Blasian Lit Thread #15

Imagine, I stumbled across a couple of books that I thought had been featured already on the BN. However, it looks like they are yet to be so here we are. Do let me know if I'm double posting some books.

Until Now by Denise Skelton
Terry Meyers’ life seems to be falling apart. Her husband left her and their 2 sons for a woman 10 years her junior, she has a mortgage that she can’t afford, a car that stays broken more than it works and a son who’s going through puberty and seems set to drive her crazy in the process. Add to that the desire to go into business with her cousin, who is adamant that that will never happen and Terry believes her life could not get much worse.

Wade Nelson has moved back to Chicago to work as the new English teacher at Jefferson high. His strained relationship with his father and has kept him away for many years. What his family doesn’t know is that Wade has another agenda for being back in Chicago.

As things seem to go from bad, to worse, Terry decides it’s time to take stock in her life. First on the list, handle her deadbeat future ex-husband. Second, find a new career. Third, swear off men, what’s the point, she always chooses the wrong one, always ends up being used or hurt… Until Now…

When Wade meets feisty Terry Meyers, the last thing he’s think about being in a relationship with anyone, let alone a woman who has two children, but Terry has a way of finding herself in rather strange situations and he just happened to be the one there to bail her out. With a past that he has never put to rest, Wade, by no means, considered the idea of settling down. Until Now...

Comment: Please ignore the cover, Wade Nelson is supposed to be Malaysian-American.

Comments: I've actually read Shanghia Sheena and it was interesting but very short. It was fast-paced, some may find the past too fast but I liked it and at a point I wanted to write my own longer version of the story but I've never been good at fanfic.

      Hell naw it ain't a good thing. She has good ideas but her execution leaves A LOT to be desired, and she doesn't handle criticism well.

  2. The name Mahogany SilverRain sounds like a cross between a hood lit name and a fanfiction name. >_<

    Also, I know this has been said over and over, but these book covers make me has a sad. :(

  6. *face palm* I'm so glad Blasian Narrative is the type of site that calls out foolishness when they see it. So many interracial blogs lose their minds when they see media directed at them. They don't even take time out to analyze it.

      New rule: you CAN judge a book by its cover. Any previous claims to the contrary, FUCK WHAT YA HEARD!

    2. I been saying that for years. A lot of books don't even get a second glance because the cover looks like shit. If they don't even merit a second glance, they for damn sure ain't getting picked up to read. I don't know why some authors don't get that. You don't always need people to grace your covers; the right image can say it all.

      These here? Failure. What might actually be a decent book is buried beneath an atrocious cover.

  8. Has this list of Blasian media from Amazon ever been mentioned? Some items have been mentioned on here though...:
