Long before her stint on Starz’ Power, La La Anthony was a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment business. I grew up watching her co-hosting MTV’s TRL and hosting other shows, as well as starring in movies and TV shows. On the interviewing side, I loved her classy interviewing style, while still managing to keep control during shows. So, of course, when I heard she was coming out with a book detailing rules to success, I had to order it.Read More

STAY by Jamie Lee A Fighting Chance Novel Book 2
A chance meeting. One immediate reaction. Two unforgettable nights. A connection that cannot be forged or forgotten.
Tess Cedric was unforgivingly gorgeous and recklessly magnetic. From the moment we met, I was drawn to him without explanation, needed him without apology.
They say timing is everything. I’ve learned that sometimes, “time” can steamroll all over your innocent-bystander heart, leaving you confused, uncertain, and full of unanswered questions. That’s what it felt like the night Cedric left—disappeared without reason or a promise to return.
Now, after months away, he’s back and timing is, once again, a huge slap in the face. Especially when his reason for leaving followed him home.
His past meets his present and we’re forced to figure out what that means for us.
We could have it all.
If only he would STAY.
Cedric Tess was like no other—beautifully vibrant and relentlessly tempting. One taste wasn’t enough.
Two only made me want her more. But my life was no longer my own. It belonged to another and I had no choice but to leave.
But now I’m back, and what I want and what I can have are two completely separate things.
They say timing is everything. I say circumstance trumps all.
We have the chance for something great, something one of a kind.
If only I could STAY.
STAY is Book 2 in the A Fighting Chance series but can be read as a stand-alone. You can meet Tess and Cedric in Book 1 – Runaway Love.

Hemingway drags out 4 days over 500 pages but I'm not complaining. (He takes his time crafting the love scenes as much as the war scenes.) He writes about the complexities of life with the same ease one makes love -- fluidly and unbound. With the same fluidity, the main character, Roberto, manages to fall in love and die in the most beautiful ways a man can.
Hemingway drops us into mountains somewhere in the middle of the Spain Civil War, introducing us to every person he meets with the brutal truth of an outsider. Living in a cave with commoners turned guerrilla, Roberto has to build himself an army and blow up a bridge in just 4 days. Maybe this is only possible in a book: for a lone soldier to befriend people enough to convince them to join his fight and give their lives for their country. Roberto spends his days learning people, giving orders and learning to give people orders. He spends his nights in a sleeping bag, waiting for his lover to arrive and help him escape, if only for a moment, into a place of pure bliss and happiness.Read More

The old man knew. For the most part, life takes faith and patience. I couldn't have chose a better book to read during my trip to Cuba to find my long-lost family and (forgive my Catholicism) I think God chose this for me as God seemed to guide and protect the old man.. Santiago is an old, poor Cuban fisherman said to be riddled with misfortune. "The Old Man and the Sea," is a tale of how friendship can give you the strength to hope.
Hemingway's tale opens with introducing us to Santiago and "The Boy"'s relationship. We never learn The Boy's name, we only witness his loyalty to the old man, who had first taught him to fish. After a few weeks without catching fish, The Boy's family makes him work on a different boat but the boy still makes sure to check on Santiago to make sure he is well and that he has eaten -- how many of our modern day friends do that for us?
No matter the supposed "bad luck" Santiago has, he decides to go out to the deep and find the big fish he feels is destined for him. Before he heads out, he thinks to himself, "I have no luck anymore. But who knows? Maybe today. Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready. (32)" You already know Santiago catches that fish, and you should know that it isn't easy. It doesn't matter how lucky you are, you must be prepared to fight for what you want. And sometimes, the fight is where you learn the most.
Although he suffered terrible in the middle of the ocean by himself, he was never by himself. Not just though (literally) talking to himself, but in remembering "The Boy". He care and compassion for the boy -- and his desire to prove that he was not unlucky -- gave him reason to power through and succeed. He often says, "If the boy was here," and the same through is trumped by "but The Boy is not here" and so he must complete the task on his own. When Santiago returns back to shore a few days later, the boy is the first to check on him. Bruised and battered from his time out on the sea, the old man is barely responsive, but the boy, with tears streaming down his face, brings him his food and coffee as he typically would. His heart is broken by what his friend must have endured without him, and that is the true testament of friendship: Friends miss you when you are gone; and friends come back to you.

God Help the Child is Toni Morrison's twelfth fiction work and still, she is (HANDS DOWN) my favorite author because of the way she can deliver one story from so many perspectives. Her mastery of language and knowing exactly what to say to make you feel is beyond schooling -- it's magic. The most powerful thing about the beauty of Morrison's prose is how wonderfully she describes the disturbing and painful experiences her characters go through.Read More

This story tugs at your heart. We can read history books all we want, but this is a wonderful tale of an individual life. Ernest Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms" is a story about love and war. The American solider is fighting on the Italian side during World War I and we get to follow him on his daily conquests - whether it be women or in his job or riding around with the ambulance. The whole time he's at war, you're thinking about his lady back home even if he doesn't want to. With every page you turn, you find yourself praying for a man who doesn't believe in anything... That, in my opinion, is great writing. Hemingway made me care.Read More

People often refer to books as a method of escaping reality... But we forget how critical they are to navigating reality. I swear by books. I think they can cure everything. For that reason, as my life takes the natural twists and turns we all go through, I was desperate for something that would elp relieve my stress and found myself at Barnes & Noble for some really great, really short reads..Read More

While I was reading this book, there were times I had to hold my breath and force myself to turn the page. Near the end, I found myself sitting on the train with the book held up to my face, peeking through the spaces between my fingers, fearing the next sentence. "No Matter How Much you Promise to Cook or Pay the Rent You Blew is Cauze Bill Bailey Ain't Never Coming Home Again," by Edgardo Vega Yunqué, is as long as the title implies, and just as complex. But when you're trying to describe the racial identity of a country like the United States, it will take a while... because it's a bit scary.
The saddest love story #OfAllTime. George Orwell's 1984 was published in 1949. It's amazing how much we think the future is going to change. This satirical novel, supposing what the world would be like in 35 years, is a great example of how much we fear the future --even today, I believe. The biggest fear some of us have is losing our freedom and falling under the totalitarian rule of another. Books like this are amazing because they can be applied to current politics, future politics and even our day-to-day lives. is there any way for another person/body to govern you efficiently?Read More
