Honoring Black History Month: Best in Cooking, Mystery and Politics

During Black History Month, Booksfubu is reminded how far African Americans have come and how much more we have to go.  Over the years and even decades, there has been tremendous opportunity for people of color as writers, directors, and producers and Booksfubu especially has found that the books written by African Americans to be delivered with flavor, directed by love and produced to speak the truth.  As a tribute to Black History Month, each week Booksfubu will feature three top best books in various categories including Best in Fiction, Nonfiction, Autobiography, Cooking, Mystery, Politics, Religion, Romance, Childrens’, and Self Help all written by African Americans.  Of course, most of theses books, Booksfubu has read but if you would like to add to the list, leave a comment!

Description: A smart, seductive, and highly sensual novel that depicts the taboo-busting escapades of a beautiful young art dealer.  Description: For successful African-American businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction…to sex. Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction, Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment — and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her “fatal attraction” — as chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman’s mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage…and her life.

Description: Senator Obama has written a book of transforming power. Only by returning to the principles that gave birth to the Constitution, he says, can Americans repair a political process that is broken, and restore to working order a government that has fallen dangerously out of touch with millions of ordinary Americans.
