Whether I’m reading a book about self-care or racial residential segregation, watching The Haunting of Hill House, or listening to Very Presidential with Ashley Flowers, I cherish each opportunity to escape from reality and dive into another world. That’s why I created Escape with Imani.
My love for reading began early in life when my mom would take my siblings and I to Borders and let us roam and pick out book for HOURS. (Quick side note: I have come to love Barnes & Noble but will always be a loyal Borders fan.) My appreciation for escapism via tv shows, documentaries, movies, and podcasts developed later!
So I frequently find myself reading a lot of books (often more than one at one time), listening to a different podcast each day of the week, and researching new shows, documentaries, or movies to watch. Given the smallest chance, I WILL recommend a book, podcast, or show to my family and friends. Strangers too.
Escape with Imani will feature book summaries and reactions, as well as podcast/movies/show recommendations for the books and shows I’m currently watching. Fall is approaching! Now is the time to start buying the books and queueing the shows and movies that you want to read and watch while you get cozy with a cup of apple cider, hot chocolate, or a pumpkin spice latte. Be sure to check in if you’re looking for recommendations! Also, feel free to read and watch along with me.
In the meantime, let’s chat! What’s your favorite way to escape?
