These are reviews of books I have read.

Strong Boys Fragile Men by George Hines Jr

This was by far the most impactful book of the year for me. It’s a brutally honest recollection of the authors sexual lifestyle as a young man coupled with self-reflection and admonishment. While there are scenes in the book that any woman can enjoy, this feels like a must read for every man in their ...

Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Another book etched off my list! After thoroughly enjoying Half of a Yellow Sun, I gave the author another go around and I’m happy that the outcome was similar. Now I stopped reading at a voracious pace this year, heck, I believe this is my 1st completed book this year! I understand when you (yes ...

Book Reviews (2 for 1): The Other Wes Moore & The Whisper of Fire

Coming to you with 2 new book reviews. With everything going on in life and the holiday season coming up, it only makes sense to consolidate these two reviews into one. If you aren’t privy to my book reviews yet, I give a brief summary about the book without providing any spoilers for anyone interested ...

Black Privilege by Charlamagne tha god

Their most outspoken host Charlamagne the god built a reputation on brash, in your face, straight to the point discourse. I also listened to his podcast The Brilliant Idiots and watched a few of his ...

My Review of “The Alchemist” by Paul Coelho

I finally finished reading another book, and although this was a short read, life has its way of distracting you. The Alchemist is one of those books that everyone tells you to read. I’ve heard famous people also reference this book with my most recent memory being Big Sean. I listen to a lot of ...

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

My book of the month for February was one to write home about. Literally. I LOVED THIS BOOK. I must let it sink in before I begin to rank where it stands in my growing list of influential books read. This is the 1st book I have ever read by the famous and prized author ...

Bitter Leaf by Chioma Okereke

I have to start off by saying how biased I was with my book selection. I gravitated towards this title solely based on my Nigerian ethnicity and heightened awareness of influential women. Nonetheless, anyone can pick this book up and fall in love with it like I did. I borrowed this from my sister Jeanny ...
