Orange is the New Black Booklist #StreamTeam

Say it Rah-shay By Jul 01, 2016 1 Comment

I just finished watching the latest season of Orange is the New Black and what a ride! The inmates in Litchfield are going through it; the prison is not for profit and cutting costs seems to mean cutting inmates quality to life. One thing that didn’t seem to get cut was the library for the inmates to use and in this season the inmates can be spotted reading.


OITNB Season 4

I dig it. When I need some time to recharge there is nothing like getting lost in a good book while sipping a cuppa. Yes, this is as cliched as it gets but yo, adulating ain’t easy and if I can take a moment to get away by reading some words, so be it.

While watching season four I spotted these titles and then had some help from the inter webs for other titles.

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. This is the story a young Nigerian woman who emigrates to the United States for a university education and stays for work. She returns to Nigeria and has a chance to rekindle the relationship with her first love. 

A Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. This is the second volume of The Kingkiller Chronicle. Kvothe continues his narrative of how he became a powerful legend. 

It by Stephen King. Pennywise the clown, kids battling a demon, sleepless nights. Stephen King’s It is the scariest book I have ever read.

I would swear I heard Taystee mention The Harry Potter series more than once. This could be wishful thinking on my part but I am totally leaving this here.

Professor Facebook provided these titles:

Black Cindy/Tova was reading What Makes Sammy Run? by Budd Shulberg

Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright

Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.

And the good ole Buzzfeed came to the rescue with this list of Every Book Referenced On Season 4 Of “Orange Is The New Black which reminded me of my ire at Piper reading my beloved Nick Hornby.

    Bird by Bird by Anne LaMott was an excellent read; considering her prose and her style in the setting of a woman’s prison is fantastic and fascinating. Unique take, good list, great commentary (as always).

Your turn! Tell it to Rah-shay!
