7 BOOKS I WILL BE READING FOR SPRING 2017

It's that time of the year where I dig into my amazon wishlist for books I've always wanted to read. I just finished reading The Invisible Man and boy was I blown away. 

I get ecstatic at the thought of a new read and now I have 7 to look forward to. After my Productivity post, the first order of action was getting my reads situated. Reading is one of my favorite past time, so without further do, here are my reads in no particular order. 

Please let me know if you are interested and we can get started together. Sorta have a book club, I will be posting on Facebook say every week. Give each book two weeks to finish. Let's get enlightened oh ye my fellow bibliophiles.

Every time I make my visit to Barnes and Noble, this book seems to draw my eyes. I read the back cover one time and put it back real fast. My emotions were not ready. It screamed heavy!!!  I say that because the book is written by a guy who is studying to be a neurosurgeon at Stanford. At the young age of 36, he gets diagnosed by Stage 4 Lung Cancer. He starts writing this book trying to find out the meaning of life knowing that we are all susceptible to death. He died while writing this book. I will have some tissues on stand by.

Oh Zadie. The fact that she uses bright colors for her cover is beyond beautiful. Swing is a type of dance that started in the 20's with heavy influence from Jazz. Zadie is a master storyteller and in this book she explores friendship and race between two girls.

Steve Biko was a powerful figure in the fight against Apartheid in South Africa. I have wanted to read this book forever! The fact that the book is titled, "I write what I like." gives me a no hold barred feel about this book. It touches on racism, postcolonialism and black nationalism.  I want to read more books written by African Authors. I am open to recommendations.

This book has been recommended to me so many times I have lost count. Junot Diaz recieved a Pulitzer Prize for this book. It will be an Epic read. That wraps up my Seven reads for this season. Summer starts June 22nd, I believe I have plenty of time to get done.
