sister souljah books in order

Sistah Souljah books in order

We have an updated list with all the Sister Souljah books in order, so you can enjoy her popular novels and series. Born as Lisa Williamson, she is also known for being an activist, a musician, a film producer.

There are different ways to read Sistah Souljah’s books, but we choose to show you two options that we believe are the most satisfying for readers.

Sister Souljah books in order of popularity

Sometimes it’s better to start with the most popular novels by an author, if you like to read books this way then here you will find Sister Souljah’s books in order of popularity.

We suggest you start with The Coldest Winter Ever series, which is composed of 3 novels.

Once you’ve finished those three, it’s time for Sister Souljah’s second most known trilogy, Midnight, a love story set in the city of Brooklyn which talks about an underworld businessman. The main character, Midnight, is already mentioned in The Coldest Winter Ever series by the way.

And last, but not least, her first book (a memoir), and her only standalone novel so far:

Sister Souljah books in order of publication

Would you rather read Sistash Souljah’s books in order of publication? no problem at all, here goes the list you are looking for including the year each novel was published and the series they are part of.

Sister Souljah books in order

Sister Souljah novels

Ingredients

  • Washington Square Press

Instructions

  • No Disrespect (1995) -Standalone-
  • The Coldest Winter Ever (1999) -The Coldest Winter Ever series-

  • A Moment of Silence (2015) -Midnight series-
  • Life After Death (2021) -The Coldest Winter Ever series-

As you might have already noticed, reading her novels this way might be kind of confusing because that would mean that you would be reading two book series simultaneously.

That’s why we believe it’s better to start with one of Sistah Souljah’s series, and once you are finished then proceed to read the next one. But, of course, this is up to you.

Before we keep going, do you like movie adaptations? then here you will find out why the I Am Number Four 2 movie was never filmed, any guesses?

We didn’t forget about the recommendation we mentioned before! here goes the best Miss Peregrine book set we found out there, it collects the first 3 volumes in the series. Also, we included the film adaptation directed by Tim Burton in case you haven’t watched it yet (watch it after reading the novels though!)

What is this series about?

miss peregrine movie 2

This is the story of Jacob, a 16-year-old boy who finds out that the photo album his grandpa gave to him is more than a weird collection of the most peculiar pictures, but it seems to be a coded message that will make him travel to an island in Wales. There he will find an orphanage, in which Miss Peregrine takes care of the most unique children Jacob has ever seen…

As said before, Ransom Rigg’s initial idea was to make a picture book with some vernacular photographs he had collected. Instead, his publisher suggested he wrote a book in which those pictures would be part of the story. And there you have it, that’s how the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series was born, and then it became a bestseller. Not bad, don’t you think?

There’s a movie adaptation of the first volume of the series, however, it was not as profitable as expected so the movie series was canceled. This happens quite often, in fact, this is the reason why there’s no I Am Number Four 2 movie as well.
