*Book of the Day*

In acknowledgement of Black History Month, today’s book comes from @bernicelmcfadden.

The first section of McFadden’s unconventional love story belongs to Campbell. Despite being born to a brokenhearted mother and a faithless father, Campbell still believes in the power of love…if she can ever find it. Living in the same neighborhood, but unknown to Campbell until a chance meeting brings them together, is Donovan, the “little man” of a shattered home–a family torn apart by anger and bitterness.

In the face of daunting obstacles, Donovan dreams of someday marrying, raising a family, and playing in the NBA. But deep inside, Campbell and Donovan live with the histories that have shaped their lives. What they discover–together and apart–forms the basis of this compelling, sensual, and surprising novel.

Get Over It! is a tool and a process that offers readers a path to dominion over their most powerful asset: their mind. In today’s turbulent climate, it can be challenging to stay on top of what is going on around us day-to-day, such as economic shifts, societal breakdowns, and lifestyle changes. We have become disconnected from our personal power, the intuitive light created by our autonomous thoughts. Through Get Over It!, a prayer book with a therapeutic underpinning, Iyanla offers practical tools based on the scientific theory of neuroplasticity, so we can transmute the dominant negative thought patterns (DNTPs) that threaten our sanity and spirituality on a daily basis.

In Get Over It!, Iyanla identifies 42 common DNTPs and breaks them down into three key elements:

   1. The train of thought that produces the pattern

   2. A prayer and affirmation to neutralize the pattern

   3. Self-directed spiritual practices (including meditations) that support the neutralization of the pattern in the mind and bod

Through becoming aware of and neutralizing our DNTPs, we will up our “wattage”: our ability to see and live beyond the influences and turbulence of our external environment.

*Book of the Day*

In acknowledgement of Black History Month, today’s book comes from @ldibrahim.

Moments after Lisbeth is born, she’s taken from her mother and handed over to an enslaved wet nurse, Mattie, a young mother separated from her own infant son in order to care for her tiny charge. Thus begins an intense relationship that will shape both of their lives for decades to come. Though Lisbeth leads a life of privilege, she finds nothing but loneliness in the company of her overwhelmed mother and her distant, slave-owning father. As she grows older, Mattie becomes more like family to Lisbeth than her own kin and the girl’s visits to the slaves’ quarters—and their lively and loving community—bring them closer together than ever. But can two women in such disparate circumstances form a bond like theirs without consequence? This deeply moving tale of unlikely love traces the journey of these very different women as each searches for freedom and dignity.

Book Review: The Marriage Pass by Briana Cole

Dorian and Shantae have been together since college, despite his womanizing ways. On the one year anniversary, she decided to gift her husband a “Marriage Pass”, which is free for one night of pleasure, outside the marriage…no questions asked.

In true @bcoleauthor fashion, there is drama on every page…some more shocking than others, and a trail of clues that will leave you speechless at the end.

I enjoyed this 💎💎💎💎💎 read, and cant wait to hear what everyone else is saying. GO GET THIS BOOK!

*Two For One Today*

In acknowledgement of Black History Month, today’s book comes from Anthony Ray Hinton.

In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama. Stunned, confused, and only twenty-nine years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free.

But with no money and a different system of justice for a poor black man in the South, Hinton was sentenced to death by electrocution. He spent his first three years on Death Row at Holman State Prison in agonizing silence―full of despair and anger toward all those who had sent an innocent man to his death. But as Hinton realized and accepted his fate, he resolved not only to survive, but find a way to live on Death Row. For the next twenty-seven years he was a beacon―transforming not only his own spirit, but those of his fellow inmates, fifty-four of whom were executed mere feet from his cell. With the help of civil rights attorney and bestselling author of Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson, Hinton won his release in 2015.

With a foreword by Stevenson, The Sun Does Shine is an extraordinary testament to the power of hope sustained through the darkest times. Destined to be a classic memoir of wrongful imprisonment and freedom won, Hinton’s memoir tells his dramatic thirty-year journey and shows how you can take away a man’s freedom, but you can’t take away his imagination, humor, or joy.

Book Review: Ethic 2 by Ashley Antoinette

What can I say about book #2? I met characters (Bash and Bleu) that I’ve been hearing about for over a year, and got excited. As for Ethic and Alani, I just wish they would get their stuff together, because they clearly love another. I think Alani more so than Ethic, even though I somewhat feel sorry for her. And God bless her auntie.

Morgan and Messiah had me rooting for them one minute, and frustrated the next. Like, are they going to be together or not! Even though I just met Bleu, there’s something suspicious about her, and I’m determined to find out what it is!

New York Times bestselling author @ashleyantoinette did another stellar job with this book, and even though I found two minor errors, I would still give it 💎💎💎💎💎.

If you haven’t already, go check out this series.
