📚 Bookish Thoughts 💭

Scandalous • Cheeky • Admirable

💬 “Can I do it? I’d rather not try and fail.

That’s stupid talk Maya. Every try will not succeed. But if you’re going to live, live at all, your business is trying…You fail, you get up and try again.”

🗯“I had to trust life, since I was young enough to believe that life loved the person who dared to live it.”


📚 The Heart of a Woman by Maya Angelou

❓If you wrote a book about your life, would anybody read it?

💡 I could only hope to be as cool as Maya Angelou.


Synopsis: The Heart of a Woman is book four of her autobiography series! I knew why the caged bird sang, but I didn’t know it kept on singing. 😂

🔑 This book spills the tea on
* Single Motherhood
* Dealings with Billie Holiday 😒
* Meeting civil rights leaders ✊🏾
* Living in California to NYC
* Married life in Egypt


❤️ This was a quick and exciting read! Maya Angelou is a phenomenal storyteller and her non fiction feels like girl talk!

💔 There was nothing not to love. I was mostly peeved with the no good people in her life.

 Recommendations: Maya Angelou fanatics.

 ✨It’s Day 7 Book Everyone Should Read on the #BlackResilienceBookstaTour hosted by @prettylittlebookshelf ⠀
✨Don’t just stop at reading this! Read all seven of Maya Angelou’s autobiographies.

Be sure to checkout the other stops (highlighted in my stories).
