Intro

Ah! I’ve been itching to do a book review for a while now, but I’ve been binge reading! These novels were an entertaining four-in-one combo that will take you for a ride, I have so many thoughts. Allow me to share them with you!

I took the time to create a YouTube video that glances over the novels in their entirety if you don’t want to read an in-depth description of what I got out of it. Feel free to watch my video below because I’ll give you insight on what we consider as Urban Literature, the things that Granger decided to include in her books, and how we can use Kindle Unlimited to find our next read.

I won’t tell you too much, but overall For The Love of ATL by Desiree Granger is about young adults around the ages of 20-25 who either live near or on a college campus in the middle of ATL. She writes it from rotating first-person point of view in order to highlight all kind of controversy that occurs within black culture, more specifically, inner city Atlanta, Georgia.

In the video, I didn’t do go into too much detail about some of the characters that this entails, however, you can read more below.

I’ve included a talk that Desiree has on her channel where she tells you more about her books. Apparently, these are the very first books she’s written and they comprise of a series which leads itself into other works that have been more recently published. She has her own publication house and has been featured in stores. So, if you’re the kind of reader that wants to follow the growth of an author this is definitely an amazing opportunity for you.

Author of the Day is Ian Lahey. I was drawn to share his work with you because we share a facebook group together where we’re apart of the Indie Coalition. Ian’s short story is really nice, it is creepy, psychological, and thrilling.

If that’s your thing then you can be sure that you’ll be entertained. (At least, I was.) About Ian, he was born in Milan, he has an invisible cat, and he teaches English Literature. If you would like to get to know him then you should check out his blog author’s page on FB or go to Amazon and purchase a novel! Otherwise, just read his story below!

Author of the Day includes Sarah Robinson-Hatch, a student that has a lot of books that she wishes could be read. Sarah’s writing style is quirky, fun, and personable. There’s no way you can not read her words because her personality is all throughout them. If you like to be exposed to new books Sarah is amazing at that as she runs a book club known as the YA Room while keeping you up to date on her blog known as Written Word Worlds. I invite you to get to know Sarah and read the article below!

As of lately, I’ve been taking my time to get to know different writers in order to network and trade ideas. It’s been really fun learning about the various kinds of things that writers are creating. This writer, Shea McGee, I met on Twitter. I invite you to follow her because her work is amazing. I was given the chance to read her first novel, Voices on the Air, and I’m here to not only review it but also her style of writing.
