We kicked off 2017 by diving right into genre fic. Specifically, urban fiction. We read This could Be Us But You Playin‘ by Cachet. Mollie lays out the plot, Danielle remains bougie and bitter, and in the end, we take up that age-old debate of art vs. commerce. All in all, not a bad way to wrap up this book.
Next time, join us as we discuss Morgan Parker’s new book of poetry, There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyonce.
Have you read This Could Be Us But You Playin’ or another urban fic title? Want to contribute to the debate? Got a book you think we should check out? Tweet us at @blackchicklit.
