Unashamed: Musings of a Fat, Black Muslim by Leah Vernon

challenging emotional funny reflective medium-paced


I really, really, really wanted to like this. I loved Leah's voice. I loved the messages that Leah's story was saying. But.. I am not sure. I am not sure why, but the story just didn't hit me. Maybe it was the wrong time for me to read it? 
I purposefully read the book over a couple of weeks, so that I had time to sit with it. And I have not rated this book a 2.75 out of spite, or hatred or overall dislike. Just compared to other things that I have read this year it sat on the OK-ness of a 2.75 star book. I read a library copy but would love to buy and read this book again in the future because I know it's good. And that it just wasn't for me at this time.
