Im currently reading this book and as an Author I fell COMPLETELY in love from the very first story. It's open on my Kindle even as I write this reveiw right now. Her play on words is RIDICULOUS. If you dont read another lesbian book in life read this one. Im just sitting here smiling. It is exactly what it says it is "Black Girl Love", some namesless and faceless, but still powerful all the same. Not many people can do that. She has been added to my list of Authors to colab with and meet one da ...more

Faces of Love

“Black Girl Love” by Anondra “Kat” Williams contains 20+ short stories and 6 poems that touch on the different phases of Black Girl Love.

The words in this book are hypnotic, sensual, and free-flowing. The first poem, ‘Black Girl Love,’ offers readers a peek into what the rest of the book has to offer. Each story is something you can relate to from your own personal experience or from someone you know. She covers topics such as one night stands, abusive love, and communication issue

Black girl love, the serious kind. Makes your heart beat, and can blow your mind.
The touch of a brown hand, a kiss of full brown lips, the sway in her back, the curves of her hips.
The sweet chocolate nectar that falls down, mouth wide open not making a sound
as you celebrate the love of the many shades of brown!

The subtle nuances of maybe, and could we, and we are; excite and titillate the senses allowing us to remember a moment, a day, a person, a time and space in our hearts.

Thru the bumps and

I figured I shouldn't review my own book but I could post a review from Amazon.

"Black Girl Love" is an explanation of why the love of a black woman quickens the woman lover in us. Each character experiences love in ways that are reminiscent of the last one you had or the one that you've always wanted.

In each story and poem, the author shares moments of women loving women in ways that flow from the traditional to the unexpected. Sometimes loving naively. Sometimes perfectly present and sometimes

Black Girl Love should be read by every black lesbian. Tender, sweet, sometimes spicy stories that encompass the full range of love between women. Anondra's prose is poetic and masterful.

The women in my book club HATED IT b/c of grammer carelessness. I lovedit b/c of content, emotion and passion. After reading, I just wish that the author included TRANS* issues. Whether it be F to M or trans sexual/ trans gender. That would have further engaged a larger more diverse "lesbian" reader base.

Poetry flows through the author's narration making each story a beautiful, visual, and easy read. Very tasteful. I enjoyed it.

This book is a collection of stories and poems that I wish a copy editor went over on more time. I'm being nit-picky but there were some typos and random font changes that irked me just a bit.

Besides that, I did enjoy reading this book. I was a quick read (less than 2 hours) but I really felt like I could connect to some of the narrators.

Keep loving Black Girl

This book is enjoyable from start to finish; from the living and loving to the hurting and healing. Each story is on the same level of greatness which makes it difficult to pinpoint a favorite scene.

Black Girl Love is refreshing, enduring, rough when it needs to be and gentle all in the same. There is no character that can standout because each are written with the same amout of beauty and flaws. Most are faceless and nameless, leaving the imagination to run in whatever di

black girl love laughs. black girl love cries. black girl love hurts. black girl love plays. black girl love is relentless in its desire, pure in its sexuality, heartbreaking in its need. black girl love is sweet in its honesty, simple in its complexity, clear in its confusion, absolute in its choices. black girl love is bold, fearless, intense, and refreshingly unapologetic for who and what it is. Most importantly, black girl love is love that captures the heart and soul of black girls in love. ...more

This is the second book I've read and loved by Anondra Williams. There is something so comforting and relaxing about her writing style. The language she uses is eloquent and straight forward. The collection is nicely curated and very cohesive. This is one I think I'll need to have in paperback as well- definitely the type of book you could re-read on occasion. Love love love
