6 Books I’m Reading This Fall

October 9, 2018Autumn

As much as I love to read I haven’t done my best to stay on top of reading in the last year. However, in the last year, I’ve also made it so I am more intentional in my life and self-care. I speak often about refueling and recharging and for as long as I can remember reading has been my escape. When I was a kid I can easily remember escaping into books like Harry Potter, The Baby-Sitters Club and a slew of James Patterson Women’s Murder Club Series. I decided to pick 6 books every six weeks that I can dedicate my time to reading, here are my fall books.

6 Books I’m Reading This Fall

Fall Books don’t necessarily have to be about fall at all, I chose each book after researching the authors and finding recommendations from other book lovers. For children’s books inspired by fall, Halloween, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving, you can find that here.

1. Black Girl Magic: The Break Beat Poets 

Black Girl Magic continues and deepens the work of the first BreakBeat Poets anthology by focusing on some of the most exciting Black women writing today. This anthology breaks up the myth of hip-hop as a boys’ club and asserts the truth that the cypher is a feminine form.

2. If They Come for Us: Poems 

Poet and co-creator of the Emmy-nominated web series Brown Girls captures her experience as a Pakistani Muslim woman in contemporary America while exploring identity, violence, and healing.

3. Black Queer Hoe 

Black Queer Hoe is a refreshing, unapologetic intervention into ongoing conversations about the line between sexual freedom and sexual exploitation.

4. This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America

Morgan Jerkins is only in her twenties, but she has already established herself as an insightful, brutally honest writer who isn’t afraid of tackling tough, controversial subjects. In This Will Be My Undoing, she takes on perhaps one of the most provocative contemporary topics:

What does it mean to “be”—to live as, to exist as—a black woman today? This is a book about black women, but it’s necessary reading for all Americans.

5. Own Your Glow – A Soulful Guide to Luminous Living And Crowing The Queen Within

6. The Sun Does Shine – How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row 

The Sun Does Shine is an extraordinary testament to the power of hope sustained through the darkest times. Destined to be a classic memoir of wrongful imprisonment and freedom won, Hinton’s memoir tells his dramatic thirty-year journey and shows how you can take away a man’s freedom, but you can’t take away his imagination, humor, or joy.
