I’ve listened to a lot of audio books over the last 6 weeks.
I will be highlighting them

and now have my husband hooked on them!

Put On Your Crown
read by Queen Latifah
From the Publisher:

Modeled after Maria Shriver’s Just Who Will You Be, Queen Latifah’s goal with Put On Your Crown is to help young women build a strong sense of self-esteem. A US Dept. of Justice survey found that females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to partner violence than any other group, almost triple the national average. Cases like Chris Brown’s assault on pop star Rihanna showed an ugly side of adolescent life. However, Queen Latifah has always been a shining example of a woman happy with herself and unwilling to compromise to fit into the “hollywood ideal” of what a confident beautiful woman should look like.

The second single from the album, “Ladies First,” was eventually named by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock ‘n’ Roll.

By the time her second album “Nature of a Sista'” came out in 1991, Queen Latifah had begun investing in small businesses in her neighborhood, and acting both in television and movies. After the death of her brother and a soured deal with Tommy Boy, The Queen released her third album, “Black Reign”, and founded Flavor Unit Records and Management. She also landed a regular spot on Living Single and went on to star in a plethora of feature films including: Set It Off, The Perfect Holiday, Taxi, and Bringing Down the House.

My Review:
I enjoyed reading this book
(you can find my review HERE),
but listening to it, was even more fun!
Queen Latifa’s voice, just makes you feel good:-)
Upbeat, smooth, and rich.
She speaks as beautifully 
as she sings.
Great message for women of any age.
Thanks so much to Anna and Hachette!!!
