My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies [Book Review]

For Free Comic Book Day, May 4, I picked up a really cool comic that I think everyone should read. See my full review below: Until next time, remember to give time time and to have the best day of your life–on purpose!

Difficult Women by Roxane Gay (Book Review)

I could not allow for Women’s History Month to end without takin a moment to recognize a book that I hold dear. Not only is the book superbly written, but it honors the entire being of a women in a way that makes one feel whole. It is uncomfortable in its rawness at times, but…

Children of Blood and Bone (Book Review)

What’s the best book you read last year? It was such a good year of reading for me, but one of my topic books was definitely Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. What makes the story so beautiful for me is the fantasy realm that I was transported to each time I opened…

Nancy Drew (Comic Book Review)

Did you spend hours as a child searching for clues and solving mysteries with Nancy Drew? If so, you will approach this series with a much different perspective than I did. I found the series to be enjoyable, though a bit disappointing in the end. To watch my full review, click play below :): Did…

Bone by Yrsa-Daley Ward (Book Review)

To say that Bone is a book of poetry is a bit of an oversimplification. Bone is a vehicle a griot used to transport her stories. One thing that becomes immediately apparent is that Yrsa-Daley Ward is a storyteller before she is a poet. Her poems weave us through complex romantic interactions and even more…

Harry Potter and Our Modern Times (Book Review)

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been a diehard Harry Potter fan for many years. What I tend to love most about the books is that they’re always a great escape from reality; what is less exciting is when the books become a reflection of your current reality. In Harry Potter there are many valuable…

Midnight III (Book Review)

If you’re like me you probably fell in love with the character Midnight upon reading Sister Souljah’s, The Coldest Winter Ever. As Sister Souljah states, “he’s what every woman wants in a man…” Yeah, I used to think so when I was younger, but as you get older you realize Midnight is slightly flawed. Don’t…

The Warmth of Other Suns (Book Review)

The Great Migration—I honestly do not recall having this as a topic of discussion at any point of my education. Not even during Black History Month lessons. I just assumed that eventually, newly freed slaves just sorta drifted to their permanent location. Well, this book was the history lesson I never had and never knew…
