Goodreads Review: My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

Three star review, originally posted here on March 29, 2019.

This was fine. It was interesting to get some backstory on Justice Sotomayor and to hear her own voice. I particularly appreciated her take on affirmative action and its role in her life. But the book was also, frankly, a little boring. Maybe even a bit repetitive. And I’m not sure what the better approach would be when a girl goes from the projects to the ivy league to the supreme court, but at times she just comes off as arrogant. Lots of sentences start with “I have a gift for…” or “I have a knack for… and that’s why I’m such a good lawyer. ” But props to her, cuz she’s definitely an impressive figure.
