A love story unlike any other I have read, Ebony Roberts’ memoir gets vulnerable as she shares how she fell in love with Shaka Senghor during the last four years of his nineteen year prison sentence. The title alludes to the end of the romantic relationship, and her story highlights how it feels to love someone who is incarcerated as well how difficult it is for their relationship to flourish and readjust outside prison. We often forget the other victims of the legal system are family members who take care of those who are imprisoned.

Many people know of  Elaine Welteroth’s work with Teen Vogue and of her lucky white boots, I was elated to find out she has written a memoir. Because she was the youngest editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue and the first African American director of beauty and health at Condé Nast, I thought I would fall into a book that was full of advice on how she became just that. But this book is the opposite. Instead of writing an advice book, she has been honest about her career and how hard it was being a FOD (first, only, different) in her industry and what happens when you make it to the top.

Picking up where A Discovery of Witches leaves off, the second volume of the All Souls Trilogy is just as adventurous and magical as its predecessor. After travelling through time, newlyweds Diana and Matthew find themselves in Elizabethan London. Though Matthew, a vampire, remembers 1591 like it was yesterday, witch Diana is out of her element, used to technology and definitely not used to wearing a corset. She must adapt to the Queen’s England quickly because it is still up to her to protect the magical world that may or may not be a secret from humans.
