Nicki Minaj: Hip Pop Moments 4 Life – Isoul Harris

I didn’t write this up yesterday, even though the book went on sale via Amazon on 4/1 simply to avoid the mistake of it potentially being an April Fools Joke but Nicki Minaj is just that type of hustler. Of course she has a book out but thankfully it’s written by the UPTOWN Magazine Editor -In-Chief Isoul Harris. Harris’ unique way of telling stories just might make this an interesting book that does well on the NY Times List but I still feel over saturated by Nicki Minaj as I have been since before Pink Friday even came out. 

Question is, do you want to read the life story that she’s already told us about in multiple specials, interviews and songs? If so, head over to Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com to purchase her latest effort.

PreOrder Ready – David Sedaris

Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls will be released on April 23rd, 2013. It’s available for Pre-Order through Amazon currently. This highly anticipated book from reader favorite David Sedaris is already making waves. 

It’s an essay compilation book, which seems to be the trend for popular books recently, is supposedly hilariously dark and observant and the cover is beautiful as well. I’m looking forward to this release, I’m sure I’ll be happy I did.

Worth the Read: The Silver Linings Play Book

This candid look at life and relationships examines what how a person moves on and reclaims their life when everything goes wrong.

A refreshing piece of writing that spawned an amazing movie starring Jennifer Lawrence (who won an Oscar, Best Actress for her performance) and Bradley Cooper (nominated for Best Actor)

The movie is a great watch but the book is still worth the read. Definitely give it a try, Matthew Quick does a good job of creating unforgettable, real characters and weave a story that any one of us could have lived.

Finally got the email I was waiting for, you can PreOrder signed copies of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman through B&N. The pre-order for signed copies is of course, until supplies last and non signed books will be available as well.
