Hello my lovelies and trust you are doing well and keeping safe since outside is now open? It been a minutes since I could sit down and write a blog post and as someone who batch everything I probably will write another one before the end of this weekend. Anyways, that’s not why you are here so lets get into Books I am currently coveting!
If you are new around here I only read African Authors at the moment so everything recommended here are from all African author and I hope you check them out because they are really good books.
Reading the back cover and fyi I have actually bought the book lol. It’s a book of different love stories which the first one is Osun a high-born Nigerian goddess who felt beaten down and unappreciated by her gregarious lover Sango and longs to be truly seen. A criminal lord finds herself swept up in a love that could threaten the entire dynasty she has built, and those she protects within it. A powerful Ghanaian spokeswoman is forced to decide whether to uphold her family’s politics, or to be true to her heart. etc
From the reviews it’s definitely a must read in my book and I can’t wait to do a book review on this on my blog very soon.
Reading booktagram reviews and my fave bloggers talk about this book makes me want to read it so badly and they have describe it as ” A Crazy Rich Asian For West Africa”. As someone who has binge the movie Crazy Rich Asian multiple times this has to be on my list and I am super excited to purchase this after I finish Love In Colour or might get it before hehe (knowing me).
As soon as I saw Dimma Umeh picking up this book, something about the title draw me in and straight away I went on Amazon to read the description and boy I was not disappointed. It gave the My sister the Serial Killer vibes and if you know me well that right up my ally. The book follows Morayo and Eniayo and touching on topic like sexual and emotional abuse and also the society of the hush hush we live in.
This book I have head people talk about it a lot and seen some of my fave bloggers also rave about it as well, hence, why it is on my list to purchase. According to the description I am already interested and can’t wait to get my hands on it.
“The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it’s not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it’s everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Ten years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters’ story lines intersect?”
Let me know in the comment section if any of this book is something you might pick up and also what are you reading at the moment as well.
