Drake caused a stir on Tuesday when he posted an Instagram Story that mixed together his love of sneakers with, apparently, his love of books. In the photo, the rapper perched one of his Nike Hot Step Air Terra Drake NOCTA Black sneakers on top of a large stack of books, and fans quickly started dissecting what books he keeps on his TBR.
The rapper’s pile of books is an eclectic mix of novels, with some of the buzziest literary fiction titles from the last few years. Many of the books feature queer characters and relationships at their center. It’s possible that the books were picked at random to make a nice stack to show off his sneaker, but it’s also possible that Drake loves these books. Or maybe he’s even planning to follow in the footsteps of celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Steph Curry, Malala, Emma Watson, and countless others and start his own book club. He’s also been branching out as a producer, working on shows like “Euphoria” and “Top Boy,” so it’s possible the books could be related to movie and television projects he’s considering. Let’s break down the books on display.
