    1. Coffee Will Make You Black was the first grown up book I ever read as a child I ve always been a titles girl, and that one certainly grabbed my attention at the age of 11 or so As such, April Sinclair was my literary introduction to sexual exploration and queerness, and probably one of my first novels that dug deep into race as well So I have a soft spot for her as a figure, even if as an adult sometimes the characters and tropes feel a wee bit stiff.



    2. Nothing particularly original about the premise though you gotta love chicklit whose first line is I am not young, or thin, or white or beautiful but a quick, mostly fun read.



    3. This was just way too much Within the first 50 pages the author hits you with incest, eating disorders, office harassment, coming out of the closet in middle age, being an orphan and the of course the most tired of tired tropes, the lonely fat broken middle aged black woman in search of a good black man It s actually emotionally draining to read all of this, especially since the narrator is totally devoid of humor, wit, warmth, or even than the most basic and immature interests in everything in [...]


    4. Abrupt ending and allI had a hard time with this one Deedee was painfully stereotypical in a lot of ways that are troubling I know not every character can be likeable all the time, but in the end the only character I did like through out was Jade.It s a well written book and not inaccurate for the time.

    6. I picked this book because i m doing lynchburg pub s summer reading challenge, and one of the choices on the menu was to read a book by an african american author Now, it s not to say that i wouldn t pick up a book by an afro american otherwise, but this was of a hey, look for a book by an african american on purpose pick Anyway, this book is really quite good I enjoyed a different perspectiveI unfortunately have read lots of books by white womend now I feel like I ve broadened my range of who [...]


    7. Chicago deejay Dee Dee is 41 and looking for love, and dealing with issues from the past, her wieght, her best friend s coming out, friends marriages, niece and nephew problems, a lawsuit at work, and to top it all off she s taking bellydancing lessons Although this isn t one of my favorite books, it was a quick read and better than I expected.
