Black Stories Matter – 15 Great Books That Make You Think

Black Stories Matter – 15 Great Books That Make You Think

Books That Make You think
We live, we love, we breathe. All our lives are a precious gift God gave us.
Still, we have to explain to our kids, why people think that they are in a position to decide only by the skin color who is considered the right or wrong human being.
We can’t face the idea or the stories about WWII and all that sufferance that families had to endure.
Still, racism seems to raise from our bones and our children.
In this time, where COVID is not the only pandemic, I keep asking myself how it is possible for a mother explaining RACISM to a kid, which words we have to use to describe the world where sadly, human rights are so easily violated.
But WE HAVE TO. Because kids are our best chance for a better future.
As a book reader, I’ve then started thinking about books by black authors that had a great impact on me, and several ones came to my mind. But honestly, it was not so easy, because I do not always check for the author’s photo and it happens very often that I miss the skin color.
Anyway, I’m going to share today what I think are books that make you think, and a few recommendations I have on my backlist, which are considered amazing reads and that I hope to review soon for all of you to read.
I truly hope these books will make a difference for you too because BLACK LIVES MATTER, BLACK STORIES MATTER.
And of course, I’d happy to listen to your thoughts on any of these books or if you have any favorites to share.
Happy Reading!

Happy and You Know It 1

Happy and You Know It

by Laura Hankin

Filled with humor and shocking twists, Happy and You Know It is a brilliant take on motherhood – exposing it as yet another way for society to pass judgment on women – while also exploring the baffling magnetism of curated social-media lives that are designed to make us feel unworthy. But, ultimately, this dazzling novel celebrates the unlikely bonds that form, and the power that can be unlocked, when a group of very different women is thrown together when each is at her most vulnerable. 

After her former band shot to superstardom without her, Claire reluctantly agrees to a gig as a playgroup musician for wealthy infants on New York’s Park Avenue. Claire is surprised to discover that she is smitten with her new employers, a welcoming clique of wellness addicts with impossibly shiny hair, who whirl from juice cleanse to overpriced miracle vitamins to spin class with limitless energy.

The Summer Deal

by Jill Shalvis

When I think about beach reads, I also think about Jill Shalvis’ novels who usually give me all the feels, and this summer, she comes with a new book, whose cover only makes me want to absolutely grab a copy.

The Summer Deal is a friends-to-frenemies-to-lovers story… Add in a few secrets. Shake. Stir. Then read on a lazy summer day at the beach…

Brynn Turner desperately wishes she had it together, but her personal life is like a ping-pong match that’s left her scared and hurt after so many attempts to get it right. In search of a place to lick her wounds and get a fresh start, she heads back home to Wildstone.

Little Fires Everywhere

Little Fires Everywhere

by Celeste NG

“To say I love this book is an understatement. It’s a deep psychological mystery about the power of motherhood, the intensity of teenage love, and the danger of perfection. It moved me to tears.” —Reese Witherspoon

From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, now a Hulu original series starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.

Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood—and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
