somewhere in the title: black

I was going to do a post on the recent trends found on Twitter and Tumblr involving the hashtag black–which I’ll save for a future post–but I haven’t been able to leisure read for a while so I decided to look up some good reads to add to my list for when I have time, and if you enjoy reading too, perhaps you can add them to yours. Naturally, they have the word “black” somewhere in the title.

The first interesting read I found was a book from author Robert M. Drake. The book is called Black Butterfly.

It contains a collection of experiences and memories of Drake’s life after one of his brothers died. “The black butterfly is a symbol for the transformation of rebirth after death.”

Another book is The Black Veil by T.J. Charles.

Chyna has it all: a good modeling career, a caring brother, a romance with a multimillionaire, but, she is having reoccuring nightmares of her dead mother and suspicion that things aren’t what they seem. And she is soon faced with life or death situations when the dangerous nature of
her reality sets in.blackveil_bookAnd if you haven’t heard about it by now, for whatever reason, perhaps you should. I’ve seen both seasons of the show and am counting down the days until June 12th when the third season is released on Netflix, but I have yet to read the book. Of course I could only be referring to the #1 New York Times Bestselling memoir by Piper KermanOrange is the New Black: My Year in a Woman’s Prison.

Kerman writes about her transition from civilian life to inmate life when she had to serve a fifteen month sentence after a crime from her past caught up to her. She also writes why so many women get sent to prison and what happens to them while they’re there.

I encourage you to search Amazon.com or goodreads.com, or whatever other site, and let me know if you find any other interesting books with “black” in the title. Or if you just know of some, let me know and then I can add them to this post or a future post.
