Talia Hibbert

Get a Life, Chloe Brown

Talia Hibbert is a British author who writes diverse romances with a good amount of heat and a lot of humor. I jumped into her backlist after reading her for the first time. Her books have consistently made me laugh out loud. I’m at the point where I see her name and place a hold on anything she puts out..

How to be an Antiracist

The idea of what it means to be racist has become a really polarizing political issue and one that is taboo for many people. How to be an Antiracist provides a new approach to viewing racism that focuses on the impact public policy has on communities of color instead of individual beliefs. This helps to frame the issue in a less polarizing way without downplaying the severity of the situation and helps focus attention on possible solutions. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in race relations in America and People interested in politics and people interested in current events.

The Sellout

This book pushes one to examine power structures, injustice and gentrification within the realm of a small area of Los Angeles. Almost every character is a caricature, and is a most brilliant satire.
