Pricey: Playing In Traffic by Fabiola Joseph


Envy by Domonique Pequet Review

I found the Envy to be very entertaining. The story truly drew me in, once I started  reading  the book I couldn't  put it down. The cover for this ebook was very well designed. Looking at the title and the green backdrop instantly made me wonder who was going to turn out to be the envious one. The typesetting flowed very smoothly. There were a handful of grammatical errors yet they didn't take away from the essence of the story. The authors ability  to  switch easily from a narrator speaking to the main character  speaking is very refreshing  because  she gives you a very clear background of each character's  story as well as what the main character  was feeling and going through in the present time. I would definitely read part two to this book when it's available. If you're looking for a book with action, romance, and suspense this is definitely  a book you'd  want to read.

Until Tomorrow Comes by LaDonna Marie Revie

I found Until Tomorrow Comes  to be a great read. I could really relate to the poetry, each poem was emotional but I found encouragement while reading the poetry. The author did an excellent job. I loved the typesetting it was very easy to read. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Love Changes by Eartha Watts Hicks Review

Love Changes followed Mia on a wonderful and exciting journey. At first glance I didn't think I'd enjoy the book. I took a second look at the cover of the book and changed my mind. The design is simple black, red and white with about three pictures of a beautiful black woman. One of the pictures is featured on the spin of the book and though the picture is small it grabbed my attention. The editor did a great job editing the book. I found little to no mistakes. The story was very relateable. I found it very refreshing to read about someone with a normal job, normal life, and a normal family as opposed to reading about dope boys and rich people problems. This book was definitely a refreshing read and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.

Too Early for Flowers by Kurt Sipolski Review

This books takes you on an amazing journey of a young woman raising a son diagnosed with Polio. This book is one that is sure to make you cry, laugh, and be thankful for the things that we tend to take for granted in life. The writers uses very descriptive words which help to identify with what each character is going through in the book. Though the front cover is quite plain with only a beautiful woman on it this is definitely not a book you would want to judge by the cover. The book features very minimum editing mistakes which do not make the story hard to follow and the typesetting  is just right.

Wounded by Ben Burgess Jr Review

This book was a great read, however I felt like the story drug on. I love when a book has a lot of action. I loved the cover of this book. After reading the synopsis I had judged the book and I wasn't sure if I wanted to read it. I had never read about lesbians. I am so glad that I read this book. I felt the emotions of Sam and Sasha. This was a great read and it lets you know that women can be predators too.

The Hustle by Donisha Derice and Jai Darlene Review

I've had this book for a while and i don't know I didn't read it sooner. Its a very good read. The character development was really great. The plot was not not hard to figure out. Sisters Beau and Belle were night and day but their love for family was the same. I loved the fact that the authors keep me on my toes with the many twist and turns throughout the entire story.  It's a street story with a mix of Christian values. The editing was really good, I don't have to guess what the authors were saying which is always a plus. I read the paperback version and the typesetting is great as well. Now I don't care to much for the cover but the story inside made up for it. I'm excited to see what's going to happen in  "Another Hustle." Well done ladies, you have definitely marked your spot as new authors to watch in 2015.

Unstable Creature by Angel B Review

Sophia couldn't win for losing when it came to love. No matter how hard she tried she never got the love she gave in return. That was the only thing missing ion her life. This is a very good read that teaches you a valuable lesson about who you choose to love. the story kept my attention and the ending caught me by a surprise. The editing and typesetting typesetting were really good, but I didn't to much care for the cover. In my opinion u can tell that the picture of the lady in the chair was photo shopped.

I give this book 4.0 Pens

Weep Of The Willow by Iris Fambro Carter

Atlanta, Georgia 1983––Eva has been keeping a secret from her sister Annie. On her deathbed, Eva has to clear her conscience. It is time to right old wrongs.

Crabtree, Georgia 1921––Luella Mae Jameson has found herself in the last place she ever expected to be…living life as the town whore. Luella Mae’s husband has run off with the first “river-hipped thang” that crossed his path, leaving her to take care of herself and their young daughter, Eva, the only way she knows how. After visiting the voodoo priestess, who cast two spells to give Luella Mae her heart’s desire, her life changes in ways she never expected.

Jimmy Thompson is everything society expects him to be…a successful businessman, married to a well-bred southern woman, and above all, a staunch racist and member of the Ku Klux Klan. The only problem is he’s been in love with a colored woman for most of his life and then he’s given the opportunity to have her.

In the midst of such violent times, where the lines have been drawn between segregated whites and the colored folk of Crabtree, Georgia, Weep Of The Willow dares to share their story of forbidden love and secrets.
