I recently shared this book in my Top 5 Rainy Day Reads and I can’t stop shouting about it even though I’m only about 2/3 in. It’s a breathtaking fantasy set in pre-colonial Nigeria with stunning imagery and beautiful writing focused on twin sisters separated at birth, both with the power to stop the Eze from wreaking havoc across the land but not knowing it. I keep postponing reading this book because I don’t want it to end😍😍😍.
The third book in the Shades of Magic series. I sped through the first two books literally on the edge of my seat with hopeless anticipation but it’s taking me forever to get through the third one. It might be because I’m reading too much fanfiction again.
Lagoon is a Science Fiction novel set in Lagos that combines superhero comic and Nigerian mythology. I’ve only just started this one and I keep it my bag to read on my way to and fro work so I’m not quite sure what it’s about yet but it’s interesting.
What Did You Recently Finish Reading?
I thought this was amazing. It was a quick read about Margot Sanchez, a middle-class Latina teen desperately trying to fit in with her rich school friends and making bad choice after bad choice as a result. this book touches on so many important topics such as gentrification, infidelity and drug abuse.
I loved this although not as much as I thought I would. I loved the haunting magic and the atmospheric setting. I loved the characters and their little quirks. I wish it had been longer so I could have spent a little more time in Port Lewis but it’s a series and I’m looking forward to reading the rest.
Lauren Spieller does an amazing job portraying sibling relationships in She’s The Worst. Two sisters have drifted apart, a wedge that was unknowingly driven between by their parents’ constant fighting but there’s still time to mend the relationship. It was difficult at certain points to read because I saw glimpses of my own sibling relationships.
The Black Veins is a YA Urban Fantasy novel that focuses on Blythe as she tries to save her family with the help of six other guardians. There’s secret magic governments, a beat-up yellow Volkswagen, fighting monsters, diversity and an epic road trip. What more could one ask for? Check out my review to dispel any doubts
What Do You Think You’ll Read Next?
I read A Short History of Tractors in Ukranian and didn’t stop laughing until the last page so when I saw this book at the library I had to pick it up. Hopefully, it will alleviate my sad mood.
I managed to catch up to the Potterhead ReRead Challenge 2019 and hopefully I’ll start reading it this week if I can stop reading fanfiction during my free time.
Gay wizards in wizard school? Sign me up. And for the love of all that is good and holy let’s stop comparing all books that have gay wizards to Carry On and assuming they are copycats before reading. Okay? Thank you.
I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of self-care, mental health guides. Although I’m usually expecting a step-by-step miracle healing I never get it so I’ll keep it searching, somebody out there must know what’s up right???
