Let’s not talk about how far we are into 2018 and I feel like we just got here….
Instead let’s celebrate my quasi serious goal of 10 books a month for the year and to focus on reading down my TBR 🙌🏾👏🏾🎉🎈🍾
The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish
This was so good! It turns out I have very specific interest in women comedian memoirs/autobiographies. Even still, Tiffany’s book stands out from the rest because you really can’t tell truth from fiction in this book and that’s 100% ok. Her life story is a crazy and compelling one because for every bad experience she has, she turns around and reaches for the gold. Tiffany would make for a great motivational speaker and if she had a morning show I would watch it. Also she has good celebrity stories.
Adua by Igiaba Scego
This is the beautiful and haunting story of two people desperate to take control of their lives from their parents and the life that results is nothing they expect. I wish this was a bit longer or filled out – I felt that some connecting bits were left out and it could help develop the characters more. Overall, beautiful story of the expression and effects of colonialism, immigration, racism andlove.
