More Than Enough

by Elaine Welteroth

This book helped me feel known. So many things that Elaine writes about, I have experienced in my own personal way as a 20-something Black woman navigating life in the United States! This book is definietly a confidence booster!


The Wedding Date

by Jasmine Guilroy

I am always on a search to find Black women fiction authors. I found this author through a Google search and found all of her books at Target! This was a lighthearted read that kept me trying to tell the main characters what to do!


The Will to Change

by bell hooks

The men in my life have loved me well, but I have also seen them hurt due to the patriarchal culture we all live under here in the United States. Read this book if you want to feel understood, and if you want to do the work to making our now and future a better place for ALL of us!


The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters

by Balli Kaur Jaswal

I read this book with the educators' book club at my school. The writing bounces between the lives of three sisters who are united over the death of their mother. This book reminded me to truly value the people I love the most in life, and to understand the background story before jumping to conclusions!


Little Fires Everywhere

by Celeste Ng

Usually I am a book or film person, not both. So when the show came out I knew actually I wanted to read the book since everyone raved about how good it was. I thouroughly enjoyed this book! It really speaks to the nuance of people, something I have been reflecting upon over the past 5 or so years of my life. 



by Michelle Obama

Reading this book was felt like snuggling up with a warm blanket and a great cup of hot tea. I was amazed at the honesty of Michelle to tell her truth. The honesty about relationships and going along for the ride of her husband's dream was a breath of fresh air.


American Marriage

by Tayari Jones

Whoa, whoa, whoa! This writing in this book is spectacular! I am amazed on EVERY page. This book hits deep and touches on true love and the affects of racism in the United States on the Black family.
