Sistah Souljah

I have a weird obsession with "Urban Novels" AKA thuggish literature :X i just love them, i can read the whole thing in one night, when i finish i get pissed and wish i didn't rush through the whole thing so fast but its just so damn good! The last Thug Romantic novel i read (lol) was "The Coldest Winter Ever". NOW I HEAR SISTER SOULJAH HAS ANOTHER ONE OUT!! This one is called "Midnight" which by the way was # 7 ON NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLERS LIST, yea that's right ax bout her. "MIDNIGHT, is the new novel by New York Times bestselling author and hip-hop pioneer Sister Souljah. MIDNIGHT is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Sister Souljah's enormously successful debut, The Coldest Winter Ever. Originally published by Atria Books in 1999 and now widely considered the book that created the urban fiction genre, The Coldest Winter Ever is currently in its 20th printing and has over one million copies in print. In announcing the acquisition of MIDNIGHT, Judith Curr, Executive Vice President and Publisher said: "The Coldest Winter Ever was a phenomenon and we look forward to watching MIDNIGHT catch on in the same way" If you read "The Coldest Winter Ever" you would understand how excited I am about this book. I fell in love with Midnight in the first book and im just oh so ecstatic to read this! I'm gonna go pick it up tomorrow after school and I'll let you know how it was after tomorrow. Sincerely, I wont buy CDs but I will buy this sheeeet

I absolutely loved The Coldest Winter Ever . . .

but I heard that Midnight wasn't even good, like all the reviews were bad and it didn't even flow with The Coldest Winter Ever.

I want to read it but I don't want it to be bad cause I loved Midnight in the first book.

Hurry & read it so you can tell me what you thought of it.
LOL

Coldest Winter Ever was the shiettt... When Midnight came out i couldn't believe it, for since we all had a crush on him in the coldest winter ever, lol. But i finished reading the book about 2 weeks ago, and i liked it. It wasn't as good as that one, but it was def a keeper. You should buy it Nebby, its worth the reading time.

i can so feel what ur saying Nebb, i love me some thug novels, check out Nikki Turner, anyways the Coldest Winter Ever is the shit, i read it one day. Now i got Midnight the first day it came out and still haven't read it why, because i know i could finish it in one day as well, like the females above...i fell in lust with Midnights character. My girlfriends have all complained about the new novel. They were supposed me make a movie yrs ago and Jada Pinkett is to play Winter..anyways if ya'll want some good authors lemme know i got a massive stash..lol

I forgot all about this book til I read this post! And then I saw the name Midnight and things kinda came flooding back, well not flooding. I would have to read the other one again before I attmpted to read Midnight cause I read The Coldest Winter Ever in like 2000. But I do know this book was good. This and Fly Girls was crack back then...
