Favorite Books So Far

OK, I just wanted to share two of my best books with you guys... 1st we have "Blossom" by Queen Pen. I am actually reading this book again, for the 3rd time and believe me its that good. Now, I heard that a sequel is supposed to be coming out early this year... this is the Club Review from
We all know Queen Pen for her rap game, but now she's trying on a different hat—author. Her debut novel, Blossom is a wake-up call for young girls everywhere.

Blossom is a beautiful young woman who meets and falls for Dude, an older, smooth-talking street hustler. Lavished with expensive jewelry, exotic getaways, and a fierce wardrobe, Blossom gets a taste of "the good life." But she also gets a taste of danger, when she and Dude become the targets of a killer. Worse yet, after the tragic loss of someone close to him, Dude lashes out at Blossom and his love turns cold. Deceit becomes the new foundation of their relationship, and Blossom is left feeling abandoned and betrayed. Will love survive the pull of the streets?"

Now my second fav is "Fabulosity" by Kimora Lee Simmons, in which I am still reading... but it is a complete guide to becoming a successful, independent woman. Courtesy of
"Fabulosity (n): 1: a state of everything that is fabulous 2: a quality ascribed to that which expresses glamour, style, charisma, power, and heart

Kimora Lee Simmons knows what it means to have fabulosity -- and she wants to tell you how to get it.

In this empowering new book, Kimora -- a top model, wife of hip-hop legend Russell Simmons, mother to two daughters, a national media presence, and president and creative director of the multimillion-dollar Baby Phat company -- shares her personal secrets of success and fabulosity.

Kimora knows that in today’s ultracompetitive world, it’s not enough for women just to be smart or dress well. With too much to do and competition everywhere, the savvy woman must know how to combine feminine glamour with professional power, business ambition with personal values, and confidence with heart. Kimora is the living picture of all these things.

What are Kimora’s secrets to achieving her goals, her signature fabulosity? One is her ability to identify and build upon her own unique talents and strengths. In Kimora’s case, she brilliantly combined the two worlds she knows best -- the high fashion and hip-hop scenes -- to create Baby Phat, her ultrasuccessful hip-hop inspired lifestyle brand.

How do you uncover and develop your own special talents? Kimora shares her step-by-step guide to achieving your wildest dreams, including her 16 laws of success, which cover everything you need to become the woman you want to be.

Whether you’re college-educated or street smart, just starting out or at the top of your game, Fabulosity has something to say to you. Learn how to cultivate Power, Independence, Confidence, and Positivity in everything you do, whether it’s finding Mr. Right, snagging that corner office, or rocking the latest fashion trend. Packed with useful lessons and Kimora’s personal tips, this book will be your instruction manual to empowering yourself, turning your individual talents into permanent success, and unleashing your inner fabulosity."

So, make sure you guys check these titles out... they are very good for young ladies like myself... "Blossom" is a Novel that many young ladies in the urban community can relate to, and yet "Fabulosity" is like an urban self help book for young ladies... learn and enjoy reading!
