Here are the people/works who inspire me & challenge me on a daily basis:

(@ signs are directed to wattpad, unless otherwise noted)

A great friend of mine who weaves such an amazing tale when it comes to her MJ stories!

Go visit her site and make sure to join to be able to read her books!

They're well worth it!

GiGiChante18

In my eyes, she's a legendary MJ Fan Fic writer from YouTube.

You can find finished MJ fan fics of hers on Youtube or wattpad.

 A writer that writes both Michael Jackson and Prince fan fics.

Man in the Music

by Joseph Vogel

A nice inside look into the songs/albums/era of Michael Jackson.

Michael & Me

by Shana Mangatal

Controversial to many, beloved by me.

I've shipped Michael & Shana before I knew what she devuldged in the book. 

10/10 recommend.

This site honestly wouldn't have been made had it not been for my admiration for this late great author.

He's authored my favorite books:

Pleasure

An Accidental Affair

Genevieve

One Night

The Education of Nia Simone Bijou

 

If you sleep on him, you're sleeping on me...

A pure LEGEND in the MJ Fan Fic community!

While she doesn't write anymore, her site is filled with a variety of stories that'll keep you wanting more!

Waiting to Exhale

by Terry McMillan

This summer (2022), I finally read this book after seeing the movie all too many times.

This book had me LOCKED IN!

I recommend it to everybody!

The sequel "Getting to Happy" was released in 2010 and while it's not as great as it's prequel... I recommend reading it too.

Easily one of my new favorite books.

Don't ask if I prefer the book or the movie more though 🥴

A VERY underrated writer who deserves all the credit she gets! 

She's been around a long time and truly deserves so much in the writing sphere!

By an anonymous writer, this story meant a lot to me when I was younger

Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in his Final Days

by Bill Whitfield & Javon Beard.

One of my absolute favorite MJ books.

If you want to learn more about MJ, go read this book!

Michael Jackson: The Magic, The Madness, The Whole Story 1958-2009

by J. Randy Taraborrelli

An inside look into Michael Jackson and the Jackson's lives.

You be the judge on what's real and what's tabloid junk.

I enjoy this book nonetheless (although, most fans don't).

Writes one of my favorite books called "The Other Woman."

My Family

by Katherine Jackson

I reference this book often when it comes to MJ research.

10/10 recommend for any Jacksons fan.

Will

by Will Smith

I just finished this book 12/29/2021 and it was a journey!

I found myself inspired by Will Smith's story and his thoughts on many topics now. 

I feel like this page would simply not be complete if I didn't add this wonderful work.

Please go give it a read or a listen (in my opinion, the audio book read by Smith is wayyyyy better)!

Bamboozled by Jesus

by Yvonne Orji

I just finished this fantastic audiobook (2023) by this phenomenal writer, actress, director, and producer.

This book gave me such a new outlook on life!

I shouldn't take the reigns on life when I should just give them to Jesus. Since I've given him the reigns, my life has been better. And I'm more than happy to say that this book continued to remind me of that. 

She has retired from writing MJ Fan Fiction.

But go check out her works anyway, because she's a legend in the community!

 A writer that churns out book ideas like there's no tomorrow!

Dancing the Dream

by Michael Jackson

A book of  poems, lyrics, short stories, by Michael Jackson that I hold near and dear to my heart.

The Michael Jackson Tapes

by Rabbi Shmuely Boteach

Depending on the reader, Shmuely's commentary on his tapes with Michael can be interesting.

Nonetheless, peering into Michael Jacksons' mind means everything to me, which is why I've read this book as many times as I have.

Moonwalk

by Michael Jackson.

It's his only autobiography.

What more is there to say?

One of the best Michael Jackson blogs ever!

La Cienega made a new website called rhythmofthetide.com, but the site has been defunt for years now. Thankfully, her old website is still up.

Avaliable on Wattpad, the author of two fantastic novels, I've grown to enjoy @OnlyLovingMJ's work over the years.

Her "Loving You [Erotic Collection]" has become a fave of mine and I look foward to indulging into the world of "I See Your Soul."

Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story

by J. Randy Taraborrelli

This book came out in 2015. I bought it in 2018. I didn't finish it until 2023 🥴 Only because this book is as big as the Bible (just like Taraborrelli's book on Michael Jackson). Between 2018-2023, I guess I couldn't just sit down and read it. But when I did?!?!? Oh, I couldn't put this book down! 

Taraborrelli did such a phenomenal job with this book. Fans of Beyoncé know that she is quiet and kept. Her seclusion means that as fans, we only hear what she chooses to put out. This book dug deep into the archives of Ms. Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter and has given me a new appreciation for her not only as an artist, but as a human being. Don't get me wrong, she's given us tidbits like my annual watch, "Life Is But A Dream" and her recent film "RENAISSANCE: A Film by Beyoncé," but this book, I feel, filled in the gaps. 

 

Beyoncé inspires me as is, but this book pushed me even further. Especially knowing that Bey was once (and arguably still is), a shy, quiet girl herself, who immersed herself in her talents to become the Queen Bey wE know her as today 🐝
