Books Of August – With A Lot Of Spice!

Books_August_Homeland_Reviews_ Lesley_Nneka_Arimah

Hey Guys, Welcome to August! It has been way too long since I’ve been here… way too long. It’s hard to believe it’s August already isn’t it? Or is that just me? Are you as excited at the idea of new Nigerian books coming into your life this month? My admiration for Lesley Nneka Arimah was fully expressed in April. And I have carefully avoided reading any of the other stories in this collection till Farafina brings it within reach. It really does feel like Farafina announced they would be publishing this book a lifetime ago. Is that a grey hair […]

I have high expectations for this book in particular because my first read by this author was a real lemon. You can find my rant/review here. However, I have heard great things about The Woman Next Door and I can’t wait to find out if […]

Books Of April – The Month Of Debuts

Ouida Books - Stay With Me - Ayobami Adebayo

Hey guys, Welcome To April!! It’s time to introduce you to exciting new releases by African Authors. This month is kinda special to me because both of the books on this list have been on my mind since 2016 and I am so excited that I’ll get to smell at least one of them before the month ends. Yipee!! The books of April are both by Nigerian Women, both debuts, and both by brilliant writers. I have read most of Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo already if you consider listening to it reading. I know, but I was so curious I couldn’t […]
