Happy Friday Night Worms! I hope your weekend will feel as long as this week has. Continuing on with giving you excellent woman-written books, today I’m highlighting Beneath the Rising by Premee Mohamed. Mohamed is an indo-Caribbean scientist who lives in Canada and let me tell you that she blew me away with this book. Although I thought it was a little bit slow, I really enjoyed this one.

I’ve been a coffee master at Starbucks and a consultant for a few mom-and-pop coffee shops. You could say that I know a thing or two about the jumpy bean juice.
