Summer Must Read: “Platinum”

A nice summer breeze on the beach; lounging in a beach chair under an umbrella with a drink in your right hand and the book Platinum in your left.

Last month blogs and magazines were going crazy with anticipation for Aliya S King’s new book Platinum.  So of course I wanted to see what the hype was all about and I purchased the book as my vacation book to read while traveling to and from Miami.

Let me tell you, if I could sit for a whole day to read the book, I would’ve finished it in one day. Once you pick up the book, you won’t want to put it down. King doesn’t give you time to get bored; drama begins in the first chapter and there is never a dull moment moving forward.

Although Platinum is a fictional novel, there is an eerie resemblance to Hip-Hop and R&B artists as well as video vixens that actually exist in the music industry today.  I often found myself wondering, do those in the industry really live like this? Do the wives and girlfriends really go through this?

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot so all I can do is recommend that you purchase Platinum if you’re looking for a great book to read this summer.  For those of you who participate in book clubs, Platinum is an excellent choice! You’ll definitely have a lot talk about with this one!

Would anyone recommend any other books to read? The summer is a great time to catch up on some fictional reading!

    I just started Eat, Pray, Love. The movie is coming out, but I wanted to read the book before it came out. It is a wonderful book of self discovery a women went through when she takes a year of celibacy and completely removes herself from all the distractions in this life.
