His Mother’s Son

This memoir provides a deep exploration of a man’s life, shaped by parents who never truly loved him. His mother harbored resentment towards motherhood, and his father, complicit in her wishes, left Paul Anthony feeling abandoned and unloved. The author’s family was unique, and they did not conform to societal norms, earning them the label “accidental.” However, the author’s refusal to comply with his parent’s expectations is a testament to his strong-willed personality; despite his mother’s desire for him to become a teacher and his father’s ambition for him to pursue a career in high-end business, the author chose to follow his passion for mountaineering.

The author’s intrepid spirit took him on a journey to explore the mountains of East Africa and rock climb in Mexico and the Sierra, which helped him overcome disappointment and become more resilient. This book is a brave and cathartic way for the author to express his buried feelings and emotions. As a reader, I couldn’t help but empathize with the author’s difficult childhood and the obstacles he faced. Throughout the book, the author’s independent and daring nature shines through, from his purchase of a bicycle at a young age, to his early start in the business world at just eleven years old, to his later climbs of the rockiest terrain. The author’s views on education, religion, and love for nature are thought-provoking and insightful. This memoir offers valuable lessons, one of which is that we cannot always control our circumstances. Despite his challenges, the author refused to allow them to define him, instead becoming his own person and living a life that made him happy.

I strongly encourage others to join Paul Anthony on his journey from a difficult childhood to a life filled with adventure in his biography, His Mother’s Son: Memoirs of an Accidental Man, for those who enjoy memoirs and biographies. The author’s story is both engaging and enlightening, offering valuable insights to readers.

Stupid Love 

Stupid Love by Danielle Dexter is a fun, emotional and relatable tale of starting over, in life and love, following a difficult break-up. The lovable main character, Rachel Parker, finally finds the strength to leave a toxic relationship after years of gaslighting and endless broken promises of change. Readers get to join her on her journey of moving back to her hometown. Everything is new, her own apartment, a new job, the new dating scene- but she has a wonderful group of old friends that keep her uplifted and grounded as she navigates everything that comes with her new beginning. 

We follow Rachel and her friends as they experience love and heartbreak while hoping to find ‘the one’ and live happily ever after. They are there for each other as they learn the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of dating and work to find lessons and growth through the hurt they experience. Rachel takes her pain to the page and starts an anonymous blog revealing her experiences, thoughts, and feelings on love which allows readers an even deeper view of how everything she goes through affects her. We watch as she starts to date again, makes questionable choices, loves the wrong men, and ultimately discovers what she really wants and needs from both herself and her partner in a relationship.

This was such a fun read, and I think absolutely every girl can relate to how ‘stupid’ love can be. Dexter writes in a way where you feel she is talking right to you as if she is your best friend telling you about her life. She is genuine, vulnerable, and relatable- writing the thoughts we all have felt in a way that ensures the reader that they are not completely senseless, and definitely not alone, in choosing the wrong men even when they know better.

Stupid Love is a heartwarming story of healing and self-discovery, with the ultimate quest of happiness in love. This is an amazing book for anyone who finds themselves scared to start over or wondering why love is so very complicated.
