I have always been an avid reader despite a few lazy years I stopped for some weird reason. That was a long time ago and since then I have been reading like it’s my job (I’m corny. Get over it). Currently, I am reading Helena Andrews, Bitch is the New Black. This was new venture for me because normally I read “chick lit” or female lead murder mysteries like The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murders by Joanne Fluke. Don’t judge me!! I like to read to escape and these cozy books are practically my only source of release.
Helena Andrews has a great memoir! She has been blessed with a very interesting life…the book has been optioned for a movie so–whateve! The book is a bit choppy and jumps around a lot but I love it anyway. Happy to see a book that hits on many topics that my friends and I discuss on the regular. Andrews brings light to the issues facing young professional African-American females like roles at work, relationships, and life in general. After recently moving back to Louisville, KY (and bored out of my damn mind) I have been asking myself some of these questions more loudly now than before when I had plenty of distractions in DC. So far this book is hitting the mark and I can’t wait to dig back in.
