Shawnette DAG...I can't vote on not a one...haven't read any of the books listed...thanks for sharing though...good luck to all the nominees...Happy Voting :-)


message 2: by Eva (new)

Eva Leger I really cannot believe Push by Sapphire is in the list and A Piece Of Cake by Cupcake Brown isn't. Push SUCKED in my opinion and APOC was one of the best urban-lit books EVER.


message 3: by Cresha (new)

Cresha I read a really good book by the author name Dex it's called Nasty D!ck (i know what a title) but this book is so good that I read it in less than 24 hours. If you want a good read you gotta get this one along with Hoodwinked and In Cahootz from Quentin Carter.

Yes nasty d!ck was something else, I must agree.

Be'n Original I thought Push was a good story but poorly written.

I read Nasty Dick by Dex too. It was crazy! A very good read. Highly recommend!

It no mistake that Push was written the way it was. It was written by Precious herself who couldnt read or write.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Be'n wrote: "I thought Push was a good story but poorly written." I think that was the intention of the writer.


message 9: by Kendra (new)

Kendra Carter I just purchased dex book. Hope it's good. Thanks for recommending it.
