Olivia Anakwe Shares Her Reading List And Talks All Things Books

If you follow model and college student Olivia Anakwe on Instagram, you will see pictures from her latest editorials or campaigns, a killer selfie or two, and her relaxation essentials - a good book and some almond matcha.

As an avid reader myself, I'm always looking for book recommendations, especially with summer coming up. Olivia - who I've had the pleasure of interviewing before - shared some of her favorite books with me and discussed her interest in reading as well as a brilliant idea for a children's book that I hope actually gets published one day!

Olivia's Favorite Books

Have you always had an interest in reading?
I've never thought about it, but I think I have always really enjoyed reading. My mom was always taking me to the bookstore or to the library when I was younger. Growing up I remember having required reading; it would be about 20 pages a night. I actually really enjoyed that and and any extra time I would have, I would dive into a new book. Books are just a great escape.


Do you have a favorite genre of books or favorite authors?
I really enjoy suspenseful, drama novels. Recently, I have been seeking out works by African-American novelists in particular. 

If you wrote a book, what would it be about?
Typically, I enjoy creative writing, so my book would definitely fall under the fiction category. A few weeks ago, for a school assignment, I made up a story about a talking baguette. It followed his birth at a French pâtisserie, his journey through France with his owner, and led up to his demise at Sunday dinner. Maybe I could turn that into a children's novel. 

If you could be a character from any book, who would it be and why?
Elizabeth Gilbert from "Eat, Pray, Love." I want to experience a worldly, spiritual journey; she had such a transformative experience.
