Get in here book lovers and don’t say I never do anything for you! Most readers enjoy reading books to escape from stress and daily realities of life; I personally love books that focus on Christians Life, Coming of Age, Fantasy, Inspiration and History, if you are looking for books to add to your library, I would be sharing some that I have read or that I have been referred to, either way, they are good books you should read. I made sure to include excerpts!
FRANCINE RIVERS – BRIDGE TO HAVEN
“To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua–Abra’s closest friend–watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who proclaims his love and lures her to Tinseltown.”
DOROTHY KOOMSON – THE WOMAN HE LOVED BEFORE
“Are you her? Are you the one he’s with now? Is that why you’ve come looking for me? If you aren’t reading this letter fifty or sixty years from now then it’s likely that I’m dead. Probably murdered. Please don’t be upset by that, it probably won’t have been too much of a surprise to me – not with the life I have lived…”
MICHELLE OBAMA – BECOMING
“It sounds a little like a bad joke, doesn’t it? What happens when a solitude-loving individualist marries an outgoing family woman who does not love solitude one bit? The answer, I’m guessing, is probably the best and most sustaining answer to nearly every question arising inside a marriage, no matter who you are or what the issue is: you find ways to adapt. If you’re in it for ever, there’s really no choice.”
TOMI ADEYEMI – CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE
It’s all I can do not to scream. I dig my nails into the marula oak of my staff and squeeze to keep from fidgeting. Beads of sweat drip down my back, but I can’t tell if it’s from the morning heat or from my heart slamming against my chest. Moon after moon I’ve been passed over.
Today can’t be the same.”
TREVOR NOAH –BORN A CRIME
“I was nine years old when my mother threw me out of a moving car. It happened on a Sunday. I know it was on a Sunday because we were coming home from church, and every Sunday in my childhood meant church. We never missed church. My mother was—and still is— a deeply religious woman. Very Christian. Like indigenous peoples around the world, black South Africans adopted the religion of our colonizers. By “adopt” I mean it was forced on us.”
