The Hate U Give: THUG. It’s rare to see a great movie adaptation of a book but I saw the movie of this book last week and I think they nailed it. I loved it. This book review has been sitting in my drafts for months and I’m just going to publish it without editing much. Angie Thomas is a good writer .. That’s the author of this book btw… This book blew my mind, I almost didn’t believe that this is her first book. Just putting it out there.. I hope my first book blows minds as this one did… The hate you give is a fictional novel that gives a victims perspective to the police vs black people shootings in America. I read stories and watch videos about the shootings and Black lives matter movement on social media but I didn’t really understand it. A lot of things just…

Lets just take a minute to acknowledge the beauty of the name Gabourey.. it sounds so fancy and bougie… i was soo happy when she emphasized that her name isn’t gabby but Gabourey… lol. i don’t know why. If you don’t know Gabby or Gabourey, then you are on a long thing.. Maybe not sha.. she was the lead actor in the movie Precious… she was very noticeable because she was quite big in the movie (she has lost some weight now).. i never really finished precious the movie and i have no idea how it ended. i saw a bootleg version that stopped in the middle… (dont judge guys..this was like in 2010/2011) i still remember where it stopped … the scene where maria carry told Precious that she had HIV. this same precious movie is the movie that has now caused Monique career to take a nose dive.. …

Read part 1 and Tokes review here This is the review of a book that was a hot in its own right… it didn’t blow as much as Tokes book but it was kinda a big deal too. Anybody here watches Jennifer’s diary by Funke Akindele? Its arguably one of the best Nigerian TV shows ever… its this hilarious Dramady about a village girl (funke akindele) who wants to fit in at all cost.. Unlike normal nollywood with the predictable endings and terrible characters,… Jennifer’s diary is good!!!! Well we all got an onscreen sweetheart from Jennifer’s diary in the name of Toyo baby… the sensible educated friend of Jennifer.. She was a newbie actress but a really good one… suddenly we stopped seeing her on screen… she was kinda written out.. Or they just pushed her character to one corner… and we all (me sha) went online to find…

Shoe Dogs are people “who devote themselves wholly to the making, selling, buying or designing of shoes,”. I got this definition from the book. I am definitely not a shoe dog as I couldn’t care less the kind of shoe I am wearing. Comfort above all also for me. I had never heard about Phil Knight before reading this book. I couldn’t even find a picture of his wife after a google search. That how private his family is. Now that I’ve devoured the book… I can now say Phil Knight is just the Irumole (God) of sport shoes and business.. The best part about him: his personality. which is so relatable, that anybody can be a Phil Knight anywhere in the world. You can tell that I like him right. This book is an autobiography (he’s a good writer by the way) about how he started his business Nike…
