Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby
I love Samantha Irby. I love her dry delivery, her ability to talk about any subject with wit and dispassion. She is funny and bumbling and seems like someone you could actually hang out with. In other words, I really want to be friends with her. I listened to this one, as I have a few of her other books, and spending time with her was, as always, wonderful.
Cabin Fever by Alisha Rai
A short little romance book by someone who is quickly becoming a fave of mine, but I gotta say, this didn’t hit the mark so well. It seems like it was probably an early piece by her, and just plain wasn’t as well-written as her other books.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
These books are really fun – I read the first one last month, and I think the third is coming soon (?) For sure romance books, and for sure sexy times, but also sweet love stories.
Pride by Ibi Zoboi
I absolutely loved this take on Pride & Prejudice! It was a YA retelling, set in Brooklyn amidst the backdrop of gentrification and focusing on cultural identities. Such a sweet book.
When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole
Another look at gentrification and cultural identity, but this is a thriller/borderline horror book, and it was creepy. When White Supremacy is shown without any filters. Read this book, but probably with the lights on.
