#KillYourTBR2016 July

  • My Voice ~ Finally a memoir by Angie Martinez, the hip-hop legend of radio! I already started reading and it is everything I hoped it would be. It is filled with details of her childhood, career beginnings with Hot 97 and friendships with hip hop artists and culture. 
  • If I Did It ~ I never intended to read this "confessions of the killer" book written by O.J. Simpson with exclusive commentary by the Goldman family. But with the famous crime story/trial all over the television these days, I downloaded it on a whim. Why not? 
  • Lazaretto ~ With recent events in the news, it seems like the Civil Rights era all over again. Sadly, not much has changed and it is 2016. Lazaretto is a historical novel set in a Philly black community in the aftermath of the Civil War. 
Reading diversely has become popular in the last couple years but I always maintained a diverse selection of books featuring authors and characters of color. I plan to read and review all of the above diverse selections that are For Us, About Us, By Us.
