District Reads

Summer is almost officially here and while there’s tons to do in the city, I plan to spend any free time catching up on some fashion, style, and relationship books. Here are my first 5 on my summer reading list:

1. A Belle In Brooklyn by Demetria Lucas (finished June 13th)

2. Angel’s Laws of Blogging by Angel Laws

3. Platinum by Aliya S. King

4. Effortless Style by June Ambrose

5. Classy by Derek Blasberg

Life-transforming ideas always come to me through books. Bell Hooks

    I read Platinum, and it was awesome. She signed a complimentary copy for at Essence last year. I recently won A Belle in Brookly in a Twitter giveaway, so I can’t wait to get my hands on it before Cocktails With Belle in N.O. I was thisclose to buying classy after I saw it in Urban Outfitters. The pictures inside and chapter titles made me want to snatch it up! Thanks for inspiring more reading on this end. Every good writer has to do it.

    So Platinum is definitely the next read! I’ve heard excellent things about it and you ladies just confirmed it. I’ll be looking for more books to read as the summer progresses. I’ll keep you all in the loop!
