Headline: There Goes the Neighborhood
Welfare Wifeys by K’wan continues with the characters Animal, Don B., Gucci and the Big Dawg crew. Animal, who is now a big-time hip hop star, has relocated to Texas but is now returning to New York for a promotional tour and he is back for revenge. His girlfriend, Gucci, is overjoyed that he is returning but she does not know that he has an ulterior motive.
In Welfare Wifeys some new characters are introduced by the names of Malika, Tionna, and Jada. Malika is a young woman living in public housing and is trying to escape her rough life by having a relationship with a married man. Section 8 recently relocated Tionna from an inner city apartment to an Upper Manhattan high rise. Her life seems to be coming together until someone from her past arrives. Jada is cold-blooded due to her former environment and she has her eyes set on sitting on top of the ghetto throne.
Just like his other works, K’wan has filled Welfare Wifeys with deceit, drugs, violence, grit, double crossing, and sex. This book could be confusing if the reader has not read his previous works as he does make reference to some backstories. I recommend Welfare Wifeys to those that have read the other books in the Hood Rat saga. K’wan once again proves why he is considered one of hip-hop fiction’s hottest writers.

Eat the Cookies…Buy the Shoes by Joyce Meyer

Eat the Cookies…Buy the Shoes by Joyce Meyer


Celebrate Everyday!
Rating: 4
‘Eat the Cookie … Buy the Shoes’ by Joyce Meyers is all about celebrating no matter the current situation in your life. Joyce points out how we should celebrate no matter how small an accomplishment may be. Cookies and shoes are metaphors for simply having balance in your life and giving yourself rewards instead of deprivation.
This book is a great motivational, self-help book based on Christian principles and scriptures. But, while Joyce Meyer references many Biblical scriptures it is not overly “preachy” or trying to really push a doctrine on the reader. Throughout ‘Eat the Cookie…Buy the Shoes’ there are several real life stories illustrated so the reader can relate the principles to their personal life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to others.

Headline: Finish What You Start
Caught in the Middle by Jacqueline D. Moore is definitely a page-turner and a life lesson about finishing what you start before moving on. James, who is a faithful and hardworking man, was surprised and totally shocked that his wife, Toni decided she wanted to a divorce one day. He is completely blindsided and begins to give up on love. He meets Karen one day, who is a divorced mother of two, and is immediately drawn to her.
I do not want to give away too much of the plot as it is best to read for yourself. This story is truly one of twists and turns as one would suspect when you have one individual that realizes they do not want to let go when the other person has moved on with their life. This story shows just how far a person may go if pushed to their edge. This book will have you on the edge of your seats until the very last page.
I would not mind reading a sequel to this book to truly see how the story ends. Caught in the Middle was excellently written by Jacqueline D. Moore. I look forward to reading more from this author!
