If you enjoy reading, you are aware of the value that books have in our lives. You must appreciate reading a book while sipping tea while snuggled up in a nice blanket because I sure do! When we read a book and lose ourselves in a fictional setting while identifying with the characters or relating to their personalities, it feels like bliss.
There is always room for a little inspiration because, as a woman, every day might feel like a struggle. We are stronger than ever when we read deep, important words, and we welcome any further boost to our self-assurance.
Parable Of The Sower By Octavia Butler
Lauren Olamina, the main character, is a 15-year-old with the ability to physically feel other people’s emotions. Lauren’s hyper-empathy aids her in a struggle for survival as she and her family are surrounded by tragedies. Butler writes a tale that illuminates a dystopian society that is all too familiar now. Never has science fiction seemed so plausible. Related video: Books written by Black authors you should read (WTMJ Milwaukee, WI)
