What are you reading?

Words carry such pungent worldviews-Binyavanga Wainaina, One day I will Write About this Place

I love to read and I’ve been reading since I was a child. Books allow me to dream, think, have conversations with myself and the book characters.
I get lost in the book’s world created by the author and I desire to create my own world.

Today, I will share with you some of my 2019 reads that have left me with stories worth telling.
1.Manchester Happened by Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi

2. Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers

3.Becoming by Toke Makinwa

4.Arrows of rain by Okey Ndibe

5.One day I will write about this place by Wainaina Binyavanga

6.Red Dust Road by Jackie Kay

I could go on and on but I would love to hear what books have left an impression on you this year.

I challenge you to mention 5-6 books that have left an impression on you this year in the comment section πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡.

      1. Oh haha. Lemme look for a synopsis.

        The novel recounts the story of an Angolan woman who locks herself into her apartment with her country on the brink of independence. She attempts to cut herself off from the external world for three decades until she meets a young boy who informs her of the radical changes which have occurred in the country in the intervening years. (wikipedia)
