Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well. Today I’m sharing another review to end September as we arrive in October, the start of Black History Month!!
Book: The Misadventures of AWKWARD Black Girl by Issa Rae.
This book is great, very funny and entertaining, it’s kind of like an autobiography mixed with a bit of fiction at the same time. Very easy to read and nicely written. I found some sections more interesting than others but overall a really great book. I think my favourite chapter’s are the ABG Guides, although quite stereotypical, it’s all very true and I imagine every black girl out there can relate to something written on the pages.
It’s also a book that I feel like many people would relate to specifically if you’ve got loads of siblings, didn’t have money for expensive things or had divorced parent’s, you might find that you’ve had similar experiences growing up. It’s also so nice to read a book written by a black woman who really draws from her life experiences about growing up and family values in a black house hold. I won’t spoil it too much because there’s so many great stories to read.
You should definitely check out the YouTube series: The Misadventures of AWKWARD Black Girl as it’s hilarious and so well written. It’s about 7 years old but and definitely low budget but at the same time really entertaining which shows you don’t need loads of money to make a great series. Also, there’s a new season finale of Insecure coming out which I imagine will be just as good, based on the trailer!
