Sometimes I Trip On How Happy We Could Be

"We both let that sentence sit on the table between the salt and pepper shakers." ~ 17%

Nichole Perkins has an essay for everything relevant. Being a Southern black woman, online dating, physical health and shape, pop culture, friendships, depression, feminism and more. There is an essay for everyone to relate to. I see why Buzzfeed includes it in "Most Anticipated Books of 2021."

Journalist Nichole Perkins goes through twenty years of pop culture's impact on her life: music, media and the internet. She is unapologetic in her true storytelling. By the end of this memoir, readers will be left with self-awareness and confidence. I certainly am!

"Hear the dark liquor of her laughter rippling behind her sentences." ~ Saeed Jones

I live for this book title! It is one of my favorite lyrics of all time. So I chose to read this memoir based on the title alone. The came the cover art: brown glowing skin and long coffin-shaped nails with an outline design. Add the necklace with a heart-shaped charm and it was like looking in the mirror. What is in between of the front and back cover is nothing short of a good read.

Happy Early Pub Day, Nichole Perkins! Sometimes I Trip On How Happy We Could Be will be available Tuesday, August 17.
