Coldest Winter Ever follow-up book

It’s been 13 years since readers passed around Sister Souljah’s addictive novel, Coldest Winter Ever, about a cutthroat young woman whose love of money led to her demise. Souljah’s best-selling book quickly spread through college dorms, beauty shops, book clubs, prisons, and led to a resurgence of the Street Lit, genre.  Despite talks of a film, and many fans clamoring for a follow-up, Souljah made readers wait—until now.

In the new book, A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story, Souljah takes readers back inside the inner-workings of the Santiaga clan.

According to a press release, A Deeper Love Inside “revisits the lives of the beloved characters from The Coldest Winter Ever, but this time tells the story through the eyes of Porsche Santiaga, the forgotten middle sister. Porsche is young and beautiful, loyal to her family and friends, and unafraid to fight and love with the same extreme intensity. Readers are sure to be drawn to this coming-of-age story, told in Sister Souljah’s magnificent signature style.”

A Deeper Love Inside will hit bookstores on January 29, 2013 and if fans are still in love with Winter, then they will flock to this one.

What do you think? Will you be reading, A Deeper Love Inside?

    Yes, of course! Flyy Girl and The Coldest Winter Ever are the two books that reversed my disinterest in reading as a hobby.

  • nona

    No. I can’t really relate to the characters.

  • Amaka

    Can’t wait:)

  • Me

    I think I love these books because the characters are nothing like me. I haven’t been through any of that stuff… except being poor lol. But I love slipping into another world and realizing people really think like that. It makes me appreciate my life more.

  • Ms. Write

    But what about Winter????

  • heavenleiblu

    I’ll pass. After reading the terrible writing in her follow-up fictional offerings, I’m convinced that “…Coldest Winter…” was a fluke.

  • Crys F&WM

    hope it’s better than midnight : /

  • EST. 1986

    If I remember correctly, she was last in jail, doing time.

  • Christa

    Cant wait!!!!!!!!!!

  • Marcia

    Her books are entertaining, I have read all of her stuff and I will certainly pick up this one!

  • chrissy

    Midnight WAS good. It had a different perspective than the other books because S.Souljah placed a cultural perspective that can be appreciated. I loved how she was able to intertwine Midnight’s love, loyalty, and strength for his family. Even though the whole saga between him and his girl was weird, I could appreciate his background for what it is and why he acted the way he did with Winter.

  • Niki

    I’ll wait until I see the reviews…she got me with Midnight. Won’t happen again… side eye o_0

  • kylieky

    are you serious??? That was a damn good book and the sequel to it was even better.

  • Est. 1986

    I couldn’t even get past the first few pages of that book. I was surprised when I saw a second book on Midnight.

  • TyrannicalsaurusWrecks

    I think what a lot of readers want to know is what happened to Winter.

    To me Midnight was just OKAY, and I couldn’t really get into Midnight and the Meaning of Love (I got bored after book 2, chapter 2). I will give this new one a chance, although my expectations aren’t too high.

  • kylieky

    finally someone who understands. I think the whole thing with his culture is what disinterested people, but i appreciated it.

  • Humanista

    Wait….so I should be blaming “The Coldest…” for the sudden Street Lit popularity? Smh.

    I read it, though. I found it to be pretty infuriating, although it was well-written, because the chick just couldn’t get right. True tragedy. Would be interesting to read the sister’s perspective.

  • laughing808

    I most certainly will read this sequel……..I might have to re-read The Coldest Winter Ever again.

  • AM

    Most definitely!! I am hoping and praying that Midnight somehow is part of it!

  • StacyAustralia

    I agree. I thought the book was good. I think people were lost because it wasn’t a ghetto hood story.

  • janschild

    Absolutely! I love Sister Souljah!

  • Rachel

    So excited!!! Have to agree with midnights story…wasn’t really interesting but hopefully this is better

    I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • patti

    I liked the other books because they were not my life. It was a pleasant, interesting escape. I generally don’t like those hood novels, but Sister Souljah writes well, and pays attention to cultural details, and I appreciate that perspective. So yes I’ll read it, even if the other two were a bit unbelievable.

  • Kelly

    I will read it ! I can’t wait.

  • sprinklez

    ABSOLUTELY.. WITHOUT A DOUBT! im counting down on the calendar so i can be in line!

  • Wendy Kellam

    Excited! I love her work!! I cant wait to read it!

  • dee

    I have already pre-ordered the book! I have read all three books & enjoyed every page. I will admit Midnight’s story was deep. Possibly too deep for those who do not regularly enjoy more than just the “hood” novel. Midnight’s story was beautiful & gangster, just not the typical! Souljah hasn’t lost her touch…..just wanted to show how she has elevated & challenged her readers to do the same!

  • Deb

    Of course I’m going to read it but did any of you read Midnight? That was dissappointing to start off but creeped up on me and grabbed me. I loved it.

  • Francine

    I will be reading the book. I’ve read both midnight books and coldest winter ever. I love Sister Souljah writting just hated the fact the the readers/fans had to wait so long.

  • Rian Tiffany

    I’m definitely going to read, and tell everyone I know to read it as well. I’m so excited, its been long overdue!!! :-)

  • Natasha Samone Reeves

    I love this book, I cant wait for her to put out another book.. I cant wait for her to continue with the Midnight saga, omg 5 stars..keep up the good work.

  • Natasha Samone Reeves

    Yes, ii hope she come out with another book 2 da midnight saga..

  • Natasha Samone Reeves

    Are you serious, midnight was an excellent read. My gurls and ii have had many discussion about those books. Been trying to get a male perspective on the book..

  • Blue

    Maybe I’ll read this. I loved the Coldest Winter ever (even though there was no PlayStation in the early 90′s according to her book) I read the book about Midnight & it bored me to tears. it was so unrealistic it wasn’t even funny. Oh & let me not start about how it bashed black AMERICAN women. I thought it was going to be a back story about hsi life & how he met Santiaga etc.But instead he was chasing after some Japanese girl in China Town. It’s sitting on my shelf collecting dust if anyone is interested in borrowing it. Hell you can keep it if you like.

  • Natasha Samone Reeves

    How can yu say that. This is the same midnight that was on coldest winter..the story about him is phonomal, an excellent read, then if yu read coldest winter, both midnights and the Porschestory, you kno there are a lot of things, that have to be finished like, wat really happened w his dad, his mom dies. All the books have to tie in. I truly hope that she is coming out with another book.

  • Audrey

    Can I have the book

  • Angelah Browne

    I could not agree more with your entire comment.

  • http://smith marcus

    I could not get into the Midnight books, they bored me to death. I loved the Porsche Santaiga book but I would have loved to see a follow up just about Winter and how she ended up in prison and what will happen when she gets out of prison. Will she try to get with Midnight even though he has several wives? The Porsche was mostly about Porsche and not winters life…
