Its Wednesday so you all know what that means....#WBW :)
This week we've got a really special young woman who is paving the way for so many that dream of being in the entertainment industry. Our weekly bookworm is none other than Ms. Angela Yee. She is the host of the World's Most Dangerous Morning Show, The Breakfast Club, which is nationally syndicated.
Check out the interview below to see why books are important to See as well as what a couple of her favorite reads are...
Yee, what is your passion?:
Education is my passion.
Do you have a favorite author?:
Yes, I actually have a few. Terry McMillan for her fictional novels when I want to escape reality, Robert Greene because his books stimulate my mind and change how I perceive things, and I always loved the way Shakespeare's characters speak and the basic plots he uses.
What are your top 5 favorite books?:
- Mastery by Robert Greene
- The Operator by Tom King
- Are You There God, It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume
- I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
- Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare
How have the above listed books helped to mold you into the woman that you are today?:
I remember growing up and reading every Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary book, and spending hours in the house or at family gatherings zoned out. Then I went through a phase where I was into horror movies and I read every Stephen King book, including the super long It and the book Thinner where the gypsy put a case on the main character. I always liked reading the book before I saw the movie and watching the storyline develop from what I pictured in my mind. Reading also helped me develop an understanding of different time periods and cultures that I would have never known, and even learn more abut the opposite sex.
What is the one book that you would read over and over again?:
I usually don't read books multiple times because I have so many that I haven't read yet but when I was younger I read Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger a few times.
What is your favorite quote?:
"Don't be a hard rock when you really are a gem...." by Lauryn Hill
What would be the title of your first book? Why?:
"What About My Notes" because I'm always researching things and yes, because of the Birdman interview we had...lol
