Here ye, here ye! For all my #SmartBrownGirls here is what I read last year in 2018. Check out my video where I give a bit of insight on why I picked up each book and what I thought of the read. A few of the books have inspired video topics or I’ve done reviews on them.

Barracoon inspired a complicated conversation on the role of Africans in selling their own into slavery. I reviewed An American Marriage because it’s really a great ‘homegirl’ discussion. The Hate U Give was a necessary read to accompany my movie review. Lastly, If Beale Street Could Talk was a re-read for me but Barry Jenkins’ movie version deserves all the awards and I was totally gushing in my review.
