Widowed: A Review

Widowed was a wonderful story from start to finish. I already knew Arista would be a character I could connect with from the moment I read the first few pages. The story starts with Arista grieving her late husband, Paul. From there she meets Donald and that's when the sparks start to fly. I liked Donald instantly. Normally I'm not a fan of the older woman, younger man story lines as most authors tend to try too hard to make the connection seem authentic. However, Angelia's characters' connection seemed authentic from the jump.

Widowed told the story of woman who had loved and loved hard, but when it was time to move on, she wasn't so sure. It took a lot of soul searching for Arista to really give herself another chance at love. Donald was the perfect man for her to do this with. Tall, dark, and fine in every sense of the word.

And then you had Jackson and my mother always said if can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all. So I won't. LOL! Yona was something else altogether. But I can see how Donald's father would be taken with her. I'd love to get awakened and put to sleep the same way to be honest. LOL! Johnetta, Donald's mother, tickled me pink. She was a riot and I always love Elders who have a dry wit like sense of humor. Now Paul's secrets caught me completely off guard and I was ready for that at all!

All-in-all, I give Widowed five pages (think five-stars). Nikki-Michelle recommends this book.

Nah, sis. You're just being ig'nant!

I can tell most of you have never been to jail. I have more than once. First time I was a teen without a care in the world. Second time, I was a wife and mother of two. My youngest baby was still a newborn.Titty milk was still leaking from my boobs. And while I was in there for less than twenty-four hours the second time, that ish damn near drove me mad. To be away from my kids and not know one way or the other when I was going to be released and to be locked in with women who bragged about stabbing, beating, and hurting other people for fun? The guards didn't give two shits that I was in there for a non-violent offense. They didn't give a sh*t about me wanting to call my husband and check on my kids. They treated my black arse just like they treated the women who were in there for doing mess I will never be wild or crazy enough to do. It was then I realized that while I was willing to throw hands, I was in no way a young woman with nothing to lose anymore. Being away from my…

YOUNG but Grown...Womanish: A Review

So, I finally got a chance to read and finish YOUNGbut Grown Womanish. Out of all the books I’ve read by Mrs. Menchan, the Womanish Series is my all-time favorite. No other author I’ve read has the ability to tell a series of short stories the way she does. The way she starts the stories draw you in instantly and you just have to keep reading to see how it all ends…or in some, cases how it all begins. How she is able to capture the whole essence of a story in just a few pages is something not many can do. No one tells a series of unfortunate—and sometimes fortunate—events like she does.
From Delva Wright and her philandering husband to Damon and his…let’s just say free spirit wife all the way around to A and Fredo and his sister, Sand, I was intrigued and entertained. Nothing tickled me more than the end of the story with Marbra though. She was still too dang giving. LOL! I felt a little sad about Sara and I hope she is doing better wherever she is. I don’t know what to say about Gert…

New Release: The Promised Land by Nikki-Michelle & Brenda Hampton

One question. What would you do, if you woke up one day and life as you’ve known it changed forever? For Aubrey Evans and Melody Daniels, along with their families, that day has now arrived. Their lives will never be the same, and after believing that silence is golden as it pertains to the biggest sins of America, they will be forced to confront White Supremacy head on and fight for what they once relished as FREEDOM.

Succumbing to hatred and bigotry is not an option for Malcolm Garvey. He’s an activist who has intensely studied the Promised Land; a land that was created by The Masters who are determined to take their country back. By any means necessary they plan to do it, but will the strength of black men and women, along with their efforts to unite, be enough to put an end to the gut-wrenching madness they all endure in the name of hate? No one could’ve predicated it would come to this, not even in their wildest dreams. But when reality kicks in and the truths behi…
