As a writer, I'm often times discouraged when other authors are able to so eloquently put to paper an idea that I may have thought about. And Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl author/director/actress Issa Rae did just that in her debut memoir.

(Adult book with appeal for teens) If you like the humor of writer/TV stars like Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, or Lena Dunham, Issa Rae is your next heroine. This collection of essays is astute and funny. Read the book, and then watch her hilarious web series of the same name!

American Gods by Neil Gaiman. This book was my introduction to Neil Gaiman - which is weird as I had long known about his amazing Sandman comics, but had never found time to read. And I still haven't :) I've read plenty of his books though! Neil Gaiman, I Love Books, Great Books, Books To Read, My Books, Amazing Books, Reading Lists, Book Lists, Reading Time

This book from a masterful storyteller is not to be missed. This book will soon become a TV series!
