Hey I love your blog but did you know that there's a book named Belle by Beverly Jenkins that I love sooooooo much and when I heard that it was going to be a movie I was so excited but then I realized that it was a different belle who was a mixed race (the book belle by Beverly is a fully black girl and when I read it I think of Lupita Nygon'o playing her even though Belle is 16 years old) but anyways you should check that book out its so amazing I'm tellin you you will fall in love lol -Kay

The summary would actually make a great period film! But they’d have to come up with a different name. I’m going to buy it and read it. 

Thanks for the recommendation!! 

Beverly Jenkins does a lot of period piece romance novels with amazing black heroines and awesome storylines.  All her stories should be movies.

(Particularly Destiny’s ranch stories and the second book, Destiny’s surrender.  An unapologetic black woman about her sexuality and about what she did for a living and just everything.

Ugh, I LOVE HER BOOKS.

I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE LAST DESTINY BOOK BECAUSE BLACK FEMALE PIRATE!

-lies in a puddle crying over books I love.-

Period book suggestions are falling into my lap!!

Thanks. I love reading and Black people in period settings so this is perfect.

If any of you have other suggestions let me know! :)

The Preacher’s Promise and The Lawyer’s Luck by Piper Huguley are both historical romances with Black leads. I have not read them but I’ve heard good things.

Gold Mountain by Sharon Cullars has a Black heroine and Chinese Hero. It’s set in 1860s California.

The whole side chick main chick bullshit is boys trying to create a pop culture in which cheating on the woman you’re with is considered cool or normal.

Don’t perpetuate it.

College kids literally don’t care about walking in the way of cars at school because we’re like “hit me i don’t care pay my tuition.”

"Hit me my thesis is due in 12 hours and I haven’t started it"

"Hit me I have a final in an hour and I didn’t study"

"Hit me I’ve been on a 24 hour drinking binge and I’m invincible"

"Hit me. You’re a university vehicle and I’ll get free tuition."

"Hit me I feel like a failure anyway"
