón detrás de la división del grupo en la noche de su concierto final en el Estadio de Chicago el 12 de julio de 1979. . . hasta ahora. Daisy es una niña que llega a la mayoría de edad en Los Ángeles a fines de los años sesenta, se cuela en clubes en Sunset Strip, duerme con estrellas de rock y sueña con cantar en Whiskey a Go Go. El sexo y las drogas son emocionantes, pero es el rock ‘n’ roll lo que más ama. Para cuando tiene veinte años, su voz se hace notar y tiene el tipo de belleza despreocupada que hace que la gente haga locuras. También se hizo notar The Six, una banda dirigida por el melancólico Billy Dunne. En la víspera de su primera gira, su novia Camila descubre que está embarazada, y con la presión de la paternidad y la fama inminentes, Billy se vuelve un poco loco en el camino. Daisy y Billy se cruzan cuando un productor se da cuenta de que la clave del éxito sobrealimentado es unir los dos. Lo que suceda después se convertirá en leyenda.

Calificación de Goodreads
This romantic novel follows the story of soap opera actress Jasmine Lin Rodriguez. After a public breakup, she returns to her hometown of New York City to star in a romantic comedy for a streaming service. However, a casting shake-up pairs her with hunky telenovela actor Ashton Suárez, and they must generate on-screen chemistry despite a disastrous first impression. As they rehearse in private, their romance becomes worthy of a soap opera, but the media spotlight threatens to expose Ashton's closely guarded secret and destroy Jasmine's new image.
