Black History Month Book Recommendation: Good Morning, Love
I come from a family of voracious readers. Both my mom and dad love reading and some of my favorite memories of elementary school include the Scholastic Book Fair and the Book-It reading program, you mean you’ll give me free pizza if I do something I already enjoy doing? Hell yeah, I’ll read some books.
With my reading history in mind, I decided that each week, I would recommend a book from a black author as part of Black History Month. This week the book I’m recommending is Good Morning, Love by Ashley M. Coleman.
The 2022 romance novel centered in the music industry was the perfect book for me to pick up as part of my mission to add more diverse voices to my library. In the novel, Carli Henton is an aspiring songwriter working at an illustrious media agency. As Carli is juggling life working at the media agency and spending time with her friends, Tau Anderson, a rising star in the music industry, becomes a client at the media agency Carli works at and adds even more complication to Carli’s life.
Each chapter in Good Morning, Love is a track, so the novel contains 33 tracks instead of chapters. It’s a great fit for anyone interested in music and the music industry, and in addition to being a romance, it’s also a great slice-of-life read as well.
