First on the list is my best friend's book(SO PROUD OF YOU JAVARIS):



Shameless Plug 
 "Tefnut tells a story of a young woman coming into her own, in this world. “That’s when he took my heart in his hands. And kissed it gently. He opens up his lips then said this poetry” with Erykah Badu’s discography serving as the narrative. It propels the story to heights never seen before in literature. Never finding dull moments, but enlightenment on every page. Erykah has voiced that she likes seeing interpretations of her music. Here’s one for the book lover and the music enthusiast in you.Javaris Squire tells the story in a way that only he had envisioned it. The story taps into the animalistic way of digesting quickly; while giving the reader enough to satisfy their hunger."

                              Writing My Wrongs by: Shaka Senghor (Book)/(Audio)

"In 1991, at the age of nineteen, Shaka Senghor shot and killed a man. He was a young drug dealer with a quick temper who had been hardened by what he experienced selling drugs on the unforgiving streets of Detroit. For years, as he served out his sentence for second-degree murder, he blamed everybody else but himself for the decision he made to shoot on that fateful night. It wasn't until Shaka started writing about the pain from his childhood and his life on the streets that he was able to get at the root of the anger that led him to prison. Through the power of journaling, he accepted responsibility for his violent behavior and now uses his experience to help others avoid the same path."

**Mr. Senghor has accomplished so much since his release from prison. Including, but not limited to: his book, interviews with Oprah, Angie Martinez, and the breakfast club, his TED Talk: Why Your Wrong Deeds Don't Define You, and his own show "Released" on OWN!! Taught at the University of Michigan! Be on the lookout for Mr. Senghor. He is a revolutionist!!

"Aldous Huxley's profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order--all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls. “A genius [who] who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine” (The New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of history’s keenest observers of human nature and civilization. Brave New World, his masterpiece, has enthralled and terrified millions of readers, and retains its urgent relevance to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying work of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascism during the 1930s, Brave New World likewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites."



**I first came across Brave New World, when I helped my sister on her high school essay in 2013. I finally decided to read the whole book in 2017. I'm glad I did. The book was published in 1932, but the details in this book make a person say hmmmm??? It expresses many things people who are considered "conspiracy theorist" believe is happening in the world presently.


"By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force."

**Another Science Fiction book that makes you question your surroundings. Open to the idea of "Humanoids" and humans living amongst one another, because this book is full of them from cover to cover. Published in 1968, Mr. Philip K. Dick takes us on a journey back to the future. It's kind of scary that it's 2018 and we have a "humanoid" by the name of Sophia existing. Have you heard of her? If so, what are your thoughts?

These are just some of my favorite books in 2017
