Book Review: My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

on December 8, 2018


Before reading this book, the only thing I knew about Sonia Sotomayor was that she is a Supreme Court judge. Her book “My Beloved World” gave me a new appreciation for her and her work, including her advocacy for Hispanics, diabetics, and women.

I did expect to hear a bit more about Judge Sotomayor’s beliefs and opinions, but she kept the primary focus of this book on her experiences as a human. Her stories, some of which wandered at times, discuss her childhood, college education at Princeton and Yale, and her law career.

Overall, I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. The content is engaging and well-written. However, I think the book would have impacted me more if Judge Sotomayor had narrated it.

In general, I enjoyed reading about Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s life. She proves in this memoir that she’s a dedicated, talented and smart woman who shows that girls can indeed do anything.
