KRead: i think i’ll make it: a true story of lost and found by Kat Hurley

71c1v+7i6VLAmazon has struck again. I was looking for a new book to read after “The Sitar” disappointment.  I figured mixing my love for all things lesbian and biographies would be a no brainer.

I read the synopsis on Amazon and I was sold. It took me a lot longer to finish it than I thought, but I finally did while soaking up the Dominican rays of Puerto Plata.

Plot Snapshot: After a childhood trauma, the loss of love and the lack of professional traction, Kat traveled to the beaches of Hawaii to find herself.

This is a book I am glad I committed to finish. I saw a bit of myself in her story and a bit of my friends as well. Personally it served as a cautionary tale about lesbian relationships when property is involved o_O.  There  were definitely compelling parts that kept me reading. This is just one of those books that I would have liked a bit shorter.

Toward the end it gets a little “self-helpish” for my taste.  I know it was a story of rebirth and renewal so it should have been expected but I am not a Wayne Dyer… Oprah’s Super Sunday kind of person so those portions didn’t move me. I am sure there are a lot of people that would get more from this book than I did.

Anyone read it? Love to hear your thoughts.
